Greetings! My name is Joe and I live in NJ. I had been looking for a while for an interesting car to restore and I found it in an 88 Plymouth Reliant wagon. I've always had an affinity for station wagons, so I've never had an American car before. My last three cars were a Volvo 850 Turbo wagon, a Subaru Impreza Outback and my current daily, a 2012 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen TDI. I've always liked k cars and cars from the 1980s in general. This one is in pretty good shape, with only bad rust in the passenger side rocker sill. The 2.2 has a blown head gasket and the 5 speed manual's shift cable is stretched out, but for $500, I'm happy. I'm about an hour away from yanking the head. I ran into some trouble with a bolt for the valve cover that would not move and someone had already rounded It off. I have a load of Parts already. Parts for this thing are cheap, especially when you work at an auto parts store.. the car came with some aftermarket 15-in wheels which don't really go nicely with the car but will probably handle better than the stock 14s. I already have new tires for them. The previous owner also transplanted front bucket seats from a Dodge Daytona, which are probably more comfortable than what was there. I also picked up at a garage sale a premium stereo that would have been in an 1986 Fifth Avenue. It'll replace the stock AM/FM it has now. I'm sure I'll have lots of questions going forward. Thanks in advance!
