Summer's car "rebuild".
Summer's 16th birthday present, 78 Mustang II Coupe.
She likes old cars, we didn't want anything with HP as a first car, plus not a "big" car either with C pillar blind spot. That little Mustang was about the only choice to find something dirt cheap, fixable and looks classic.
Nothing too fancy in the refreshing, this car will end up on a highschool parking lot.
Rebuild the little 2.3L engine, great on gas, 28-30 MPG on the highway. Block 60 over.
For maximum grip upgraded the 13" to Front 205/55R15, Rear 215/60R15 sitting on Basset D hole Wheels.
Primer sealer/filler/urethane paint is PPG. Yellow is 2010 Camaro single stage urethane. Clear coat is "Montana".
Muffler is Flomaster Super 44, no drone sounds ok, pretty quiet.
Music : The Crystal Method, High Roller - Album" Vegas".

Rebuilding a falcon coupe
Full Of Rust and Dirt (WAS past tence...)
The start of the long journey that is classic car rebuilding.. This was started in 1998 and is by no means finished.. Have got it painted and assembled but still a long way to go. I have owned this car since I was
18 and it had a hard life. I ended up buying
an XC ex-police interceptor (see other uploads) but one day will get it powered up under its own steam...
Honda Civic Rebirth
My 1991 Honda Civic hatchback rebuild. The car was in really bad shape and desperately needed TLC, so I went ahead and restored her from scratch with the help of a few buddies who run a shop. The whole process took about 9 months, hence 'The Rebirth' title which seems to go along well like it's a new born baby.
The motor is B16A with: CTR pistons, full Omni valvetrain, CAT cams, ITR IM, Mild P&P head, H22A injectors, OBD1 converted, and stock B16A header. The Exhaust is Apexi WS2. The actual numbers at the dynapack are pretty embarrassing (I was just trying to get her to run efficiently for the emissions test, which she passed no problem). I have no idea what this motor is capable of. I'll post more vids once she's fully tuned. Props to Nick at Teknotik for the tuning.
*Parts alone for this project costed about $5K to 6K. I did the labor with the help of my buddies and bodywork was done by an affiliate. So I spent roughly $10K in total. I plan to keep this car forever so I don't see 10K as much money at all.
