    Nah man he knows his stuff sure but doesnt mean all hope is lost. Once we get moved in, the old house gone and things somewhat back to normal Im gonna start exploring my options for sure. I need a space to work. Speaking of which, the old garage is now cleared out and the walls blasted with white to try and cover up the filth I collected over the years. Bittersweet. Not so much the garage, packing, moving, cleaning and painting it up was as much a pain in the ass as the entire rest of the house. Im over it now BUT alot of good (and semi substandard) stuff went on in that garage...its got the stained floors to show. Once I figure out what Im doing at the new place and set up shop Ill be over it! Oh...hopefully it keeps raining and noone says anything about the stains on the asphalt in the driveway LOL Matt

    Yeah Im not sure whats going on. My Bro-inlaw who builds houses looked at it and didnt seem to think it would be a worth-while adventure to try and mess with but who knows. The "attic" is open above the car but to the left of it they put some plywood down. Hell theres a damned window up there too and a door. They must have had some future plans for it but Im scratching my head as to what those might have been and why they stopped where they did. Matt

    Quit wondering and asking and find out!!!!! Get a set of 17's and meet me at Disneys and you will have plenty of traction to find out exactly what your car is made of (and how much fun traction is!!!!!!!!). I went from running 8.0-7.9's on Continentals spinnng off the line, short shifting 2nd, spinning then chirping 3rd to inconsistent 7.9's with the occasional 7.8 with slightly less spin on Nittos to back to back to back 7.5's with these ET Street R's. Being yours is an Auto Im betting these Nitto's would do the trick for you as well and you could run them on the streets, but Ide happily sell either one and let you taste traction. Oh and those 7.5's were in 90* weather, higher DA, hot lapping and sitting in the lanes idling tho never with the AC on thats a big no-no and sure to make you unpopular for dripping down the track. Im betting in cooler weather it woulda been in the 7.3's so even bigger gain over the Continentals. Ive got both tires sitting in the shed and either one would give you bigger gains than any other single mod. Traction is goooooooooooooooooooood. Dont blah blah blah about needing a new rear end first, get the grip, let it rip...if it breaks, THEN get a new rear end. Matt

    I don't know much bout buildings but they appear to be trusses. The car is back as far as I can get it to keep it out of the weather and the middle beam in about at the dash. If the poles weren't there dividing each bay you could MAYBE put a lift like Disney's in the back corner between the middle beam and back wall but nooooooo. Matt

    Its about 1.5 acre from the house. There isnt a path to it made out so its tearing up the yard to drive back and forth. No electricity anywhere near it and the way the poles are it splits it into 3 bays, no way to go between them with a vehicle so I would need 3 doors. Overhead doors would be tough but manageable, sliding barn doors would work. A lift would be the hardest part with that massive beam up the middle of it all. Its a nice large space tho so Im thinking about doing simple doors to seal it up, maybe run a generator and use it till we decide whether or not to build something right off the end of the driveway which we have plenty of room to do.

  6. Post your best slips and video!

    Woulda liked to have gotten some cooler weather runs in the GT. Oh well. Glad to see your still at it. Matt

    Unfortunately itll be quite an undertaking to turn it into what I would want out of a "shop" but itll hold my truck, the 66 and anything else I might want to get out of the way for a bit. Ide love to be able to run electricity to it, put some doors up and put a lift in but it would be a major undertaking to do any of those, much less all of them due to how it was built and where it was built. Oh well. I have some ideas to toss around this winter and see what sticks. Matt

    Well, finally got the 66 moved over to its new (most likely temporary) home. The garage is still packed with our junk so I cant put MY junk in it just yet. IF I can get some doors on this building I might consider leaving it back here. Its not the worst place its been parked for a while! Matt

    No way I LOVE black steelies with those bullet lug caps and trim rings BUT these wheels dont seem to look as good as the old-school steelies with beauty rings. You can find them for these wheels pretty readily but Ive never been a fan. Im gonna go nuts out till I get the alignment sorted then run the early model Cop covers and maybe see if I can snag a set of the later model lower profile covers down the road to see if I like them better (Joey has some).

    She's back on the road again. Getting the toe set (close enough at least) was super simple with the bumpsteer kit. Got everything dialed in, back together and fired her up to try and bleed the system and had NO power assist what-so-ever. When I did the trucks entire system I had power assist immediately despite being new but I guess a power rack and a steering box respond different. I got to work steering it back and forth and finally started to get some assist. Dropped it on the ground, said a prayer and hey, it works! The steering is super stiff feeling compared to what came on the car. You could fart in the back seat and if there was even a whiff of stink it would be enough to steer you into the ditch with the old setup. Now, you have to make an effort. Im getting used to it tho and on twistier roads its really really nice. I now have lock to lock steering without rubbing the K member, frame, strut etc BUT I do have the inevitable tire rub on the fender during hard turns. The BlueCoupe was the same way on these springs so no shock there. Ill roll the fender lips and then go from there. The ride is MUCH improved and it no longer bottoms out the struts on large bumps. The pump is dead quiet so I no longer sound like an old-timey fire truck anymore but there is some belt chirp thanks to the AC compressor being a little too far forward. It appears that there is some adjustment left and it might be enough to get it in line. Im gonna drive it around as is now till the move is a little more sorted but then Ill tackle the rear suspension and see if that helps with some of the remaining harshness in the ride! Matt

    Heck yeah if I have a hard time with my normal method Ill give you a holler and come snag em! I just wanna get it close enough to be able to drive for a bit before I get it aligned. Matt

    House is going on the market so I have to get my JUNK outta there ASAP!!! Got Patco in the Boro to put together a custom power steering hose to link the Saginaw pump and new Mustang GT steering rack. Ended up being the same price as buying one new (if I could) and appears to be really nice quality. I got everything together and got the car running, checked for leaks and ready to go EXCEPT i left my measuring tape at the new house so I couldnt adjust the toe. Ill do that tonight and will hopefully be able to clear the driveway. The 66 will head over next and then I can get to work moving the garage. Matt

    Ha threw away? Sold and funded is more like it. I love me some turbo action but rock solid efi small block action was better in this particular circumstance is all! Matt

    Nice! Wish I had something that could enjoy boost weather. Right now the truck is getting a workout and a half. It is enjoying "pull lots of crap and not overheat" weather tho I guess! Matt
