10,000 and still counting

Nope, not RPM. I wish.

Tax time makes you do weird things, so I decided to count up the receipts for the car so far. Yep, $10,000 spent on a $500 car. Amazing that I could do that. If I had known, I might have pulled the plug a while back. Oh well, it's done and it's time to go racing with just a few more bugs to work out. It runs, drove it down the street.

Here's what I gots:
'73 tub, stock but somewhat flared fenders
Cage and Momo seat, Crow belts, Momo wheel
Aluminum dash with VDO guages, alum door panels
15 x 7 BBS rims, tires not chosen yet
911 front end with S brakes, 22mm hollow bars and Konis, Pagid orange pads
911 vented rears with a T in the line
European Motorworks 4 into 1 open header
9.5:1 Keith Black 96mm, 44 x 38 SS valves, 40mm IDFs
Close ratio tranny w/ open diff
916 front and rear FG bumpers and FG rear trunk w/ spoiler, GT engine grille
Artic silver paint on top side, red Hammerite underneath, meter grey interior
Everything is new or rebuilt

Where'd the money go?
