The car has been sitting under a carport for over a year. since the old lady hit the front bumper and i took it off the road. There is a plethora of parts in boxes ready to go. an i run it once a week up to temp. recently burping the cooling system.
Now? the story and the hard truth.
I was at a BBQ with the local car crew at a painter's shop. The Yellow Monster came up. (previous owner got a Type RA) and i told them how much work it really needs. for my standards.
Boys all looked blank. and the painter? just rubs his fingers in the "Money" gesture.
Yeah, i know.
I'd be in the hole $4k just in body work. and that is before touching anything mechanical. and it needs everything.
Like all heroes, it is time to retire. Like Rick Flair, my car only has one WOOOOO, left.
so it is with a heavy heart. that i inform you all. i will be Stripping the car down.
-To build it anew.
With a new body.
The Engine, will get some love. and a clutch. the full driveline. along with under body braces,strut tower braces, brake lines,interior pieces, all of it.
Has a body waiting. time to Robocop the monster.
and put the soul into a shiny new chassis.
Question is. will you guys welcome his new skin?
we are about to go from commando to Terminator.
