My Bug is still ongoing and should be back on track now that I've found a new bodyman who might actually get the paint job done. I'll sure be glad to get all the interior and other parts back in the bug and out of my basement. I'm hoping to have it rolling by May long weekend. Pretty sad that I've had it for over two years and still haven't been able to drive it. Check out the link in my signature.

My 5.0 has been torn apart for basically 2 years now. I redid the suspension and did the Cobra brake swap in the winter of '07/spring '08 and was able to drive the car one time in late September but it was a chore as the brake booster was leaking and I had no power brakes. I put like 10kms on the car in '08. Then I bouhgt my turbo kit and completely re-did the front half of the car on the winter of '08. The car is back together now and looking pretty sweet. I took a very short test spin today and the car is unreal. I can't wait for a few more weeks when the weather starts to improve and I'll throw 6mos on insurance on it.

95 Trans Am has been off the road for 3.5 years I think.
Just ordered a short block to put under the top end I bought a while ago, so I should be starting the assembly of the new motor soon.

Oh my where do I start....

1. My 65 Nova SS... which needs umm, everything (seriously, only about half the original sheetmetal will remain, everything and I mean everything else needs to be done) but I've finally started working on it...
2. The wife's 97 Impreza which still needs paint and a few random bits.
3. Cleaning up her old 92 Civic so we can sell it...
4. The Envoy needs the 20s put on and I still want to fab an intake, e-fan setup, and catback...
5. My car trailer is getting new fenders, wiring/lights, and maybe some paint that isn't flatblack.

Don't get me started on the house... kitchen floors, granite tile counters, another slate walkway, and at least one bathroom is going to get gutted and redone this year.

You could try throwing money into the water. It's practically the same thing as owning a boat.

My Volvo 242 has been in progress a really long time. Especially since I stopped earning decent money. 5 years and counting.

My project has been sitting for far too long. But Sixthgear was kind enough to help me get started again last night by helping drop the transmission. Out with a twin disc, in with an organic street disc.

Oh, I happened to find a couple of spare parts that might need installing:
