Re: Hello from MA!
Welcome to the Club, Justin. Nice ride and looks to be a good deal.
Best investment for you would be a Haynes manual for the model. It will show you 'how' the car works, as the Owner's Manual shows you how to 'work' the car.
I see the A/C lines have been cut, so in Mass, you may not need A/C.
Check to see if on the inner fenderwell behind the pass tire, if any previous owner hole sawed a 4 inch diameter hole for access to #8 spark plug rather than either jack up the car and access the plug from underneath or use really skinny arms and get it from the top - might be the reason for the removal of the A/C hoses and the like.
Suggestion - add some coolant to the reservior. There always should be some coolant in it. As the engine expands and contracts, fluid will rise and fall and this is a good thing, keeps coolant in the water jackets for better cooling than air.
Another tip , look at the upper radiator hose for a date code, ie, '2Q92' meaning second quarter of 1992. Signifies when the hose was made. Looking at the spring clamps, hose and clamps may be original equipment. As far as looking, look at all the hoses and plastic lines their entire length and replace any hose/tubing having cracks. You don't want any vacuum leaks upsetting the engine fuel mixture. The fuel hoses to the right of the alternator might need changing.
