I am probably the only person in the world that does not have a Facebook page, due to my profession as a therapist. I tried it for several weeks several years ago, and even with the privacy settings, my clients were able to find me or my family members. (Not to mention the vitriol and politics that seems to have taken over the social media sites…sigh.

I apologize for not making any recent contributions as like ,others, I have been lazy or lacked something of substance to post…my bad!

Happy Motoring!

So here's a shop/engine update: Felpro/Summit gaskets finally arrived last week for the turbo block that we haven't touched yet. We're on NA block #3 found under our neighbor's work bench (along with a nice amount of bench filth we had to clean off of it-- has been sitting there since late 70s / early 80s). He asked for scrap price of a 2.3 in return for him donating it to us so we've got a whole 20$ in this specific engine block we're building. The other two had some issues on the walls of the cylinders so we didn't end up using them. The rings are going in next. We're still sitting on a massive pile of 2.3/2.0/2.3T parts.

We've been using the new parts cleaner to clean all the old stuff that is getting used as we go along. I've got video of the rotating assembly so far here: (it's not much but hey it's a start). Other projects and some customer cars have been taking up time and space.

For sure! And I can always customize it to make it my own. Having a solid base is more important since things can be swapped. I can make it look like a 77-8. I have the knowledge and parts. Having a good base is more important since structural  repairs cost more money and ability.

Another update. Still working on the underside. Using sanding sponges to sand the dirt type grit and lite surface rust. I finally finished removing the driveline attached to the axle, wasn't worried about it till now. Its in my way for sanding. Just removed the 2 u brackets.
Also removed the last exhaust hanger. Sanded,cleaned then primed the area between the spare tire and rear axle.
Also was pulling out old mouse nest debris thats inside the frame. Had to be careful lol was pulling stuff out and stabbed my finger on a 30yr old sticker. Found several more after that.

That's the idea: do your homework!  Go into it with that attitude and you'll find a winner!

Definitely. 1: beauty is only skin deep. 2: rust is evil. 3: mechanical condition is important. 4: In the case of these cars it doesn't matter how the outer structure looks if it's rusted underneath. .

I get suspension may need rebuilt (I have full suspension kit in the garage). Color combinations are important but can be changed. I don't like brown but get a car with a good, solid base and it can be repainted. The 80 I bought too quickly and did not do research first. the 77 I wagon I wanted and fell in love with my parents old wagon. The 77 sedan I passed on and then went back to, thinking it was fixable without looking it over.

Live and learn. Both are nice looking cars but I'd want to see pictures underneath before making the drive. I'd want to have some idea of mechanical condition before going without a tow unit. Time will tell.
