Stats: 1985 Dodge Shelby Charger
|I've had this 85 Shelby charger since June of 1998. I bought
it for 800 dollars and then found out it had a blown head gasket.
I had never done any real work on engines or turbos, but I successfully changed the head gasket and put everything back to pretty much correct timing, so I'm pretty happy with that. I still have only driven it like 3 times out on a major road cause it wont pass inspection because the brake lights wont come on. Another really annoying thing is the gas gauge reads a quarter of a tank all the time. Other than that it's been a real fun car to work on, so much that I actually bought another 84 Shelby Charger for 300 bucks, supposedly all it needs is a new starter, we'll see.
