    My new work car. 1989 MX-6 80,000 miles

    Seems to run perfect. It will need a lot of maintenance work, all fluids changed, timing belt kit, outer axle boots torn. But the biggest problem I found is mice that made it their home. The elderly woman that owned it drove about 1,000 miles in the last 10 years.
    So I first found a nest in the air cleaner. Not much of an issue, but I removed the HVAC fan because of noise, and found a nest clogging it. So I will be pulling out the dash and doing a thorough cleaning.
    I will be doing all the work myself so it won't be expensive, just time consuming.

    Wow that is an awesome find. The exterior looks to be in pretty good shape at least!

    I am still putting things back together, but finally pulled the dash and cleaned the duct work. The main clog (from the mouse nest debris) was at the A/C evaporator coil. Now all clean. The fan blows strong now and heat and A/C (r12) still work.
