Hi Folks, Mitch here.

I've been a member for some time just not active lately. I'm using a new name because I can't remember my old password. I've tried to retrieve it but the retriever doesn't recognize either of my email accounts. 

Anyway, I recently acquired Obscurity's '81 SX/4 Sport.

Here's a pic of the day I picked her up.

Thanks for the welcome and welcome for the thanks!

The car started pretty easily for having sat for a couple years. The alternator needs a kit or replacement. 16 volts is a tad high. Then she needs her clutch master replaced and with some minor bodywork she should be road worthy!! After the, (relatively minor), mechanical,electrical and body issues are dealt with she will be getting a new suit and tie.

I'm torn about whether to drive her this winter or keep her away from the salty roads we have here.

BTW, can anyone guess who my favourite American is by looking at the pic?

You wouldn't believe the parts I have. I could start a sanctuary. Haha.

Always interested in wagons. I've had three so far. Three SX/4's also. And don't forget the '87 sedan.
