  • festiva #14

    I scored festiva number 14 yesterday. It's an 89 L with 208,000 miles. I've been a vulture about it for a while. The owner bumped into curb. I'm putting it back together. It needs lower control arms, sway bar, front wheels, oil pan, and then an alignment I guess. It recently got new front wheel bearings, rotors, brakes, alternator, and distributor. I'm going to drive it until I get an efi car with a bad motor and or trans. I have one now, but it has no title. If I track down the title I'll put the swap in it. I figure I'll get an aspire donor car for the suspension/brake upgrade, and a turbo capri or GTX for the engine and trans. Any suggestions on my swap?

      swap

      Purty funny Brian. 8^) I just have the 2. Neither is running yet. I'm the guy that got screwed by the city. They came and stickered my vehicles. I had to get rid of 4 parts cars. Lots of parts bikes. And tons of parts. It was 2 truck loads, 2 trailer loads, and a rollback. I got $200 for the recycling, but no telling how many thousands I lost. I sell on ebay for a living so every time somebody here or on ebay asks for a part I recycled I grumble to myself.

        I know what you mean, I have a friend that happened to. He put plates on his parts cars and the city couldn't do anything then because they were plated!

            I could have used some of those "scrap" parts. Government BS ! Good luck with # 14.
