I got my 89 plymouth (yes plymouth according to the registration) colt GT from my uncle, who bought it new in 89. He put a new head and pistons in it at 120xxx km because the timing belt snapped. Its now a few thousand off 200xxx. Ive done a bit to it since i got it, new t belt, water pump, starter, and a few other things. Awesome little car and rare around here for sure! Everything was in close to mint condition until i got backed into while parked with a hitch... I wouldn't let Icbc write it off and they couldnt find parts so i made them pay me out to fix it, to the tune of $3400. Bought gab sport 16s and a parts Car with all the parts i need for $1400... including... a 4g63t swap with a garret gt35 ball bearing turbo, act clutch, huge front mount, and the list goes on, needs a bottom end rebuild though so i have a winter project now!Image Image Image Image Image Image

the damage is not too bad a new hood and grill is all you need and that second parts car looks to be in okay shape too, do you plan to keep it and eventually make it better again, or are you going to sell it, either way good job so far.

Thanx! Most of the interior and floor boards on the parts car are rotten, so im going to keep everything i can and get rid of the shell. As for the damage the hood latch support took the brunt of the hit so yeah, it just needs the hood and grill. i couldnt believe they wanted to write it off.
