Looks like the video didn't post. Try uploading it to YouTube and post the link from there.

Ended up finding a 2003 gt that got rear ended . Had a solid drivetrain and motor and a descent price. When we got the motor out we ended up finding out the motor that was in it was a fresh rebuilt motor with about 30 k on it so I lucked out there. And it had a steeda catback that I was able to use.

Quite a project you took on there. Recycling from salvage is always good. Congrats on getting it complete.

Very nice! You can always take more pride in something when YOU put the long, hard hours into getting it finished. Well done and hope she can hit the pavement soon!

$17k? Wow. What all was done? That sounds like an awful lot of money but I know labor can be pricey.

Have you had time to get any numbers or times on the car yet or are you still fine tuning?

Scottydsntknow, from the day I bought the car for 1200.00 to tearing it down to bare metal and body work and having it painted for 4100.00 then the whole new suspension for around 2600.00 then gutted out the interior and put a whole new leather interior for about 600.00 finally the donor car ended up being 2000.00 other parts needed and my buddy using his shop and helping me with the motor and tranny swap ended up around 3000.00 there's other upgrade mods and stuff I got but that's the gist of it
