This is long overdue. I bought this car a couple of years ago when i had bought a major fixer upper house but as a car lover i just couldn't pass it up. Ive owned a bunch of cars and motorcycles prior to this (a dsm 2, 240sxs, 2, 70's novas a yamaha r6 yamaha xs650 etc. i had to sell my latest car the 90 240sx coupe to pay taxes on my newly acquired house but i still cruized on craigslist for fun and i came across this car on craigslist out of seattle. i vaguely knew of these cars from a super old sport compact car article back in the day and i decided to buy it.
here is the link to my intro and how the car looked when i bought it

the car pretty much sat as is for 2 years and After 3 years of house rebuilding i now live with my GF and our new amazing son. My house being rented out and her house having a carport has got me squeezing in car time as much as possible (those who have kids know what im talking about).
but now ive been improving things and working on the car while enjoying what you guys are doing on the forum so i decided its time to share my trials and tribulations with my csm project before i get so far i ahead i cant relay my experience in an accurate fashion. ok so anyways here is my 1989 Colt GT and im located in the Pacific Northwest in little old Astoria OR (home of the goonies).
