Here's my preliminary checklist of what I plan on/ want to do with the car.

Need to do
-replace side mirrors, there are none.
-confirm gas leak and repair if necessary
-alignment. replace possible bent tie-rod.
-replace valve seals
-Seal up power steering pump leak
-replace drivers seat or, if possible, replace the railing that's snapped
-fix rear driver and passenger side windows

Based on everything I've read the car should be getting 15 city mpg and about 21 highway mpg. Right now I'm getting about 10 city/ 14hwy. If I'm not near where it should be I'll have to continue troubleshooting. It may be time to lap the cylinders and put new rings in. (I really hope not, fortunately it does drive like it's getting good compression.)

Want to do
-Swap for a 3.55 rear end
-replace speedo gear afterwards. (new gear should be red 21 teeth)
-replace 2v heads for 4 valve heads from either a police interceptor, an svt mustang, or a marauder
-figure out why the hell the floor vents don't work. (probably a bad vacuum line, but I don't hear any hissing.)
-Replace the straps that pull the doors shut.
-add supercharger
-find the button that makes the gas cover pop out. (right now i have to short two pins together with a key)
-stereo?
-illegal AF window tint
-paint, try to find a color which doesn't make other people question whether I'm a cop at night.

(car has digital gauge cluster so there may not be a speedometer gear.)
