I've never had a battery in the RX7 to try.
If they had a gun that did that, I'd buy it.

- Mike is all over the place
- Mike is never going to get anything done
So two days ago my friend Jonathan showed me a Camaro he found while looking for his own project. Derrick was offered an e36 project to build for our friend Aaron for the upcoming [url="fabricatedmotorsports.com"]Fabricated Motorsports 2011 Texas Drifting Series[/url], both were in Dallas, and I have a two-car trailer.
So at 5am Sunday I got home. Got back to the shop around 3pm and this is what we got.
The guy I picked this Camaro up from was a ultra-nice guy. Check this out, he bought it to build for is SON IN LAW. Talk about awesome.
Story on the car was a friend of his located it after a local owner of a salvage yard died in Nowhereville, West Texas, an estate sale was had, and this Camaro was supposedly in a building he had for projects that were his own, and it just sat for about 20 years. It honestly has no rust on it. The guy told me over the phone that the 1st person who actually saw the car would buy it, and he was 100% honest. There is a little bit of bondo in some random places but the car is super solid. Its also a 70 so has the lower floorpans on the rear seat.
This will get me by since the other Camaro is tied up with the BS the sandblasting place tried to pull, so now I can just take them to court and use the legal system to give them the running into the ground they deserve on my time, since I'm in no hurry to get the Camaro back from them now.
Basically its like this.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IhahJVkehUc

Anyways, heres the gameplan. Found out I'm super lucky and get to go to SEMA this year, as well as [url="http://www.xtremedriftcircuit.com/"]XDC Phoenix[/url]. So I'm going to attempt to do these things before SEMA.
-Finish the new LS1 S13 suspension, and fabrication, and attach all body parts to where it just needs a cage, and drivetrain. Push outside, install car cover.
-Strip parts off of Rx7 I picked up for donor engines for the Brat, then sell.
- Get Camaro to status of just needing a drivetrain and rollcage
- Build engine that runs on both rotors for the Brat
Want to get all this done by December, then I'll go from there depending on how much work I can do to earn some money between now and then. We've also got an e36 LS1 project for the 2011 Texas Series, and some other new stuff that will be popping up. My friend Jonathan also FINALLY got a project car, went with him tonight and we picked up an 85 mustang GT that is now chillin at the shop, gonna help him build that up, which I'm also excited about because I've always wanted to play with building up a Fox, and he is pretty excited about doing it. Plus its always fun to help one your friends get into cars.
On a side note, my new trailer tows AWESOME with the gooseneck and 3 axles.
So if you're still reading, heres what you're probably thinking now
-Mike is really all over the place
-Mike is never going to finish anything
-Don't mess with Texas.
