    Hi there from Central Texas!

    Just scooped up a 1986 SVO in Pretty good shape. I had to trailer it home because it had been sitting in the garage for a good while. It ran ok, but has lots of exhaust leaks. I replaced the header, tires, and bled the brakes, and a few other things to get it going. I am looking forward to driving this thing, and contributing to the forum!

    Welcome! depending how long it was sitting, make sure you check inside the fuel tank for Rust. The ethanol in modern fuels has been wreaking havoc in cars that sit for extended periods.

    ^^+1,000,000! Our 86 is sporting a new tank/pump/sender/filter because of that swill. The injectors are going to Paul this weekend to get them back in shape.

    Nothing but C9 will go in it now.

    Oh, and welcome from the swamps of SE Texas!!
