    Original ARA AC, 1.9L CIH.

    Found her at a classic car shop in my town, the brakes were completely locked down, timing was off by 999 degrees , every single rubber hose was destroyed, there were vacuum leaks everywhere and I had no idea what a distributor was. Over the few months I have had Mira, she has taught me so much about cars and that with a little bit of creativity you can "fix" or "improve" just about anything mechanical.

    Modifications

    Put #70 racing oval decals on the hood, sides, and rear. Repainted with black racing stripes that curve and go down to the doors instead of the rear like normal stripes.

    Made the package tray into an easily accessible storage space.
