      Finals are over and I am getting ready to pack it up for the semester tomorrow. Then I can get to the mountains and my car. I will be going off-roading the week after Christmas which will be a first for me. Hopefully I will be able to drive my friend's Jeep on the rocks.

    • Almost there...

      Finals are hitting soon, but then I will be able to spend all of break working on my car and getting it up and running. I can't wait for this week to be over already. Hopefully things go well with the car work and I have it moving by January.

    • Waiting...

      So, my car is waiting and that engine is just waiting to be worked on. Too bad i have to wait until the garage is finished. We need to tear out the old engine and sell it before we can move any further (I need that $ for the parts) It should be done by the time winter break comes around--hopefully.

      Now I have an engine on my deck and a car in my driveway that has one flat tire, we can start the rebuilding process. We are starting a list of all the parts needed and what the costs will be. Hopefully once my parents garage is finished we can move in and start selling the engine and transmission to make some money and start this project for good.

    • Tomorrow

      So, even though the guy with the car screwed us over on the time scale by meeting us 3 hours after he was supposed to, we are going to get my engine anyway. Tomorrow we are going to New Jersey and should have a brand spankin' new V8 engine block for my firebird.

    • Finally!

      I am now that proud owner of a 1984 Pontiac Firebird. This car needs some work, but me and my friends are going to get it running by the end of winter break. This car is going to rock--I will have pictures soon of the way it looks now (not so great, but OK)

      Last night was the first step in the completion of my new car. I now have a V-8 engine block that I will build my new engine from.

      That is the link for my new block and I am going to pick it up with my Firebird and then strip the parts to make some cash! Next week after Thanksgiving I should be able to start working on it.

    • Change of plans

      So...my car choice for the project has changed. I have found a pontiac firebird that I think I will try and rebuild. This will be awesome since it is a really easy engine to play with and really popular for parts.

    • Possible new car....

      So, my friend wants to see if he can find again an old Porsche Spyder that he saw for sale so that I can start to rebuild it and learn how to work on cars. Hopefully he can remember where he saw it and get it for me. Then I can start working on it over the winter holiday.
