I always thought this car had two wheels in the junkyard when I bought her. She burned oil, had gaping holes in the dashboard, had illegal tints, came with beat TL rims on three different types of tires, and all of the lights were illegal. I know you painted most of the car, and much more, I'm sure. This car looking good at three-hundred-thousandish miles is no accident.
I keep forgetting to look at that odometer reading in "the file"

Getting close on the odometer, break 200k on Friday!

Yeah, a/c problem is a small crack at bottom of condenser opposite side of unit from the stop valve (I think driver's side if remembering correctly.) last time I got a condenser it was for the sedan resurrection; bought the "proper" replacement from Radiators 'R Us. We're waiting to see how fast condenser loses refrigerant whether to use a black magic stop leak additive or just replace unit. So, I'll be driving it until one day I'm sweating bullets. Guess I'll have to post some info request on the latest greatest recommendation from the community.

Congrats Eric! I'm sitting at 299,567.1 miles on my sedan and my coupe is at 232,992 out in the parking lot at the office. I'll hit 233,000 about 3/4 of the way home from work today.

Thanks all! The coupe's been quite a ride. Not too shabby after a long hard winter:

In case anybody is interested, I'm using the "Handy Photo" app to edit the license plate out of the image.
