Here is all the stuff I am currently or will soon be scrapping to open up a little more of my $2012 budget. All are 'best offer' unless otherwise noted.

All this stuff is in Evansville, Indiana.

1997 Lincoln Continental, minus all the parts that make the front wheels turn. Body is in reasonably good shape. See the Craigslist Ad: http://evansville.craigslist.org/pts/2771334739.html

1.6 CVH 4-cylinder from 1986 Ford Escort, with collection of carbs, minus oil pan. Previous owner told me it was a rebuilt motor with 46k miles on the rebuild, but had no documentation to back it up. Runs OK. Burns more fuel than I would expect it to, so something might not be exactly right. Moves the car along pretty good though for a CVH motor, and fires up with just a bump of the key.

1986 Ford Escort "L" Interior. It is in surprisingly good shape, blue. Dash has bad cracks. Tore the headliner getting it out. Seats and carpet are really nice though. Has all the cargo cover bits in tact.

Rims and tires for 1986 Ford Escort- tires all look 90%+ tread.

Side and rear glass for 1986 Ford Escort, rear has defrost.

I would consider it a personal favor if you would throw a stick on dynamite in the Lincoln.

Wait. You have a Lincoln body and an Escort engine? Are you stuffing a Lincoln engine into an ESCORT??

I don't think that would be "stuffing." An Escort CVH into a Lincoln would be the proverbial "hot dog down a hallway."

Um, no. He's selling the Lincoln body, which means he's keeping the engine. He's selling an Escort engine, which means he's keeping the body. Hence, Lincoln engine in Escort body.

Yes, Lincoln 4.6 modular in back of Escort, Contour Zetec in the front. Don't tell me why it WON'T work, I ain't listening.

Sounds awesome. BTW: nobody on here is going to tell you it won't work. We just want you to film it because success or failure, it'll be spectacular.

Clearly what is needed when you have a 8 cyl in the rear is 4 more cyl up front.
12 cyl total.

MOST IMPRESSIVE
Plans are to go for The ToC (Trifecta of Crap) and beyond. I applaud you!

For the record, this is what we did to the last '86 Escort to cross us. And it's only getting more obsurd. We won't be happy until the entire car is made of engine.

I don't know what I'm more amazed by: Your give-nay-damn attitude or that you think anyone here would tell you why it won't work!

Good luck to you sir. +1 on video.

The front is engine, the back is engine, even the doors are engine!

Careful when you sit down, though - that's engine too.
