Updates on the car, pics later!

Okay, so here's an update:
  • The car is driving fine aside a few things I noticed.
  • I bought all the necessary paraphernalia for a full lube and oil, oil/air filter.
  • I bought the Haynes manual for it I'm expecting it to arrive very soon if not today.
What is wrong/needs to be done ASAP with the car:
  • Clutch sometimes does not disengage fully. Have to press clutch twice.
  • Maybe need repair to master/slave cylinder. (~$100)
  • Needs full lube, oil, transmission, brake fuid, coolant, etc... (~$100)
  • Needs new brakes, maybe new rotors. (outside race $500 limit) (estimate between ($100-$200)
  • Needs new shocks. (outside race $500 limit) (estimate ~$100)
  • Needs new tires. (outside race $500 limit) (estimate ~$150)
  • Needs a battery. (~$60)
These estimates are conservative and we can maybe get better deals if we go to a junk yard or buy these used or online.


We need a place to WORK on the car, put it on jack stand etc... So if anyone is willing to volunteer space let me know.

I checked with my boss, but he hasn't gotten back to me. If you're against it, what's the worst that could happen? He says no, and we look for another place to store the car.
