    Looking for a Ford or Chevette based kit. Running would be nice. Needing some finishing is ok too. Something in the 4 to 6 K range. Something other than white is a plus! 🙂

    Good to have you back – I will be watching for one for you.

    How is the MGB doing?

    Rick just got a pile of TD body parts from Wayne here local ( closing down his VW shop ) but it was a rear engine kit.

    I will let Rick tell us his plans when the time comes.

    Hey Dale – finished the MGB and sold it. Back to looking for a TD. I have looked at restoring an original but I keep coming back to the thought of wanting something with more modern running gear. Thanks for adding a pair of eyes to my search. I know how resourceful you are!

    I may have found one. It’s up in Michigan.  I would post a pic here but I can’t figure out how to do it. I added a few pics of it under my profile. It’s the silver one.

    That rig looks fantastic at first glance. Any issues or just buy and drive? Is there a turbo hiding in there?

    Looks like it sits a little high in the back but good for big boys…

    Yes, a turbo. 1986 ford svo 2.3 out of a Mustang. It’s a driver. I am sure I can find something to do on it.

    Looks like 175- 200 HP?

    <p style=”text-align: right;”>Yes, I believe that is the HP rating.  Certainly won’t need all of it to move the TD. :-)</p>

    I always wanted to see a turbo’d one of these. Even nagged Bill to do that instead of throwing the 302 in his. Hope I can see this one up close in a few months!

    Carlisle is scheduled for the normal weekend. The Speedster Owners Club is pondering out next move. Planning to come to a decision early March.

    I’m leaning yes, but much depends on the vaccine rollout and how the mutations carry. This thing is in no way slowing down, and half a million dead is nothing to, well, sneeze at.
