I know what happened with the top, but what's with the front end?

I bought it like that for $1400...with a torsen, and the white hardtop is my spare, lol. The green car is still mint but needs paint for the new HT and the FM hood.

This is parked in the garage since early june, and until I get my turbo back:

today:
brake ducts

tomorrow:
new oil cooler mount

sunday:
bleed brakes

next month:
new hot parts

september:
streets flowing with the blood of non-believers / my turbo stops falling off

that shitbox is so fucked-up. The motor is hurt enough that when you stomp on the gas, it just gets loud, it doesn't go anywhere. I'm holding out for a cheap 99 motor. 70% leak in #3...lol.

I have 2 sets of those wheels in the garage, but I need to put one bronze and one nickel 6ul on it and send the pics to emilio for his site. Actually, I bet you could put the nickel wheels on it and it would look "good" by some standard.

I'll take that 03 bottom for the right price, then hold out for a cheap 99 head. I need something in the garage though for when this car dies...which won't be long. Maybe a trade for my old begi manifold and dp?

Your begi mani wont do me any good. Once I know the mileage on the 03 I'll pm you a price. I should know in about a 1/2 about the other 99.
