Im surprised how much that car went for considering it was basically in the middle of nowhere (I was going to bid $700 and pay $850 for shipping..) How bad was the rust IRL, the photos were not too clear.. No idea on the specs however I would imagine it would be about the same as a SOHC engine, I do...

Ghost Piazza Build

Thought I would make a build thread for my drawn out project to get some more motivation. It started out like this, looks good on the surface, however rust lurks just below the surface: http://e4675d6c-a-62cb3a1a-s-sites.googlegroups.com/site/aucklandweb/piazza/Piazza800x600.jpg It is now sitting in...

Wonder how well a 7" tablet screen will squeeze between the speedo and rev counter.

Always wanted a DigiDash in mine, but I think if I were to get one now I would make one from scratch, and it would be a digital mechanical hybrid.
