As I said somewhere else, you did good sir. Good looking car and not one on every corner, IE vette, challenger what ever. Hope to see more pictures of it as time goes by. I love your design/modification ideas. You are the first person to ever (IMHO) to ever make a white car something I would want.

Yes. Which in my opinion contributed to its early demise.

Its a very nice car that needs an engine swap. That was my only point.

Yea, but that's like saying driving it contributed to its early demise. A faulty chain is a faulty chain.

Car needs to have that engine inspected and cleaned, reassembled, and then put back in the car. LOL

The car may actually be more salable with stock components Or not.

The custom parts may be worth more individually than as part of the car. Or not.

Always a decision to be made when trying to sell a customized car, and it is rarely black-and-white.

Oh but this one is VERY black and white...LOL

Oh, wait, you weren't talking about the colors there were you?

I think Hoosier's plan is to sell it and the closer to stock it is, the easier it will be to sell I suppose. Since he is our resident "OEM Parts Distribution Center" I'd guess he'd put it back to stock and sell it then sell the other parts as people want them. Some folks can't sit on parts like Hoosier can (or at least does). Thank god for him...Don't know what this community would do without guys like Hoosier.

After a 1200 round trip the car is here and just waiting for a spot in my shop to begin. As has been noted I will be returning it to stock or at least close to. I have a new engine ready to go in and Elf was kind enough to reflash the ECM back to the GMPP tune that he had installed in it. I am not going to remove things like the shocks and wheels but the some of the other items will be available in time and I will post what I have to offer then. Some items have been inquired about and those individuals will get a chance before I list them here. I will most likely pull the head from the engine and see what damage was done and at that point offer the complete engine for sale if anyone is interested. As many of you know Elf had a lot done to it and there are a number of upgraded parts that are most likely still usable. There is a lot I don't know about this engine so if you are interested you can go to Elf's garage and see the list of upgrades. He did offer to answer any questions anyone had about it but I ask you to only contact him if you are truly interested in acquiring the engine as it is. This is a very nice car that may have been "upgraded" but was taken exceptional care of and will make someone a nice car when it is finished.

You mean Robotech wasn't waiting on your front porch when you got home?


Yes, feel free to PM me and my garage is accurate in regards to all the mods, so that should answer a lot of questions.

Hoosier, if it's actually easy to repair, I don't want to know.
