Hi All (Robbie here with a different account),

I'm looking to use this account to 'watch' all the current, future, planned, ongoing, stalled, etc challenge build threads. If you have a build thread, please link it here so I can watch it, and I will place a link to this account's watchlist in this post as well so everyone will be able to see all the $2000 Challenge build threads in one spot. Note: I see a lot of builds with "challenge" in the name but I will not make any assumptions. Please post in this thread to add your challenge build. Please feel free to link this thread in people's challenge build threads if they don't see this thread and you want to suggest they list their build here.

Also, if you get added and then really want to be removed, I guess you could post that here too.

Thanks!

Watched. Thinking about the burner account thing, it would actually be WAY worse if this account with the challenge watchlist gets banned...

Robbie, it might be a good idea to include a picture of the car from each link.  Kind of like Andy's thread.

I like that idea - I think each builder posting their link here should select the picture and post it with their link.

I don't think it is possible to add pictures to the watchlist (the link in my first post), but it would be cool if we could...

CSmith's #16 $2018 build. 

1994 Mazda Miata, went from before to after in 31 days, more plans for next year...

Mine. After Christopher's entry, I am excavating the garage to uncover this (photo is from our last house; project has made 0 progress in almost 2 decades.. Ouch. That sounds really bad when I put it in writing. $500 1980 Triumph TR7 Spider. Envisioned in the late '90's for BOP 215/Rover 3.5 or preferably LS engine swap (that sure has gotten cheaper!!) 

Hoping to pull this together for 2020. 2019 is likely to be a big stretch for me... it's still under a mountain of stuff, including more boxes of TR7 spares. It's going to be extremely challenging to put together documentation from that long ago, but I will do my best... 

Smitty's Wedge Heaven. Web page circa 1999

The page, much like the car, has received no attention in 19 years. Sigh. House, kids, Miatas (that run without ongoing sacrifices of your own blood!), etc.
Not getting rid of any of those, but i think it's time to fish or cut bait. Time to get something moving.
