To me.....McDonald's is a drug.
yes and it is a 1980 non-prolink naked model.
Pardon my ignorance, but could you clear up for me what a prolink is?
Also, that 2002 isn't really tickling my fancy. Needs paint either way, saying paint is original in that shape is like saying tires are original from 1973 too. Who cares, needs more money.
Plus e30 bottlecaps? Ewwwwwwwww

In the world of 2002s, original paint color, even if the car itself needs a repaint, has value. There are some colors that are so rare here in the US that there are less than 100 made and those cars usually command a premium. As the 2002s are Monocoque (the front inner sheet metal is part of the unibody structure) to change color on one means that the engine bay will forever be a dead give away unless you strip the car down to literally nothing to repaint it. So conceivably if this were an original paint car, and it were a rare color (which it is moderately rare) you could get away with just an exterior cheap and cheerful respray and have a really nice car. If the color was changed at one point then the whole thing just gets harder.Also, that 2002 isn't really tickling my fancy.

Shut your whore mouth.Plus e30 bottlecaps? Ewwwwwwwww Everything original my butt.
The back spacing and wheel well is kind of a tough thing to fit wheels into unless you are willing to spend for aftermarket wheels and then you are looking at limited selection of 4x100 wheels with a Center Bore/Hub Diameter of 57.1mm....so minilites, some rotoforms, and that's pretty much it. I think the largest tire you can get into a 2002 is 195/55-15 without lip rolling or body mods.14x6 et35 3-series '84-'91 "bottlecap" alloy. Widely avalible used, try craigslist.org, or a local wrecking yard. These fit very well and are considered to be a good cheap way to get "modern" rubber on a 2002. There are many brands of tires available in this size, in MANY different compounds from El-cheapo to gummy race rubber.
Tires: 185/65-14, or 195/60-14.
I suppose not but there is as much bad info out there as there is good info. You can't just grab any old honda civic wheel and throw it on. BBS and 92s and minilites are ok I guess in the same way belly buttons are ok. Revolution 4 spokes, Alpina e30 wheels, and you won't see yourself coming or going. Also, ever notice how most of the 2002s that run bbs wheels have fender flares? hmmmBuying wheels isn't scary in 2015. Its small and 4x100. Enkei 92s or some BBS rs are common enough and will fit. Fender roller is in stock and hubcentric rings are $4.
You have to really spend time with these cars to truely appreciate what an absolute pain in the ass they are.Also, I see what you are saying about the paint. And that green is sweet.
That would go nicely with my '88 FZR1000... I'm not driving to Buffalo though. Rumor has it there's still snow on the ground thereJag or someone in Bob Dog's clan should jump on this:
