Not bad looking for 22-23 year old vehicles.
My 90s fleet consists of 2 96 Z26 Berettas, one 97 Saturn wagon, and a 94 Lumina mini van.
I think about what newer cars I might want to buy but then I find, many of them have problems.
So, I just keep fixing what I got.

Good I'm glad I'm not the only one with this madness.
I see it exactly the same as you. The only issue I cannot avoid, being a rust belt dweller, is rust. The blazer is about gone saddly, I have been driving it for 16yrs. Popular opinion seems to be that those were junk, but its been nothing but good to me.

Yep, dang rust never sleeps.
My 96 Z has rust coming through the rear quarter panel.
The second 96 has some creeping around the bumper covers.
I had to fix the sub-frame on the mini van awhile back.
Couple weeks ago had the rear brake line rust through on the Saturn.
But when I was a teen, it seemed anything near 100k miles and 10 years old wasn't on the street anymore.
But then they didn't cost $40,000 new.
BTW, your an electronics tech, so you know ohms law? Electronics is/was a hobby of mine.

91 Beretta and 94 Z71 here, as well as a mullet Camaro. Get them from down south so you don't have to worry about rust!

Yes, worked w/Ohms law a time or two. I work with a group of engineers designing PCB's for garage door openers and accessories.

I totally dig the Camaro, I want to spend some time going through your thread on it.
