    If you want to restore a car you need to become very educated on your project vehicle. Some people enjoy driving them, some people enjoy working on them. Most cases you'd be money ahead by buying a completed car. Many old cars cost more to restore than they're worth.

    I bought my last project car 14 years ago and enjoyed working on it. It was priced reasonable and numbers matching, it was all i could afford at the time. I did everything except exterior paint. Today, I would buy a "done" car. I'm getting to an age where I can't see myself laying underneath the car every weekend.

    Yes, I have. First time one their site, looks like they don't offer much stuff for BMWs.

    Very nice! Im planning on going back down to TTE next year.

    No, I still drive my car to the track...maybe eventually I will!

    It's never done...but just got running again after about 2 years of suspension/brake/rear end work. Going to try and drive it for 5-7 years before it gets torn down, repainted, and new motor/trans.

    Stonewall Jackson, '96 Xtracab, rebuilt motor
    Full rebuild short of machine work, mean green motherfucker! Lime green block, hand-polished valve cover, and stickers! Too broke for real mods right now. Stonewall is my baby, but he's also a work truck.
    My Dad has two Triumph TR4's, a '61 and a '63. When he retires, they will be our little projects. The '61 is black, and had electrical problems when he garaged it back before I was born. The '63 is white, and he bought it off of my uncle Paul, (yet again, before I was born) who had wrecked it. I don't have pictures of them, but when I get back up to Newport News (they are in our garage up there at the old house) I'll take some pics. But our goal is to get those two beauties back on the road and paint at least one of them British racing green.

    I have multiple dream projects of my own. I want to get ahold of an 82-84 Hilux Pickup and throw a 350 in it. I'd also like to restore a '79 Ford F-250, a '67 fastback Mustang, an '89 Chevy dually, and a 1st gen Hilux Pickup. I'd also like to build a couple more 4th gen Civics and some CRX's. I also plan on building some sick 1st gen Tacos.

    Picked this truck up about a month ago. '78 F100 (same age as me!). This body style picked up an extra 1.5" length in the cab. I am 6' 5", so that was important. I've always loved these trucks. It runs and drives but needs a lot of work. Not looking for perfect, but I want it to be respectable and fun to drive.
    I've already started the tear-down (i.e.: no radiator, etc.). Planning an engine rebuild and a 5 speed swap. I've already replaced a rusted inner fender, fixed the driver's door and adjusted the hood and fender gaps. I'll be going with burnt orange paint and a little refreshing of the interior.
