1999 SL1
Default What's got two thumbs and just bought himself a 1999 SW1?

THHIIIIIIIIIIISSSSS GUUUYYYY!!!!

Got it for $1000 on Kijiji. Nice guy, got it from his client. Originally wanted $500 but replaced the battery and everything worked, hence the price bump.

198773 km (123511 miles), sills free of rust, always parked indoors, only driven to the grocery store. Could use some cleaning, buffing and the usual culprits (ECTS, valve cover gasket, thermostat etc.) but it's in suprisingly good shape.

No power windows, locks, mirror or sunroof... just a basic wagon. Automatic transmission still feels alright, so slamming yet. Exhaust sounds a bit loud.

And now, some pics:

That's awesome - I'm looking for something like this to do a retirement drive through the southern US this winter. Sleep in the back type trip. If the airconditioning works, I might be interested

Just did a piston soak with some Marvel Mystery Oil, I actually let it soak for a few days. Replaced the plugs in there with some NGK BKR4ESA-11 plugs. Ones taken out pictured below in engine order (1 2 3 4) :
