About “96 GT”

I bought the car in the summer of 05 and it needed a new top, tires, interior, a few other little pieces. So far I have gotten a new top, rearend, carpet, seats, and lots of other small things. I have a aluminum forged shortblock I am building. Plans for it are to resleeve it for 3.700" pistons and a stoker kit to bring total cubes to 324 c.i. Still undecided on SVO heads or ported PI's. Time will tell.

About “97 Z 3”

I have owned the car since March of '05. Never seen snow and only rain a few times. I have made this car what it is on a college budget.
