    Working on the body now, then paint, then interior, and finally fabricating a d series b16a6 swap. Enjoy the pics lol What a pile . Ohh found out the wheels are 4 x 100 though. Need to find some good wheels. Im thinking gray for the color maybe? Ideas? :D :D

    First off were going to fix the body damage and paint it gray. Then were going to redo the interior with civic/integra front seats and new black carpet. Then gray foam backed vinyl all the door panels and rear panels, aluminum plate dash, d16a6 engine and drivetrain.

    my friend had a bunch of junk cars in his back yard. we took a v8(460) out of an old f250. we cut the front of a oldsmobile cutless supreme off. we took the old v6 out of the olds and cut and weld, and cut and welded somemore. we make the bitch fit, and then we tried welding all of the body back on, but it didnt work too well. we fired the engine up(carbed) and we had built an ultimate donughnut car. we beat the hell out of this car and drifted it until the drive shaft snapped(old v6 driveshaft that was shortened up). we debated on installing the f250 axle, but we decided not to, we took engine out and scraped engine and car(got more seperate). oh and we neutral dropped that thing and it pulled a wheelie. it was pretty cool. its fun taking junk and other junk and having fun with junk and making more junk.

    Got sidetracked and the yugo has been in our storage garage for a while now, were going to start on it pretty soon, the body work is almost finished, were going to start on fabricating the motor mounts and the new brake control.

    WTF is that? No really... WTF... is that? I mean, OK, car without any seats and shit all over the place. Fine... Then there's some dude without a shirt, wearing lunch lady gloves, showing us how big his mouth and tounge are. Great. So, uh, what's the correlation? How do the two mix? They don't! So again... WTF is that?
