Lol. That's not a farm machine. That's for construction, earthmoving, and landscaping.

I figured as much but I know nothing about heavy machinery like that. I lived in Idaho for a while and would help a family friend put in the big *** irrigation pipes on farmers plots and would occasionally talk to the farmers about how much their new tractor/hay baler would cost... Good lord they will be in debt the rest of their lives.

July, August and September are just too busy for me to work on the car. This time of year tends to tie up all my cash as well. It has been an unusually crazy Summer.

So ... who will finish first? I was putting my money on you given A) your general initiative, and B) Temperate FL winters.

I am so close to having more time to work on the car. I can already taste the metal shavings.

Wow,

Started reading this thread and realized it was from 2010. First page says "won't have results for about a year" so I skipped ahead to page 10 circa 2013... still not finished! Skip to page 15, earlier this year and read from there up to present.

In other words "in for results and damn glad I didn't see this thread almost half a decade ago"

This thread is so old that people were still using carburetors when it started.

Was excited when I saw this thread was bumped. Was disappointed when I actually opened it up and saw it wasn't an update.

Troy has almost got all of the weight out of the car he's looking to get out of it at this point.

Well...

He started spending money to expand his business.

He met a special girl.

They got engaged.

He remodeled his house.

They got married.

They are expecting a child.

Nobody knew when this thread started that the 11's mentioned in the title was referring to years to complete the build...

I'm not sure what I'll do if your miata moves under its own power. It'll be like seeing a unicorn

So then did the 9's refer to him finishing when the kid was 9?

I probably deserve the lashing. A lot happened in the last couple of years. So many distractions.
