My 1980 210

I might as well share my thread over here. Bought it in January, took it apart in April and now been driving it for the last week. A15 has been rebuilt and it drives nice. Idles a little rough though. Fixed the radiator. New starter. 169,000 on the car itself.

Currently cleaning up some spectres to put on it.

Looking for 3 more center caps like this.

Car looks great! All those detail things like painting the engine bay really paid off. Those Spectres are going to be a nice touch.
When I was 15 my dad bought a yellow '80 (4dr) for me to drive. He figured I couldn't screw up too bad in a $400 car with 70hp. I did a bunch of detail work and drove the wheels off it. After a year or so it was sold for $1500. My commission = $0. Thanks for the memories.

FWIW, we don't mind not having to link to other sites for a build thread. I know it takes a couple extra minute but we don't mind seeing all the great pics and history right here ;) . Keep us updated on the progress.
When the only tool you have is a hammer every problem starts to look like a hippy.
