I have wanted to build a 2k challenge car for a few years now so when CruiserMatt offered this car as a roller I jumped. I attended as a spectator this year and that increased my desire to participate.

Not many people would want to return after hanging out under a car with me and gas leaking everywhere. Glad you got it and looking forward to seeing you in the spring.

Still no regrets. I have owned some rough S13 Nissans. Maybe I am just used to rough!! Honestly, thanks again for a good quick start kit.

I'd love to come up and return a favor.  Let me know even if it's just watching you do stuff while I run my mouth.

Down in Bradenton now. My mother in laws funeral is tomorrow. Then we need to get the house ready and on the market. So I am here for a little while. When I get back home and get a few things sorted, I will take you up on that offer! Thanks  Stampie.

Hopefully NA aluminum block 5.3 and whatever transmission shows up at the right price. Try to optimize it for the Autocross and let the drag race performance fall where it may.

Definitely should be neat for everyone to see what happens with same car, opposite goals.

It's not too unusual to find TH400s in Jacksonville yards.  I know Gopullit has a 73? Cadillac.  TH400 but BOP pattern.  Can't remember how many bolts line up.

Thanks! Yes, that one is my closest you pull it yard. And their prices are reasonable to start with, all the better when it's a holiday sale! Going down to Jacksonville FL on Friday with my younger son to hit the 2 larger yards there. Both are having 50 percent off and one combines discounts (we have a 25 percent off card). We are hoping to find some good stuff then too.

If you have a front turnsignal

pigtail that you won't need I'd love to send some $$ for it!

In reply to jfryjfry : are you looking for a pigtail for a E36 or am I incorrect? Although I don't have one I am more than glad to see if I can get one when I am hitting the u pull it yards in Jax Friday. If it is for another application that's not a problem. Let me know.

Don't know how I missed the Prius column.  It'll be cool to see how it works.
