    Haha. Not really, but even if I did no one would pay the price tag. This car with the parts on it is sitting at right around $19,380. Engine alone is at ~$13k. The goal for me was to stay below the original MSRP of $23,635.

    Also I'm in the process of working with a contractor to build a rambler style house with a walk out, which would then include my ideal shop of 3 stalls wide by 2 stalls deep with a loft over the rear 3 stalls, which over looked the front 3 stalls. The back 3 will consist of (left to right) paint booth, tools area, and machining/welding area. Front 3 stalls (left to right) open work bay, work bay with two post lift, open work bay. This shop will be in addition to my main 3 stall garage for the daily drivers. The loft area of the shop will have door ways that walk into the main garage, main level of the house, and a walk out to the deck.
    PLEASE start a build thread on Garage Journal if you do this.

    I agree, you are talking about building a house, moving, setting up shop. This could drag on for 5 more years.

    I see. I'll give you this much; You're certainly proficient at multi-tasking. I dunno how how you can have all this stuff on your plate at the same time and get em all done...

    On another note, sorry no updates guys. I've been busy travelling for work and have not had much time for any hobby stuff. I'm still hoping to get this thing moving. It's on the task list, but just not a high priority. I've invested to much to just let it collect dust, but I need time and space to knock it out.

    Well now that it's getting warmer out I can clear out the garage to make some room. Should have this thing up and running soon enough.
