I purchased this car new. It was rear-ended in 1983 and was nicely repaired. While in shop it became second car and was driven fewer and fewer until the turbo seized. I installed a rebuilt turbo which blows oil and engine smokes badly. I have new turbo and am planning on a restoration.

Personal Notes

How time flies. I cannot find tires of the original size. If anyone can help on whether wider/higher profile tires will work or who the best parts sources are, your input will be appreciated.
