(Sorry for the rambling at the start)
So as some have you have seen in the chitchat thread me and my gf got a 91' Cabriolet, it is a Digi II 8v auto with 194,xxx miles. There is a story behind me getting this, I original thought I was buying it in December. It was giving to the tow yard my mom worked at(retired in January) in October, it was actually put up in auction twice but didn't sell. My mom happened to mention it to me when she contacted me to get a hold of my younger half brother about a BMW that just came in.
So I went to look at it and instantly saw the gem hiding under the dirt. So I made a offer to my moms boss'dad who was over seeing the company while my moms boss was in drug rehab. He said he was going to go see him the following weekend and would talk to him about it, but he said to consider it mine. So I looked for a intake tube for it because the one on it was shot, I found one and bought it.
The next weekend came around and her boss said no, he made a unreasonable counter offer for a car that had been sitting 2 years at that point. So I was pissed and bummed out. So for a few months after that we looked at other Cabriolets and Cabrios but didn't buy one and honestly both of us gave up on the idea of getting one. And both of us had starting dipping into the funds we had put aside for it.
Fast forward to Tuesday, I was at work and my mom sent me a message asking if I was still interested in it, I said "YES!", she then told me out of the blue her former boss contacted her about it. Said if I didn't still want it, it was going to the scrapper. So I got a hold of the gf to check on the fund situation and if she was interested in it, she said yes. So I got a hold of my moms former boss and made a deal on the phone.
So I got there through a new battery in it, changed the cts(knew it was bad from when I looked at it previously) and installed the intake tube I had bought, but luckily never sold, turned the key and it fired right up! And amazingly for me being the first person to drive it on the road in 3 years it drove really nice.
So now for pics:
The body is really straight, just one tiny ding under the passenger taillight and some scrapping on the bumpers.
And it looks like somebody tried to get in the the passenger door handle.
Door handle damage
