The engine has 8,000 miles since I blue printed it. Forged racing pistons, shot peened connecting rods, all bearings replaced and measured with ("plasti-gauge"), which mean assembly of the motor, then disassemble, twice over. 10 degree Kent Cam, and a 40mm Side draft Weber Carburetor with modified intake manifold and header exhaust system. The engine block was line honed and machined to factory spec. She purrs like a kitten! The body, well, I have stripped it down and cut out virtually every offending piece. This means "Bondo" work done to it years ago, about 30 years ago, not by me. I am doing an all steel restoration. Card modeling really helps because I can make all the templates out of cardstock and then welding becomes much easier. These pictures represent the passenger car. Tis car was given to me. A tree 8 inches in diameter, about 35 feet high was growing out of it. The guy said it I could get it out I could have it. I removed the tree and drove the car away,(it sat there for many years needless to say, and the guy became hesitant at giving it to me, but kept true to his word. It looks rough, but I own a lot of metal working equipment, including Mig/Tig welders, so rust does not intimidate me. All metal used has been recycled from washing machines, which use exceptionally high quality steel, and other similar appliances. I just wanted to post these pictures to have something to compare them with when completed. I was offered $6000 dollars for the engine by a guy who races these! I said no, but he gave me a brand new set of Honda CRX seats, which I will use, I would have preferred the Recaro seats he had just purchased! . This will be a restoration, but not a "purists' type restoration. Looks daunting, doesn't it?
