Hi All,

I'm Ben from the maryland suburbs of DC (live in MoCo, work in PG). I co-own/co-run Proteus Bicycles in College Park, and certainly consider myself more of a bicycle person than a car person. I have long been fascinated with reading build threads including many I've read on the GRM forums, and frankly I find there're a lot more interesting car/truck build threads than bicycle build threads. I also do my all my own maintenance on my old ford Ranger (about the simplest vehicle to maintain I can think of) and the basic stuff on family members' vehicles, brakes and oil changes. But recently I've been asked to help with a bigger issue on an in-law's car, and I think I'll start a new thread for advice on that shortly.

Hi, I'm a longtime lurker and finally decided to create a profile and join the forum. I started racing Lemons about 6 years ago in a MR2, which we built a boat around (M-Ark-2) and then later it became a Ferarri/Lambo 50/50 down the middle. I like underpowered cars that handle, but got tired of replacing the engine, so switched to Miatas. I currently have a 1993 Miata street car and a 1994 Miata endurance race car.

My day job is technical writing for big software companies, but I used to moonlight as a motorcycle journalist and editor for Moto-Euro magazine. I have a weakness for vintage motorcycles and there's a 1974 Moto Guzzi V7 Sport in my living room. I also build boats, DIY car parts, and other stuff. When not building or racing vehicles, I'm into traditional archery and spearfishing.

Long time lurker as I love the vast differences in projects and weird stuff. I use to read the magazine in my teen age years (20 some years ago). Theses days I mostly just try to keep my small fleet of junk on the road as wife, kids, and my job keep me busy. 

I’ve owned 60’s to 2000’s American cars and have been on a euro kick for the last 10 or so. My current stable is

08 Mitsubishi Raider 4x4

2012 VW GTI

07 Nissan versa

1989 Vw Jetta

1982 Vw rabbit

1962 mercury Monterey 

More then likely I’ll just lurk with the occasional post as the wealth of knowledge here is greater then my own.

I've been lurking around for a few years now, but this is my first post. 

I love build threads, and I don't remember what brought me here, but I suspect it was a Dusterbd 'drive-a-beater' build.  Maybe it was Mazdeuce?  Doesn't matter.  I love GRM and it's inhabitants.  Suits my nature.

I'm embarking on my first project, and I'm incredibly excited.  Especially since I have essentially ZERO experience in wrenching.  My primary skills are attention to detail, obsessive thinking, and an unwillingness to throw money at problems.  My other skill is electronics.  I work in the AV industry, and spent many years in the 12v business (car audio/security/etc.).

It's lucky that I am not intimidated by 12v wiring and ruined interiors and crappy old cars.  My new project?  C4 Corvette.

I'll post a build thread soon.

 

hello, bubba.

1993 Mustang notch (CAM build)

1980 Triumph TR8 (GT1/CP, 1 of 8, maybe for sale)

Hello all!

Long, long, long-time lurker here and on many different forums for the past 10 or so years but have never posted a single thing.  Seems crazy I know, but on all the forums I've visited I have always found some reason or other not to post. Till today of course. 

Anyway, I plan to start a few "build" threads on here to try to document a little more of my automotive insanity.  Current fleet includes a 2000 Mazda Miata, 2008 e88 BMW 135i, and a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with plans to add at least one more come this fall.  I've owned all sorts of vehicles which I have done a terrible job of recording my ownership of, mainly BMW's, Jeeps, and Mercedes'.

Well ok, i just joined to post some info, but been a 'reader' for sometime.

My current build (well I have many in progress..) is Project Audacious, a mid-engine V8 Corvair...with Porsche 944 suspension and Audi 4.2 V8,

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6SsUwqPqGk&t=78s

Bought the corvair for $300, sold off $600 in parts from it,

bought the 944 for $400, sold off $800 in parts, got another 944 for free,

Bought the 4.2 for $200 and got two transaxles with it. 

 

I also have a 74 Porsche 914 I bought for $200 and today I am disassembling a 2002 VW Passat  I picked up for $150 that is going to donate a lot of parts

to the 914 Project, I was describing the engine to a buddy of mine, and he called it a Weird 8

In reply to nimblemotorsports :

welcome, fellow mid-V8 Corvair builder!  i toyed with the idea of BMW M62 power (4.4L, 282hp, aluminum block and heads), but decided to go with an almost-single-donor concept using a '94 Corvette for front suspension, engine, cooling system, and most of rear suspension.  i'm adapting an Audi 01x 6MT box and building a rear subframe to react the lateral suspension forces.

Thank you for welcoming new members warmly. We are so happy to have found this forum site where people with the same interest gather and converse online. A pretty reliable site to find cars and parts for sale. It has vast topics to read, respond and follow.

Hey guys. I'm just gonna go by my screen name for now if that's OK? Found this site about a week ago and decided to sign up hoping I might get a few leads or suggestions. I'm finally getting around to a project I've wanted to do for over 10 years; a mid-engine AM coupe. Here's what I have and what I'm looking to do. Turn my 2002 Stratus 3.0L 5-speed R/T coupe into a mid-engine V-6 twin turbo driver & weekend corner carver. Trying to stay as much Mopar as possible. I have no idea where to look here for starters and who to ask for advice. What I do know is that the front sub-frame of a 1999 Intrepid 3.5L ES should relocate right behind the drivers seat starting where the fuel tank is. What forum should I post, in detail, what I have/found/want to do? I've noticed quite a few posts are from the UK here so I'm not sure if I can get help for starters, although any additional knowledge of cars goes a long way into weeding out possible issues down the road. Thanks for reading this rant. Currently on a 48 hour day for the last 6 months.

Hi, new here.  Long time lurker myself.  

Been around drag racing a lot in the 90's and 00's, but I've always been a sports car racing fan at heart.  Life is getting settled down and looking to get into amateur sports car racing, ChampCar ( maybe)  and NASA HPD.

Howdy!

New to the forums, obviously, as a poster as well as a reader. My current stable is an '07 GTI with DSG that I've tracked at a few HPDE events at Roebling and a '13 Honda CB500F (first year) that has not seen a track. 

I'm finally at a point where I am capable of taking on a mild car project and I am a bit undecided on what car to start with. I like the idea of an '88-'92 Fox Mustang but I also like the looks of a Fiero better, and the mid-engine doesn't hurt. 

With luck there wil be a build thread of some sort coming out in the near future.

In reply to Indy-Guy :

Thanks, my GTI is Fahrenheit #404 so it seemed kinda straightforward. 

The problem with a Fiero is finding one that will make a decent backup, just-in-case daily that isn't so nice I'll feel bad about tracking and modding. Any tips on finding good deals on Fieros?

The problem with either, right now, is that the List of Craig is experiencing sever difficulties in my area. I fully expect it to recover, though, so I'm working on some general goals and build plans. I actually just got done reading through your Scratchy build thread.

New to the forum, but a long time lurker for many years.  Has always been my go to site to check out cool and fun projects and cars.

Live in the Tampa Bay area of Florida. 

Have owned and number of different types of cars over the years:

'85 Trans Am, '85 IROC-Z, '89 Mustang GT, '95 Mustang GT,  (2) '67 Camaros with 4 speeds,

'82 Porsche 928 Manual Trans Weissach Edition, '86 Mercedes 560 SEC

Just sold my '67 Camaro and I'm looking to get something else a little more modern. Have a few things in mind but haven't decided on which car yet.

Daily driver is a Toyota Tacoma TRD 4x4.

Hi all. 

I'm brand new to the grm forums. I found it while looking for a fun car with three pedals to teach my girls to drive a stick. On that topic, does anyone know how I can get approved to send private messages? 

As for me, if it has wheels (or tracks, or can be modified) I'm a fan. I've had a few cool (to me) cars in the past (supercharged lt1 z28, 3.0 contour svt set up for scca, 97 ws6, 99 Dakota rt, modded Lincoln mark viii, ls drag truck... and a minivan for YEARS). Now it's time to teach the oldest of my three kids to drive a manual and we don't have one in the fleet.  Fun times to follow....
