    Well I just got the 90XR7 on the road last week, but before that it was last on the road in 07. The suspension could use a full rebuild, thereís no radio in it, the sunroof doesnít work, the interior lights donít work, the power locks donít work, the passenger window doesnít work, it needs brakes which will probably turn into a 93+ spindle and PBR swap, and the tune needs to be dialed in. So more than likely Iíll be taking the 97 again, since that one needs nothing.

    It was kept in a barn for 10 years, then outside on the side of my shop for the last 2. The car is everything I wanted though, black on black XR7 5-speed with cloth interior and a sunroof, so I'll work through the issues with it. Its up and running with a fresh motor now and I've been driving it the last few days, so its just all the little BS stuff needed now.

    David,
    Are you doing it yourself with friends or having it done by someone else?

    I need to reinstall my recently coated White Lightning coated headers on my 92 and then drive it. Plan B, drive my 95 5 speed.

    not much to do here

    I got to put my engine back into my GT350 and throw on a new set of tires just to make it safe for the trip. Hope I can get hat done sometime soon here and get a few miles on it before I hit the road.. The winter weather has got to get in line with my plans to get this all done....Rich
    Too many cars,too little time to drive them. Anything less than 500 cubes is a small block. If you slow down in life you will get run over..
