    well..the s12 was fun, but way to much of a project car for me. I dumped 6000+ miles on it in 4-5 months and it gave me no problems. I had started to dump real money into it, bought a stash of parts that would make it a monster...and it would have needed a few more parts and time to get it nearly perfect...and welp...it's going to a new owner soon.

    I posted a tiny for sale post here...and no biters. :rolleyes:

    But saw a post on another forum...and contacted a kid, and welp...


    I'm getting another car....we're just trading everything over...


    now what am I getting?!?!?!?!?!:ph34r:

    It's not a beer belly...It's a fuel cell for a sex machine...

    well....first things first.

    the front brakes are fresh, but the rears needs shoes.
    The brake switch wires were cut, so I'll have to work on that today.
    I have a kid that owes me money working off his debt by detailing the body, so far in one day he's got the car looking really good.
    We got the front bumper and the bumper supports off yesterday.
    I installed some fog lights, just have to run the wires.
    Today, I'll take off the hitachi SU carbs, and start installing the spare fuel injection set up on the engine. It should be fun...a 2.8 fuel system on a 2.6 engine....but I'm also thinking I might just swap the motor out of the red Z and slap it in, since I know it's good. And that will open up the red Z to take the turbo motor when I get some more parts.
    I'm thinking I'll toss the 17x7, 17x8 Volks on it with new tires. I just got to find those freaky lug nuts that fit the Ultra C's.

    I'll upload some pics later today.:D

    Got the engine out of the brown one, got the engine out of the red one, swapped over the motor mounts from the red one, and cleaned up the engine bay in the brown one a little. The F54 block with the P&P P90 Head is going in the brown one with the HD ACT clutch and 6 puck unsprung clutch. It's going to be a fun daily driver...hehe.

    I just got to swap around oil pumps and distributors...and drop the mild engine in the brown one today. Then hook everything up, like header, FI intake, FI swap, and try to get it running by tonight or tomorrow.
