I've had my car since 2007, I haven't had much time for it since I started a business but once everything is set and running smoothly and I can get some free time to myself I'll be able to enjoy the roads again.

I have several car projects. But my business has been form around the fact. I have my own garage, it isn't big or much, but I always have room to upgrade when needed. I did a complete rebuild of both a engine and transmission for a 1989 c1500. That was a long ass time slot. Chemical baths are a b*tch, then baking soda blasting each part, and replacing broken parts. It took several months to do cause at the time I was a senior in high school, working 40hrs a week and going to college. So only had a couple of hours each night to work on it.


But she runs better then most cars. She has almost 240,000 miles on her body, but only 5,000 miles on the engine and transmission.

She still needs work. Call her "the wife" cause there's always something she needs.

i have a 2000 Mustang GT convertible that Ive owned for a year now. I plan on swapping out the old 4.6 with a 5.0 Coyote motor out of a 2011-up Mustang GT so I can get 460hp out of a 20 yr old sleeper car.

My current project is actually my daily. 07 classic silverado 4.3 manual. Getting a 350 vortec style put toghter slowly, along with a dana 70u that be going in the rear end. So far I've just replace majority of the light (except dash and headlights) with LEDs. Put toghter a intake setup for the v6 to help it breathe a tad better above mid range rpm.

As soon as I figure which way I'm going n/a or s/c I be able to get the v8 into the truck, and find a better trans then whT I have now.

89 Silvia. Swapping in a rebuilt CA18 with every internal mod. Machined head. Borg Warner turbo. Super Advan wheels. Been in the US about 7 years. My girlfriend imported it. It's her dream car (good taste) and after a freak parking lot accident and a popped head gasket we decided to go balls out with it. We have a third CA18 I want to put in a D21 truck. Also have a 94 Grand Marquis I wanna make into a sleeper. No, I'm not gonna donk it lol.

1986 Chrysler Fifth Avenue here. Yeah, it's not what most would mess with, but it's an old car, I got a parts car with it, and parts are cheap.

I just picked up an EG Civic for the gas milage but once prices calm down a bit i want to do either a B or a K swap. If I save up enough money im considering building a G23 from a F23 block and a H22 head. Either way im doing a manual swap since im bored with automatic.

I used to have a nice 67 Charger back in 2006, i got it from one of my dad's old friend, but I had to sell after we moved out, I miss that car (even if that thing barely started hehe), maybe someday I'll get a new project but for now I rather stick with my model trains ;)

My car is a 1985 firebird 350 700r4. She has a mini spool, B&M shift kit, thumper cam, flat top pistons, 416 ported heads, single plain intake, fitech fuel injection and a B&M ratchet shifter. Unfortunately I haven’t had time or money to work on it in a few years because life got a hold of me.

I have a 1985 Chevy C-10 Pickup sitting in front of my house waiting for it's new headlight to come in lol. I'm also having to replace a few fuses cause i can't hit my horn without getting shocked..She's definitely a project. Tip of the day, order things ahead of time and don't let the rats get to your wiring.
