I know you got law school and all that, but would have some time for body and paint, nothing so extravagant, once you finish the Vette?
For sheezy sleezy. I'm head over heels for this local chick right now, so I'm sure I'll be up here every weekend anyways. And with 3 or 4 guys sanding and no LSATs to study for, it should go quick.

You got time in the next day or two to go take a look these things? Pics can be funny. I also got a blaster attachment for my compressor. We could ghetto media blast it right in my driveway.

A SBC in a Mustang II. No way.

I like the Mazda with a SBC.
Ok, lets find a body first.:thumbs_up


I have a bunch of small block parts- even an extra dual quad intake. I have 5 or six extra set of heads. I have a bunch of shit Chevy parts laying around.

I even have a 454 short block --but that is going to be hard to talk me out of.


I've built hundreds of SBCs over the years. I maybe can help there.

Darlene has a 1990 Toyota Celica GT in her garage that needs to be removed. She has got an offer of $200 for it. We can talk her out of it. BUT, its a complete vehicle and it needs a LOT of work.


Just throwing it out there.

I'm trying to talk her into getting rid of the 95 T-bird too.

I am sure I am a little biased but I would like to see something done with a Mustang II. Nobody likes those things and they really are never seen. I think that doing something that would gets peoples attention. IE a car not really coveted going fast would be pretty cool. Drop a TT V6 in it. That would be fun. Smog should not be a big issue.

I am down with any of the builds and would more than willing to put in a little money and lots of man hours to help.

You silly goose, this is for building a Motorgen project car, not helping user's build their project car. Unless you want to sign over the Evo motor and Starion.

When you guys talk about RX-7s, what years are your referring to? This looks like a pretty clean 1979 that's locally available for something roughly in our price range (though the 240 and 280 for $800 still has my attention.)
