It was requested..(and it was a great idea).. that I start a thread of the multitude of cars/projects I am working on, much akin to Iroczgirl and 1985Jetta amongst others..
A CSB about me. I've always loved cars, and was a late bloomer, turning wrenches on them..starting out of necessity when I was homeless...living in my car (a 50 dollar Mk1 Jetta) many many years ago.
I'm a total kid of the '80's and have always loved box-flared fender cars.
Luckily, things turned around for me..and have come a long ways.
I've been able to get a few of these cars I dreamed about as a kid, back a few years ago when they were much cheaper to obtain.
1985 Audi urQuattro
Current status: in to year 6 of a nut/bolt restoration.
There's a ongoing thread of this here... https://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...ro-restoration
1991 BMW M3
Current status: tucked back in the parts room awaiting new front rotors, new wheels and tires. Over the winter I will be re-spraying the front bumper and replacing the driving light and blinker lenses. It has only been driven 10 miles this year unfortunately.
1989 Lancia Delta Intergrale HF 16v (love the long formal name of the car)
Current status: moving on to another home.
1989 VW Golf Rallye (not my photo)
Current status: just sold. Was a parts car that I bought. Has a bad block and is getting a 1.8 block out of a Corrado swapped in.
I kept the car in my name just long enough so I could say that I owned the above 4 cars all at the same time.
1987.5 Audi Coupe GT
Was a free car that I got when I bought the 4000 for parts.
Current status: runs/drives..wife wants to get into rally cross. This will be hers to beat the living snot out of.
1986 Audi 4000 quattro
Bought for parts.
Current status: Being chopped up.
2008 Ford F350
I drive a company truck 95% of the time, so the only road time this thing sees is pretty much towing a horse trailer every other weekend.
Status: just changed the oil today and replaced the right rear caliper.
1996 GMC Sierra
Status: farm truck. it was free. It as a tired small block v8 that sounds great...but it can't get out of it's own way. It as a battery drain, a cracked EM and a slow power steering leak.
Not included in this list/these updates are my wifes cars and the company truck.
Also in the garage:
An '84 Audi 4000 quattro and an '87 5000 quattro belonging to a friend.
I am helping him swap out the 10vt engine from the 5000 into the 4000.
Yes, the place is trashed.
