Sometimes you mow the lawn and find car parts.  These things happen.

That 18mm socket had been gone almost 2 years. It's like it heard I've been messing w/ Ford truck stuff and knew to come back.

Those grapevines hide alot of sins.  I can't let SWMBO mow back there until they grow up in the spring otherwise I get a million questions about the E36 M3 I have back there.

You’re really inspiring me - and not in a good way. With all the cane overrunning our backyard I’m pretty sure I could squeeze a couple Miatas in there & she’d never see them.

Wher's the part where it is not good?

I don’t think the caddy gas pedal is going to work without serious surgery.  I think what i need is one of those old school 3 bolt gm pedals that was on every rwd 70’s and 80’s car and truck.

That is waaaay too perfect.

 

Say... since you plan on using this for car-ing after the Challenge, and not just "build for Challenge and then who cares", does this count as Gastropod?

Drag slicks aren't legal for Gastropod, so Patrick would have to make a choice. I think he'll choose the 1/4 mile path (at least I hope so)

I have at least another pair to chop up in the future.  Also the quarter panel has some subaru legacy in it, so there’s all kinds of strange partnerships going on in the front edge behind the door that would never have been imaginable had the cold war not ended.

east german car, swedish and japanese sheetmetal, american drivetrain, some chinese ebay parts.  Truly a multinational effort.
