I’d ideally get a trade in for subs or a good cam and then buy the other. I’ve already bought two cams, but if someone trades one to me I could buy subs. I have lots of SN95 body parts, a perfect dash, a mac catback with polished SS tips, and grey interior parts to trade. I’ve also got lakewood drag struts and shocks and sn95 control as and spindles to trade. I can afford to trade away value to get what I need for the project too. As for cash sales I’m already over on that.

not an argument with that, but the inspection that this car is about to go through is very similar to what ive been doing for 10 years, and when someone brings a well prepped car full of ebay parts, the budget numbers are easier to swallow. I mean, this car only has to drive two or three times.

I agree with all youíre saying but Iím inclined to build something good that will have a future life. Iím also partially inclined to drive this car there race it, and then drive it home because it should.

In good news buyer bought me SVE subs (mm copy) and will trading them plus cash to me for my parts.

Parts car might’ve been sent to scrap Saturday. I think I started pulling the nasty grey interior out of the white car too. I will have to check tonight. I might also be selling another $300 in parts tonight. I think I’ve already recouped all the money the rules will allow me to, sadly.

Why the move.... this is back porch fiction. There is no car.... my garage isnít full of Porsche and Ford parts.... and there are not 8 tires and 12 wheels in the back of my truck right now.

It’s a white GT with grey interior. I’m currently stripping out most of the interior and putting the black interior in the car. I’m also putting on the new tires and wheels today and the new windshield goes in too.

Or maybe this car doesn’t exist at all.... so there are no photos. Or perhaps maybe you can see it live on the challenge website in October.

even imgur seems to have gone to hell. I can't login, and they won't accept any new account I attempt to make.

Honestly if a few people are somewhat interested, I will just pay photobucket and share photos. I have about 100 so far including the trips to get both cars and the 95 part out. I had an engine rebuild class last night but I will be working on the 94 more this weekend. Iím hoping to finish up the interior this weekend.

Maybe my project car looks something like this.... maybe it doesnít.... maybe it doesnít exist at all. Get your butt to FL or keep an eye out at local car events if you want to find..... or not.

Anybody agree with me on that? That these cars need to be lowered a full 3" to look right. Granted you won't be using stock wheels when doing it.

I totally agree. With the 17s and 255/40 rubber right now it almost looks lifted. It's hideous. I have Steeda springs, MM C/C plates, a tubular K member, rear control arms and Tokico D spec shocks to install soon. I have the Lakewoods I took off the parts car for sale. I also have a very nice exhaust system to install. I also have a built 31 spline rear. I'm swapping interior parts now since the grey in this car was pretty ratty and it was smoked in. I'm installing the nice black interior from the parts car in it's place. If it weren't going to be so damned cold I wanted to finish that this next weekend.

Then I need to sell my blue car to clear space and then register this one and do all the suspension parts. Then I will start taking it to events and seeing how it runs. Then add some power..... then attempt a 10 footer paint job.

My old sn95 was on sportlines, it handled ok but rode pretty rough on normal driving. Post some updated pics!

Parts car I got from Idaho.



Iíd have loved to have gotten it running again and built it, but rust got to it. It had subframes welded in but never painted so they rusted out and hurt the chassis too. Iím not keeping a rusted chassis long term. The front end also got hit pretty hard messing up the core support and crossmember. This car came with so many cool parts I decided to do the challenge because of it.

Start of part out.



Parted out and sent to apache salvage. We removed about 2000 lbs of parts between myself, son, and a friend.



Gonna use his lift to swap rears on the white car.

But maybe itís all fake.

Wheels and tires done at christensen bros. I spend way too much on tires. They are on the white car now. The four it came with were bald and one barely held air for a day. I will autoX and drag race these while getting ready for the event. These are 200 TW DOT legal autoX tires. I hope they hook decent too.



Have a lot to do still but its almost a legal running CAM T car. I also got a new helmet since I haven’t raced in a long time.

I have a storage unit and garage with too many parts too. I need to get it pared down to what I need for my project and sell more. I’ve also got other parts in the garage for other cars. It’s going to be a busy year.
