    Default '98 ZX2 with 34k Miles

    A few months ago I bought this car on craigslist and thought you guys would find it interesting. It's a '98 which I got for $1900 and it had 34,300 miles on it when I first got it (Late November). It looked in pretty rough condition as the bumper was pretty sun-faded and the driver side fender was the wrong color because it was replaced. The headlights were also very foggy and one was cracked so I ordered a new pair and installed them.
    Since I bought it I've replaced the fuel pump (accident), timing belt + pulleys, new tires, headlights, and gotten it painted. All in all I'm in about $3,400 which I think is still a steal for a car with this low miles that runs as well as it does. As of now it's at about 36,500 miles.

    Yeah, I plan on keeping it almost entirely stock for however long I end up having it. The only problem with it now is there is some rust in front of the rear wheel wells, which makes sense for a 18 year old car that's been in the Midwest all it's life.
