    Tuesday I spent some time on the greenrio. Pulled a trash bag worth of stuff out of the car. It's nasty and the seats and carpet will need to all go. Engine and brakes are seized. Cleaned out the airbox and checked the plugs they are bad. No signs of anything inside broken although 2 of the plug holes were full of oil. Probably bad VC seals. Otherwise the car is complete and the body is in great shape. Will go back maybe this weekend to free up the engine and maybe get it going. I put a little marvel oil in the cylinders and replaced the battery terminals.

    I went over there this morning and popped the wheel off and broke the engine free it required very little effort. Spun it a few times with the key but there isn't enough energy to keep it moving. Bought new plugs and I have a friend giving me a good used battery so next time I'm there hopefully it runs.

    The extra battery we commandeered was crap but it was enough to get the car running. Although it dies after a few seconds.

    Thinking of the fuel filter. I didn't replace the plugs yet since I forgot them :) it may be out of gas or have bad gas in it. We put about a gallon in this afternoon. I'm going to put a few more in and try to work it out maybe tomorrow.

    Also was able to break 3/4 wheels free with a few key cycles of dropping the clutch lol. The clutch is def close to being smoked.
