So I bought a car. A 94 940 turbo wagon. Red on black. It has GALAXY rims. It has been a 1 owner car, and I have every record for it since it has always been serviced at our dealer. 190K km.

So Dale, this is the car you saw in the shop when you stopped in. Later that day it sprung a leak, lost all its coolant, and now is spitting coolant out of the head gasket. Probably going to need a new head, hoping itdoesn't need a block. Plan is to fix it and start driving it to work. The body is pretty spotless on this car, so I might put it up for sale at a crazy price (like 6 grand) and see if I get any bites, I figure if a 240 wagon can fetch 4K here, then this should get me 6. If it doesn't sell, perfect because I've been looking for a beater to drive to work since the truck doesn't get a chance to warm up.

Ill snap some pictures this week. Its a nice car.

Woo hoo for being back to the RWD scene, too bad its a grandpa series!

Its very clean. Going to get a couple little dings taken out of the hood. The tail gate has a bit of corrosion around the washer jet. Are the tail gates aluminum on these things? It looks like aluminum corrosion more than rust.

I got the head off the this afternoon. Going to send it to the machine shop and get it checked out. The HG was blown, but it got really hot, hoping the head isn't too damaged.

Maybe by next week I'll have the head back on and can start driving it.
