And the 74 would be that nice hot rod car to play with and the Targa would be the tour car.
I understand the open car appeal, especially from some one who lives and drives in the mountains, so much of the view is blocked by the top of a closed car.
I did buy a targa.
Advice on value: rusty, bastardized '75 Targa junk show

And while it's a running driving car it's also a rust and paint project. So the current plan is this WTT ad I've got out there. Maybe someone will come forward with something interesting that's nicer and we can work something out on the 86 without too much brain damage. Barring that, the 86 will get a good once over and go to BaT right about the time the snow melts.

I forgot about that, Nice.
I am beginning to understand the method. Always moving tell the pieces fit.
I sure do that.
And it is fun to sample along the way.

There is definitely a method to my madness, even if it's a convoluted one. I'm slowly getting the 74 stripped down enough to send it off to get the front a-arm mounts and surrounding area rust repaired. Once it's out of the garage, the 75 comes in to have the 2.2E engine replaced with the 83SC engine I have out in the barn. And then I drive it for the summer while I wait to see what happens next.

I've thought about that. But I figure if I offer enough transparency in the details of the ad people will understand that it's not a perfect car, but there's also a little bit about it that is special. I know opinions mean nothing until the gavel falls, but my personal opinion is that the color might be worth a $10k bump. It's not for everyone, but for the guys who it makes their manly parts tingle? A couple guys could get into it over the car and I could do well as a result.

Perhaps we should pepper him with well thought out jibes? Rawknee?

Maybe it would be helpful if I posted comments over there, such as, "Isn't that a flood car recovery - Katrina, correct?", "I heard that at least 500 rats fornicated in the interior - true?", etc. Sounds like a plan?!?!

I'm in! But does the fact I won't have a running driving car for two-three years matter?
And what If I back-date it?
If that's ok I'll take #008. That way I'll be right after Matt like all my posts. And it's my son's number.

Hell, it’s gonna take me a year to build my engine. Consulted with Steve W today and will be sending him my heads and rotating bits before month’s end. In the meantime I’ve got to strip the front end, including gas tank and fenders so I can have the rust work done.
