Beautiful cage but it might squeak like crazy touching the interior pieces... One of the reasons I gutted the back of my car, the squeaking noises from the bars rubbing on the vinyl drove me nuts.

Im happy its finally starting though. I think the metal is coming this next week to start on widening the fenders. more to come!!ohh and also Matt said there was about 5 different resprays on this car. im glad its getting brought down to metal. the mirror housings are also cracked and bondod over. I sent him 2 new mirrors that have defrosters built in. which will be awesome to wire up!!Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

on February 2nd 2018 a mysterious package came.. the power plant. no one will know what engine this is nor how much power it makes..  "At a certain time of night the Midnight Star tears up the roads.. a blue streak of light passing before your eyes. at speeds deemed crazy.. only to be dreamed. some say only a sound can be heard but not seen... "..

its not an rb, 4g63, g54b, 1jz, 2jz... hehe ;)

Pretty flat package.  Wankel?  Some boxer type?  Why am I guessing when I'll never know? Heh..heh. :D

I'm excited to see the metal work!  
Did you pick up any real estate flyers along the way? I always see places I might like to live on a trip like that. Kansas has some pretty flat & straight roads! Zoom!

ill give you one hint and I say no more... Vegemite. ;)

OMG!! Kansas was the craziest thing ever.. straight road no one around. a house would pop up with a tree growing through it and then randomly a car would be on your arse but not pass and not 5 mins later would disappear.. ummm.. yeah like out of a movie weird.

The Australian rock band Men at Work refer to a "Vegemite sandwich" in the second verse of their 1981 hit song "Down Under"
