I can post pics of the interior later, I'll have to take some. The car was bought new by the brother of a friend of mine who gave it to him when he went to college. He sold it to me two years ago for $500. From what he said, its the original engine, transmission, no 'major' work done. I just overhauled the cooling system about 10,000 miles ago and installed a new valve cover gasket. I was surprised to see how good the top end looked. I've replaced various parts as they've needed it, but nothing I'd consider major. I replaced the majority of suspension parts when I lowered it last year, and a lot of those looked original. It's been serviced religiously every 5000 miles with Castrol Syntec 5-30.
This is the only pic I have right now. I'll try to remember to take some more tomorrow:

Excellent news! 5-spd or automatic? I'm waiting for it to warm up before I do the vac leaks and the suspension.

Grats! I'm hoping that mine makes it another 7k miles to 200k without any major issues.
