Re: What happened to your previous car...?
'74 Plymouth Scamp with a 318ci V8, and police package (posi traction). Timing change broke, and the engine lost compression. Screwed up the valves. Junked it in '86. I miss that car.
'86 Chevy Cavalier Z24 was Stolen in '92. I saw parts of her on different cars. My wheels ended up on a '89 Chevy Corsica [the '86 Z24 had unique wheels, and mine had a curb rash. I knew them right away.] My 2.8li V6 ended up in a Chevy Barreta I had the rocker cover painted blue, and silver, and I saw some punk kid working on the engine with his car jacked up. I asked him where he got the engine. He said some chop shop under the expressway. So, I found the shop, and had my father (a State Cop) sting the place! It took a few months, but they raided it! That was sweet. They had 6 stolen cars in the joint at the time. Mine was already long stripped for parts. In court one of the guys said that Z24s had tons of parts for 15 different Chevy cars, and they could get 10x as much for my car if they chopped it. I got the insurance money, and went without a car for a few years. I really didn't need one living in NYC.
'97 Chevy Malibu (first year they reintroduced the name plate). I still have her. She can sit for 3 months, and start on the first twist of the key. It a nice car with decent power for what she was. The V6 never felt like it was working hard to maintain 80MPH on the highway. I'll keep her for a few more months. Then I may sell her for what ever I can get. Or keep her as a station car.
