History Bought this car as a rolling rusting shell 2 years ago, was missing more than I expected. Many, many, MANY thousands later (buying almost all used parts too), it is on the road. Very happy, car is quite quick and a handful on the street. Can't wait to keep adding more parts.

UPDATE 8/17/2015 FINALLY PASSED THE E-TEST!!!!! I CAN ACTUALLY DROVE IT ONE THE ROAD NOW!!!!!!!!!
Exterior

Nothing yet outside of 17" Cobra rims.

Interior

89+ Base gray seats, no rug yet, rest of interior (plastics and headliner) OK. Considering a rear seat delete. At least I have a floor mat to hide the one hole in the floor under the clutch pedal, lol.

In-Car Entertainment
None, only sound I need is the motor.
