A 323 update
The title and bill if sale showed up in the mail finally. I went and spoke to the DMV and as long as the car passes smog, I can fill out a form, pay registration, and the car will be Ca titled.(I thought it would be harder because DMV)
In hopes of passing smog even though it’s an 8v and I’m fairly sure CA got a 16v, Im replacing the spark plugs, plug wires, distributor cap/rotor, oil, fuel filter(I know some of that is irrelevant to smog)
The handling is very nice once I got over the amount of input the steering takes. Sidenote: These tires are junk. I took it on a drive through some of highway 36 (twisty). The tires were 70% when I started now they have about 40% life left. Granted that’s more my driving than the tires fault but they are really holding the car back. 155/70/13 is why, so it makes since.
Better rims and tire are on the list, which now consists of: Cv’s(ones torn), struts all round, rims/tires, and tune up stuff which I’ve done some of.
There’s also a pipedream list that involves protege motors, lightweight flywheels, and better brakes,
