Lol.
It's almost like they were "pickling" the engine for long term storage.

Even more impressive.

I didn't know a civic could hold that much oil in the trunk, let alone the oil pan and block.

I would have found a naive new guy to watch for anything odd as I turned the engine over.

Once he got cleaned up I would have him begin calling parts stores to find a radiator for a 67 Beetle.

I just started working on 3 motors, an L24, L48 and a 71 Z28 350/330hp. The before pictures are pretty interesting and as soon as I get them torn down a little I'll post them for you...

Well fellas I managed to score a prototype Roush center cap horn button. There were two available one with a black background and one with a brushed background. I picked the brushed as I think it'd match the brushed aluminum in the cabin. Here it is:

I'll be installing it after the driver airbag recalls are done. Been busy at the shop and haven't had much spare time after work. Friend of mine will be taking the Roush to the dealer and I'll be in the GT. so we can knock them both out at once.

68 911 custom widebody slantnose. Ok, don't know really where to start so I might skip around, just bare with me. These are statements made by the deliverer of the car, not the owner, take them for what it's worth. It's a family owned vehicle that has been totaled 5 times in its life, been all over the country. From what we are seeing the car has quiet a lot of money in it, deliverer stated 80 grand. After further inspection of the car, that statement began leaning toward true. Has a vinyl Porsche targa convertible top, we suspect it was a hardtop at some point in its life. Car has a custom dash, with Porsche leather seats, black carpet. Engine seems to be upgraded to what extreme we don't know yet. From a visual it has two three barrel weber carbs and some head and cylinder work performed. Engine is missing some pieces and waiting for a reply from owner, displacement is unknown at the moment. Car has upgraded Porsche brakes 4 piston dual piece drilled rotors on all 4, most likely from a late 80s early 90s 911 turbo. Wheels are from a company that I can't remember, deliverer stated wheels were 16 grand. Now for body, I do not know if the car is still in a restro mod restoration or getting final tweaks. All air inlets and outlets from the body are real, do they function I don't think so. Body seems to be somewhat strait with the exception of the wing. Front fenders are crack at the peak of the wheel well, most likely due to the large wheels. The rear wheels rub against the body. Front head lights seem to be from an early 90s chevy truck. Rear taillight seems to be from a 930. Ok, reason it's here, had someone install a cylinder and now the car doesn't run, might explain why engine is in pieces, alternator/air cooler belt is missing. We were recommended by a euro parts store in Clarksville, TN. That's all I can think of for now. I'll post updates on the cars progress along with other cars at the shop...


Adventure till you drop

those headlighs were the first thing I noticed that I actually knew lol
