So. In the latest in a long string of questionable decisions, I've decided to turn my (apparently) unsellable Alfa 164 into a Chump.

If nothing else it gives me a (really poor) excuse to do a full rebuild on the 198k mile motor, which I've been wishing I could do since before I bought it in the first place! I'm going to attempt to document progress in the build diaries (minus all the cheaty things of course ), so please take the time to mock me mercilessly!

as soon as you do something irreversible, someone will come out of the woodwork and say, "Oh, I would have bought it if it was still stock."

The project will go great, and the first time you'll take it on track, you'll say to yourself, what a great car. Then during your first Chump race, you'll blow the transmission, and realize they are impossible to find.

How much were you selling it for?

Trade for a Peugeot?

Then you yank the engine out and build a locost.

All depends on next year's "values" list... this year it's a "Basic $500 Car" on their list, so I'm counting on there being room under the 2014 budget!
