1hen I came back from lunch today I got a good look at hazmat from my favorite angle.

 

the front 3/4 view on this car looks awesome. 

 

I went and took the trash out and snapped this photo even with the poor lighting to remind myself.. this is when the car looks really good on these wheels... 

 

when I drove past the car today.. there was a pang of guilt.. when it's sitting nosed in against the garage at the old place... easy to not think about.. but now... hard to not see the good angles.. bad paint and all. 

 

one of my good buddies said to me one 

 

"maaaaannnn... Pete you love a good hooptie!" and I do.. and I'm starting to form a plan in my head on how to make Hazmat a triple threat car just like Ronald...

almost 4 months later.. and hazmat hasn't moved thanks to a variety of things..

but plans are forming on getting another K20 to get the car back on the road sooner than later..

In reply to clutchsmoke :

a K24 long block is cheaper than a used K20z3 long block.... but will set me back enough in tuning, extra needed parts and additional work.. that I realized I need to park that idea if I'm going to get this car back on the road in a reasonable amount of time.... I'm just not working with enough extra cash right now for that to make sense.

I've got some stuff going on at work.. so I'm not going to start making moves overnight.. but wheels are turning..

to that point... I  spoke with some friends who have an 8th gen and have done the swap themselves and they're willing to let me use their lift for 2 days to do the swap. which has been a hurdle I've been trying to overcome...

so i guess the evidence is still pointing to a blown HG?  might be interesting to see an autopsy when it gets yanked.

Cracked block is still my guess.

Hazmat... has officially left the building.

I've had the battery on the charger for 2 weeks to make sure it was ready to go. Fired right up and drove the 2 blocks to where the truck was waiting for me.

It's headed off to a new owner in the northeast to become a wheel to wheel car in GLTC with #Gridlife
