Terrific! I am very jealous and hope to one day post a picture of me in my car doing that.

nah, he is a good autocrosser. Think he had a 46 second run and I had 49. I did get acknowledged for only using my brakes twice...I'm betting I was flat out more than anyone else also.... my fat butt crushed the hp to weigh ratio in the wrong direction.

Here's my new-to-me '73 2.0l on it's way to the mechanic after I dug it out of a garage where it sat for about 2 years.

Thanks; car is running! I drove it to work yesterday - what a gas. Very light, engine runs good, car goes down the road straight. I'll drive it a little in order to figure out what all it needs and then start on fixing it up over the winter. My goal is to make it a solid driver, not a garage queen.

Ok, I'm trying to get this car done. Got someone working on it to hurry things along (at least quicker than I would finish it). Here's one of the motor/tranny newly installed.

Also have seats and interior (with yellow stitch) ready to go. New windshield finally installed along with back glass (right at 5 years to the day since I got the car), front end bits are tied up and I finally have working headlights. Just picked up this steering wheel locally. Vintage Momo etch dated on the back 7/79 (bought NOS hub adapter and a new horn button). We are very close to being done. Hope to have it road worthy in the next month! Wish me luck.....

And in case you missed it, there's ZERO bright work left on the car other than the key locks on the doors and trunk. Makes the car look soooo much newer without detracting from the car IMO. Gives it a more eighties 911 look.
