Dunno about whether it is interference or not, but it takes a bit to break a chain. I would not be surprised if something else has gone wrong with that motor.

Still though, for a Cosworth like that I'd offer him $100 to let me truck it to a Benz specialist to take a look at, I mean if it were even remotely cheap it'd be completely without peer to tool around in that.

Wikipedia on the 190E Cosworth:
"An enlarged 2.5 L engine replaced the 2.3 L in 1988. It offered double valve timing chains to fix the easily snapping single chains on early 2.3 engines"

This is an honest deal.


This car is for those who aren't so concerned with the exrerior. There is writing in a permanent marker which I will paint over with spray paint before selling (this will be the second time I've done this).
150,000 miles, quality condition.
The clutch is starting to get somewhat weak so, in all honesty, it will probably cost you $700 within the next year; that's simply the way cars are.
Broken rearview mirror, newer brakes, fuel gage is off, windsheild wiper fluid does not work, quality interior, cd/quality speakers, new tires (nice-all terain), mechanically sound, blinkers do not work but hazards do, cigarette lighter might not work.
The broken rear-view mirror and blinkers are the main things needed currently, but it's interesting the way it does not need anything to get you around at this point.
Call Daniel at 000-xxxx. The steering wheel says "owned and controlled by rightness" and that aspect of the car should always reamin, no matter what; I pray that aspect will remain part of the car. There is nothing legal about it, I'm sure, and you can remove it if you want, but the car will hopefully always belong to rightness; the legal document will state you own the car though. (Great car for younger people or those without a high income).
Here is a link with a video which shows what the car looks like http://video.xanga.com/What91365

hey this is my shot at trying to get my bike back. it's a shot in the dark but i guess it's worth the try. you have made my life a living hell and i missed 3 days of work last week and on my 4th this week due to no transportation. missed a few days of class in there too. now i don't know about you scumbags who stole my bike, but i got bills so i need to get around. i am willing to give YOU $500 for MY bike. i don't care if i know your name or even if you lie to me and say you found it in a parking lot down town. here's my #. 520-245-5730

PS: try and put the parts back on it since i'm assuming you stole my only means of transportation so you can stunt on it. thanks.

I don't really know much about J-bodies, but Toyota was trying to sell the Z24 Cavalier (4sp auto only) for Y2.07 Million. That's more than a Civic Type R and almost the same price as a WRX. Were top-end Cavaliers really that expensive back in the day?

Nein. I don't think the Z24 ever went for more than 15k or so back in the mid nineties.

EDIT: unless the car they're currently selling as the Z24 is the US SS. Those go for around 20k I think.

It's a 1986 Audi, but it isn't a Quattro. I still love it anyways because the front sure catches the spirit of the Quattro in Group B Rally. If you don't know what that means, watch this.

Here's the car in question. Are these any good? Like mechanically? I don't care if I have to rewire it, but I do care if the engine explodes. I'd consider maybe selling, or trading my truck damaged 2001 Focus to get this thing.

Ok... I'll bite that it's a 65 Lincoln... but what happened to it? Looks like it's been shortened by several feet... and what's with the two hoods and that apparent gap between the motor and the firewall? (and the apparent wood firewall)?

Reminds me a bit of a project one of my dad's friends is working on... he took a 57 Chevy Bel-Aire 4-door and removed everything from the driver seatback to the rear deck, chopped the top and had to fabricate a shortened frame to fit the body on...

I'd never buy it, but if I lived close, I'd go see that lincoln just to look at it up close...
