Default Well 3 years ago I smoked my motor

Well 3 years ago I smoked my motor within 15 mins of getting it off the trailer at Silver Lake. That was one hell of a long weekend without a ride. shortly after our trip to the dunes my wife and I started building a house ( no cash for a motor ) till the house is done. once the house was done I got laid-off and I took a job 3 hours from home to make the bills once again ( no cash for a motor ) long story short, I got a new job around the first of the year 17 miles from home and the green light to get the buggy done !!! I know how everyone loves photos of shit getting done so here are some I took. enjoy

Your problem was that thing ya painted blue in the back of the buggy--shoulda thrown a Dub motor in it--You can rebuild them with a pop can, fountain pen and a book of matches


Looks great btw and just in time for the season

Looks to be a good old Pinto motor! Have you fired it up yet? Wondering how loud it sounds without any muffler on it. Usually the only way those with header straight pipes can pass the 94 dBa is going through a turbocharger.
