    This is the most badass thing I've seen on Craigslist lately.

    Those look like some awesome projects. I've seen the 2.0L Hondas in the Mini's before.

    Fiat needs to go. No MGA. But I know a guy. I got a couple of Corvettes. And not enough shop space.

    I got a pump for the 911. Haven't had a chance to install it. If the CIS doesn't work its getting polaris throttle bodies and become a mule for a Speeduino board I have. If the CIS works I am just gonna do a standalone EDIS-6 or GM DIS coil pack with my own advance controller. The GM pickup wheel is easier to build, the Ford is marginally easier to write code for. When I was driving it setting the timing was always "meh thats kinda right" because the dizzy was a turd. Timing would bounce all over the place at idle and setting total advance was like a Meatloaf song. Plus spark quality even with a new good bosch coil was always ho hum so i suspect the CDI box was getting tired. Probably the giant electrolytic capacitor i suspect it has inside.

    The 124 needs to go, the 70 C10 stepside needs to go, a 66 plymouth two door hard top that needs to go, I have a grand cherokee to finish cutting up and hauling off, a regular cherokee rust bucket to scrap and i need to consolidate my square body GM truck stuff. I have a 3/4 ton body I will probably sell with an automatic pedal. Right now it has a SM465 and manual pedals in it that i need to save. This is stuff i am collecting to rebuild my crew cab square body chevy onto a LWB chassis with a shorty bed, straight shift, full floater 9 inch and one day big LS power.

    I got a 49 chevy fleetline that I am planning to transplant a 4.0 jeep motor, ax15 and grand cherokee dana 44 into. Rebuild stock front suspension, add bags, beretta rack and pinion and disc brakes and be done with that part. Car needs ALOT of bodywork but i bought it that way on purpose because most of the rusty stuff was gonna get cut off anyway.

    My collar may be a little frayed, and maybe I need a shoeshine. But nobody\'s got a mortgage on my soul. I own it. Free and clear. -Phil Lovecraft
