The owner of this car bought it as a winter car for himself in MN. It was...."solid". Well sorta! It was solid enough to keep your feet dry and warm in the harsh MN winters.

The old M30 was VERY tired. Some days it would take over a minute for the oil pressure light to go out.

So what's the best thing to do?

Swap in an LS of course!
