    Someone's going to go fast next year.....

    The forums are getting boring so I figured what the heck...

    So I have this SC here of unspecified origins, and it's going to get some updates between now and spring. I'll post pics as we go and let you guess whose it is.

    To start off with the car wasn't a dud but here's where we're going:

    Phase 1:

    Car drove in on it's own power but running poorly due to a bad vacuum leak. When you have a vacuum leak, and we all know how tough those are to find much less fix, so we decided to just pull the motor and upgrade.

    So motor is out and fully disassembled. Pics to follow.

    My junk's been "in progress" for about 6 years now so I'm not going to start stirring the pot about something that probably isn't going to happen this year. No, this car is actually happening now as we speak. Pics will be up tomorrow.

    I expect the project to take about 3 months to complete so I'll keep updating as we go. I'll tell you guys what is going into the car, you can guess how fast it's going to be.
