Rats. I guess it's not a surprise, but I'm sorry to see this
project go.

I'd love to finish it, if I had the space.

Sounds like you're replacing it with a car that runs though, eh?
Can't argue with that logic.

Oh, and what's with the orange usernames? I clearly haven't been
spending enough time here, I have no idea what's going on.

It's optional Chaos and Mayhem color for those that have donated this fundraising cycle.

As far as the V8 car goes, I may just store it. Not seeing a lot of interest, and I just don't have time to part it out. We'll see.

My recently balanced driveshaft has turned my former slight shimmy into a paint mixer level shake at certain rpms, so I'm out too I'm afraid.

Should be stripping a 1990 244 this coming Sunday - keeps getting delayed but I am hopeful it will happen this time - let me know if you might want the short block from this car -pretty sure we will not keep it after removing the head, water pump, etc.

You're missing a [ right before the "QUOTE]" bit, it seems.
