by the way i hate my boss

Can't get the 1st gen gt's out of my head, keeping looking around and i found this. http://seattle.craigslist.org/car/130272873.html

How hard is it to swap a auto to manual in a 1st gen?

holy fook...i'm gonna have to get that from you!!!!

hahaha...too my tax return isn't due for another week...i might have to look into it..hehe

tranny swaps not too hard. just need the GT Tranny & Axles (i believe), the clutch pedal assembly, and the master and slave cylinder, hard and soft lines I've got a clutch master that's still good...and I live in the tacoma area as well.

Daaaaaaaaaaamn! That doesn't look like a hatchback though, I thought only the hatchback's were turbo'd.... 87, thats a bit old, it would be interesting to see whats differen't between that and my 91....

If life were easy, everyone would do it.

well...the first one would be a better buy, since it doesn't say if there's body damage on it....the other one, well, looked like a dodge truck backed right into the rear 1/4, above the fenderwell. hehehe

but to have a Turbo 4WS 4dr 626 would be quite badass....now how many people on this site can say they have one of those? hehehe

I'm closer than you! It would be way easier to turbo my car than to make yours a 4 door.....

shoot...i'm thinking SWAP...get the 626 4WS Turbo, swap out the engine/atx from that, then swap in the engine/mtx from the wrecked MX6 GT that would probably be less than $1000 total. Then I can part the hell out of MX6

What color is the interior? Grey hopefully, and then you can give me a day to tear what I need out for a "brotha" discount flat fee....

werd...if this happens. I believe the 88 is blue..should have grey interior. because then i'll grab the headliner as well for me hahaha but if the wifey doesn't "allow" it to happen, that's just going to suck some ass.

Sweet man, I'm dead serious about that too. I'm gonna redo my interior in black/grey, so I'll need the interior peices that I don't think I can cover in vinyl from a grey doner car..... That would be fucking sweet!
