Default Sweed - Honda CRX

I bought this car in November, I think, 2007. Saw it sitting with a "For Sale" sign not far from where I lived, and passed it everyday of the week on the way home from school. My dad saw it one day, and liked it, and asked me about it. We went to check it out, a few things on the engine needed fixing, but it was overall a pretty solid car. Or so it seemed, but I've learned alot over the last two years.

The AC needed to be re-charged and there was a leak in one of the lines. The valve cover gasket was leaking. Both, relatively easy fixes. Oh, and the horendous eBay coils on blown stock shocks. That didn't get fixed for almost a full year.

Fast forward to summer 2008. It was near 100* in July. Changed the entire suspension/rims/tires and got it aligned the day before Project Revolution (with Linkin Park). Day and night difference.

At the beginning of Augast this year, the car went in for paint. Took three weeks and three grand, and I'm still not happy with it. From ten feet, it looks great, but from two, there's some problems. All that will hopefully get sorted though.





^^mind the jdm-tilt.

Shoes:
15x7", +40 Rota Slipstream

Default texan_idiot25 - 1969 Chevrolet CST/10

1969 Chevrolet CST10

Bought it in the beginning of 2007 for $500 bucks, and a week later dragged it home and parked it. For two years it's home was my dad's drive way. So long so that it is on google maps and street view Late that year, I had found an engine and transmission for $750, a 'rebuilt' small block 350, and a rebuilt TH350 trans. Paid for it friday, painted it saturday morning, and it was running by that evening. That Christmas broght a slew of parts to get the drivetrain fairly finished. Over the course of the next year though, not much happened. I had a second car, the SlowBird, and was just trying to save money. But, when it came down to it, I had one choice. Sold the Firebird for 2 grand, and went to work for the 2 week xmas break to get'r'done. With a 2 grand budget it was just enough to get things done. Disk brakes parts from a 73-87 C10 "heavy halfton" were used including the spindles, calipers, ball joints, and brake lines to convert the front from drums to disks. The disks are custom made 6 lug versions. This was the most taxing part of the build, 40 year old truck suspension was nothing but trouble to take apart. And I now hate any suspension work to this degree. It was also dropped initally 3in front and 5 rear, but the rear was raised to a 3in drop for some axle clearence (this is still a truck, and it still works like one) Then attention was paid to finishing everything under hood. Engine wiring, various fuel and coolant lines were done properly. New accessory fuse block and wiring were added to keep the new things we added out of the stock harnes. The gauge cluster was painted, rebuilt, and added an '05 Cadillac Escalade clock. All of the garbage wiring done to the truck was redone and the electrics of the truck restored. Interior consists of 1st gen S10 seat belts, and 08 Silverado seats, with welded supports for all new bolt holes. New radio and speakers were added, apart of the new wiring process. Head lights were in finally, and the truck began to look like a truck for the 1st time! Every day from the moment I woke up til I went to sleep was spent on it during those two weeks. And by the end of the brake, I took it for it's first drive. Just a little run to burnish in the brakes and get a little test run in. It needed some odds and ends done, but on Febuary 5th, 2009, tag inspected and taxed, I drove it home and the CST10 was a road worthy machine. Not with out a few quirks, but as to be expected. Currently awaiting body work and a cab swap, and of course, mo' speed. Currently my daily driver with several thousands of miles put on since last febuary. A total joy to drive, and a unique experience with other people make this one of the best experiene/decisions/money pits of my life so far.
