    Alpine CM 3907 OEM optional digital cassette player
    HONDA Equalizer from 86 Accord
    14.5" Classic Nardi wood grain wheel
    Wood grain shift knob
    Wagon Pro bars
    Passenger side mirror
    OEM seat under-tray
    KYB GR-2 shocks
    Vacuum line tuck
    Weber 32/36 carb swap; devaced
    Pegasus Racing Synchronous throttle linkage kit
    Custom exhaust
    Custom 4-1 header
    Holley fuel pressure regulator
    Automatic choke
    Quarts Jeco dash clock

    Here it is the night I brought it home.... got it for myself as a Christmas gift.


    Future plans:

    custom rear springs
    new rear shocks
    manual AWD engagement conversion
    bushings

    And now on to what HAS been done to this little old wagon.

    After just the first day out on the road I knew these would not be enough for this old wagon.



    And the car had a huge whole in the floor that I patched

    those NEW OLD struts haha
    Stainless steel braided and Teflon coated brake lines

    found this cool blanket for $4 at the GOODWILL!
    the seat is still in great condition I just like the feel it gives the car.


    sanded the lettering on my wheels.


    found a big wood grain trucker shift knob, thought it fit well considering how often you have to shift an old underpowered car with short gears like this one. lol

    (catch my little airline JD bottle cap/ radio volume dial)?

    Re: Highly modified 1987 RT AWD

    Last week I had to patch up my old driver seat. I was tired of sitting on an ugly seat cover.
    So I laid down some iron-on denim patches for real strength.



    and covered them in stitched plaid shirt that I cut up w/ real working storage pocket.

    Where did you get those stickers? And looks good
    Alone in a crowd, but we're still standing strong
    With X'ed up fists and sing alongs
    Times like these are what we live for
    These days are more than we'd ever hoped for

    They were reproduced at a local vinyl shop.

    Re: Highly modified 1987 RT AWD

    I finally got my KYB GR-2s...
    This is the third set of shocks that has been on this car in like 2 months.

    Funny thing is, I bought and installed those old Gabriel's that were brand new in the box. But definitely seemed to have been sitting in a store for 25 years judging by the amount of dust on the boxes. Needless to say that over that 25 years the shocks had completely leaked down and were blown before I received them.


    so I slapped the KYB set on with some bump stops that I fab'd up.
    Boy what a difference!
    Now she rides like a Cadillac.
    (Special thanks to 85wagogo for guiding me in right direction. Not even KYB knew that these shocks fit our cars when I called them.)
