I have an XR (have had one since about 1990). I live in Sugar Land. Its been mostly in the garage, but I have been driving it quit a bit, of late. I am exercising it before getting ready to drive it to Carlisle this June.

My name is Richard

Why do all XR owners in Texas have such few post count. Did everyone buy their car at once?

It is not a running car, i need to pull the engine, previous owner said that he parked it, where it sat for 10+ years, after a mechanic told him he had blow-by on one of the cylinders, i've yet to try to spin the engine to do leakdown and compression tests.

I'm still around and about to start a nice upgrade on my '86 . I saw that 85 on CL and was pretty tempted to get it...then I realized mine needed the attention more than another project!.

Spring/The Woodlands area.

I have plenty of parts and technical information if anyone needs them...and may be able to offer some help too!

Nick.
