Sure no problem,
I've been looking for a rust free car on the east coast and haven't been able to find anything so I took the risk and bought this and shipped it across the country really hoping that it being a Socal car all its life it wouldn't have rust.
I would classify it as a "survivor/driver car"
Exterior: Is in pretty good condition for its age. The original paint has held up decently well, some oxidation and dents here and there. The drivers fender is pushed in, but the paint isn't cracked so I'm hoping I can get that pushed out without too much trouble. The drivers fender flair is also cracked a bit, but I think it should be fixable. fog lights are cracked, missing a trim piece on the back side window and the whiskers are cracked, but have replacements already coming from Japan.
Mechanically, the "small oil leak" is a pretty major one, about a drip per second. lol Its looking like rear main seal at this point, but once I get the trans off I'll have a better idea. Speedo needle moves around around, and the gas level indicator doesn't work, but it seems to run and drive pretty well. Tires are from March 2003 so those will be changed before its ever driven again. Wheels are the OG 80s Enkei 92s 15x7 +0, two of the lips have a few bends but fixable.
Interior: Really really nice. Better than I expected. seats are in amazing shape with just some fading from the sun on the sides, back is complete with sunshade and spare tire, wood pieces etc. Radio doesn't work well, you have to wiggle fader/balance to get anything to come through.

The car is deep Maroon and the interior is brown and red.

But I haven't found any rust yet, so I am happy with my purchase. :)
