Default Salvaged Beauty

Howdy folks. Here she is a 1994 JRSC M45 equipped. She was stripped of her TITLE by fools who attempted to steal her (yes she got salvaged after theft recovery) but her physics are intact, she got a new cloth top as a result. Has no accident records confirmed by Autocheck, Carfax and Local Body Shop. She was supposed to be my parts car for my other 1994 project but now she is part of the family. Less than 80K miles. Came with JR header, Racing Beat Exhaust and Tokico Ultimates Combo. Snagged her for the price of a used JRSC. Too nice to be counted out.

Here she is:

Wow, welcome to the forum! great looking car! Where are you located? Don't meet too many Edwins but I'm another.

Now pull the sC stuff off and replace it with real forced induction!

Not to many lawnmower inventors indeed lol. I'm in Roseville outside of Sacramento.

Nah she will be SC but her sister (I have another white 1994 project) will be Turbo.

a running car with less than 80k for that price (<2000?) is a good deal!

Thanks for the warm welcome guys. The former owner took pride of her and so she is in such a great condition for her age. I'm sorting her out more. She is getting more upgrade and help in the interiors (nothing crazy just clean and appropriate changes in steering wheel, stereo, door cards and eventually seats). The engine bay also needs some grown up treatment; I'm too old for aggressive colors lol.

very nice! is that hole in the passenger door panel, due to aftermarket power windows by any chance?
and, yeah... i did the same with my engine bay... had the same gross blue silicon vaccum lines all over the place... i replaced all of them with regular black lines from napa... basically, a $12 (or so) fix. lol
your valve cover doesnt look too bad though...a little orange-ish, but looks well done

No, the car was originally a tan interior. The only black interior available was from a manual window trim. That is why I'm reupholstering them and using an LE speaker cover. Just deciding on the speaker system to use.

Thanks for the tip I will do that next. Yeah the valve cover will be redone too. I will rewire and the engine to hide as much wires and hoses as I can. I did it to my Corrado before and I think it can be done with miata.
