I just picked up my new daily driver from PA this past weekend. Drove it all the way home (966 miles) on a bad headgasket. I didn't have any overheating issues, and it only used a little bit of oil. Definitely a bad HG though, as I did a compression test this morning, and it read 150/60/30/60 I had a little bit of oil mixing with the coolant that bubbled to the top of the radiator, but other than starting hard, it has not had any issues. I will be starting on the HG today most likely. Should be some fun there. 264,000 miles, original clutch, and on its second timing belt. This car is a champ.
