    I've been meaning to put together a thread for the car but it's taking forever to get it all tuned. I'll be sure to put them up once I get the sheets. Heres some teaser pics though.

    My buddy and I both just picked up our own SHOs, this will actually be his second (first one died in a crash but we saved the engine). I got a 91, he got an 89. Unfortunately mine overheated badly on the drive home, so I'm replacing the heads and doing all the 60k maintenance and then some while i'm down there. In the future we're both looking to tune them. Thankfully the spare parts supply isn't totally dry yet.

    Have a 3.3 high compression in planning for this mint body 1995 MTX I bought last fall (never seen winter, no door dings). Already have , a 54 K mile 3.2 on a stand, EH runners, custom intake cams that SHOsource got for me and plan to run some intake cams in the exhaust position for short duration/higher lift than stock. Sorry no power adders. Considering Ti valves for it, possibly whittling down some ex-Nascar intake valves and recoating.

    Your avatar still scares the hell out of me!

    I've always wanted to do something to my turd, but then I feel like I should just leave it stock. One of these days, maybe...

    I'm still working on the heart transplant on The Other Woman. A 3.2 from Eric's Bondurant car with 10K miles on the clock.

    I'm surprised you recognized it with all the new mods and all.
    Unless you just knew I bought her. She's In good hands maybe you'll get to see her again at sho convention one of these years.

    The pin stripe and wheels are how I keep up with it. If you do something with those then I'll be lost! :p I'm glad its being rejuvenated.
