Modifications: I have modified this with a 3.5L FI motronic engine with Dinan chip, 5 speed, LSD, lowered with 16" Alpinas and suspension technique springs and sway bars. Engine and drivetrain upgrade was completed by Carl Nelson at La Jolla Independent.
General History: This car started out life (when I purchased the car) as a USA 1972, 3.0 cs, automatic, dual webers. I have owned this car since 1989 and have restored it along the way. After buying it in 1989 the car was driven twice a month on weekends but due to its mechanical state I was unable to drive it continuously. It always seemed that I would work on it two hours before a drive and then have to work on it for a day after the drive. in about 1992-1993 it failed smog and I let the car sit along side the garage under a blue cover. I had not the means nor the time to start the long process needed. Then in 1996 or so CA lifted the smog exception to 1975 and older car and I started the work. It had 4 flat tires, a blue tarp welded to the roof and black widow spiders in every wheel well. After draining the gas tank, installing a new battery and pumping up the tires I was able to get it started and driving in about a day of work! Since then it has been a rolling registration with extensive work completed in 2002-2005 with paint, interior and a full Carl Nelson engine swap.
