Yes, that's how the 88s looked. That's a first year car. They spent the next four years fixing screwups like that and then gave up.

Aren't the tyres fitted the wrong way round? Or, well, at least the one that can be seen in one of the photos?

I still say get the interior professionally cleaned, nothing serious, it may not look worth it cause it's a beater, but you will feel way better driving it and smelling it.

Also you need this bumper sticker

You know what that car is? Awesome.

Keep it even once you've got the Viper and make it your own.

Either that or do the intelligent thing and sell it, then buy something...good.

I was thinking a couple of hours of elbow grease would really bring that paint back to life.

Then I had a better idea. Want to double its value?

Fill the tank!

Even that doesn't work as the tank is leaking :lol:
And yes, check rotation marks on that tire.....right now, it is pushing water to the middle of the tire instead of outwards...

That's deliberate and cunning. Stops the tyre from catching fire with all that fuel leaking onto it. I think...... :dunno:

That has to be the worst looking interior I have ever seen, I can understand dirty, worn, cracked....but half of it seems to be bloody missing, how the hell did your dad manage that? :p

Still, for a free beater/learner.....You can't realy lose anything can you? Keep the rubber side at the bottom!

And you might want to rotate the tires. That front one is on backwards.

^That exactly :D
I used to like Corsicas when I was a kid, largely because of their name. Of course, at the time I didn't have the definition of "terrible car" in my lexicon :p

Anyway, Grats!

Hey, its a beater. Might as well do something funky with it.
