There is about $6500 difference between that one and the one I'm picking up.  Deal has been made though and now I have something to do this summer.

The worst performance mod is whatever you're limited to because you convinced yourself (or others) that anything bigger or faster was too extreme for a street car.

I'm blown away by how quick you have to jump on things that show up on Craigslist.   I was the second email response to his ad, but fortunately the first that actually called him.  I had to move fast to get it... Including a spur of the moment drive to St. Helens to check it out.

Once it get it back to the house the real fun begins!

It really depends sometimes...
With my 2332 it had been up for a while and I just happened on it.
I called him and verified he still had it.
Then after some deliberation I called and met him a week later.

I think that Bryan even shot him a low ball offer before I saw it....

Overdue update on this project... I am currently on sabbatical from work so I have lots of time to work on this.  Well aside from the massive honey-do list and my routine coffee shop stalking activities.

The PPO (previous-prior owner) thought it would be a good idea to cut a door into the drivers side.  I've spent the past week of so grafting the cut door back onto the body.  Yeah - first time doing fiberglass.

Aside from the door, I've also been patching up cracks, holes and pinholes in the body.  The windshield frame needed to be repaired as one side of the metal was broken on the side where it joins to the body.

I'm going with a metallic blue paint... Yeah rattle can - did you expect something different from me? 

The pan has a bus transmission and RGBs on it... Anyone have any experience with this kind of setup?  I was thinking about switching it over to a bug transmission.

If all goes to plan I will be painting this weekend.....
