Technically, it should be the T-boned 93 Sentra that I sold for $50 and a motherboard. However, as far as money and me actually messing with it goes, it'* my 94 Bonneville. Sorry, guys. Still, I love the car and plan to fix it up to do crazy things. It'* come a long, long way since the first day I got it. The seats were so bad that I had gone as far as getting ricer seat covers, and no pics were ever taken of the two seats inside the car.

My dad'* biggest basket case is his 92 Ford Aerostar. Quite a sight.

Mmmm, TA. The Mustang is a factory 2 barrel 289 v8 car with pony interior. The engine now has a four barrel, high volume oil pump, roller tip rockers, mild cam. It is not going to be fast, especially with the C4 slushbox behind it and 2.7x gears. I might gear it later but for now the restoration is enough work. I don't have a resto thread going anywhere but I can post a few more pics and details. I'll try to get a shot of the engine on the stand, pics of my new wheels for it, and some metalwork pics. The metalwork is almost done, on to bodywork now. I just need a warm day to shoot the epoxy.

That truck is the biggest POS I've EVER owned. I wouldn't wish ownership of this thing on my worst enemy.

CPI?

That pic is from 2005. It'* still in the same relative shape. Tonneau cover is gone and flaking paint in the doors is starting to take over.

Without my list in front of me, here'* what I remember placing off the top of my head....
  • U-joints
    Rear axle (carrier was shot)
    wheel cylinder
    rear shoes
    rear drums
    rear brake lines
    transmission rebuild - 3 times, yes 3 time
    transmission case (had a lovely crack)
    catalytic convertor
    4 oxygen sensors
    knock sensor
    transmission cooler
    tires
    tailgate latch assembly
    tailight wiring
    driver'* side fender
    windshield
    driver'* door latch assembly - 2 times, yes TWICE
    passenger side dome light switch (and about to do it again )
    spark plugs
    wires

I think that'* about it. It is the biggest piece of junk I've ever owned. I'll never buy another Chevy pickup.

Bought it in Jan., 2004 with 91,000 miles. Now has 132,000 miles. I hate it. I have too much in it to get rid of it....at this point. Hopefully the rust and paint peeling will get bad enough that I can justify selling it for a FORD.
