Send me some pics of the ride so I can show my guys, maybe we can get you to roll with us. Going to shows alone kinda sucks

You can see a few pictures of it in my "garage" on this site. ugly but functional. My feeling is a car doesn't need to be pretty to go like stink, and that's not everyone's cup of tea.

Much of the apparent shoddiness is intentional, or at least I made no attempt to hide imperfections or rough craftsmanship; the money is in the engine, not the polish. It's structurally sound, and will be mechanically sound in about a week if everything stays on track.

Thanks!
you have no idea... I have a better one (worse?) but I couldn't find it. It's a lot cleaner and more buttoned up now, with the standalone management. Excited to get her back on the road after a 10 month hiatus due to an engine rebuild, twins being born, and winter.

Before I started that project, the most automotive work I had done was replace a tire and change a radiator. I had NO fabrication experience, NO wiring experience, and a very limited tool collection... I look back at that time and wonder what the hell I was thinking... then I remember my buddy saying "go for it"...
