Porsche 550 Spyder replica (Beck). Soon anyway...currently putting the engine back together.

After that one, there's an '86 MR2, getting headers, a light flywheel, dual Dellorto side-draft 2bbls and a 2-inch lowering job, with about 400 pounds taken out.

Then to finish the '74 Porsche 911 Targa-based, 911 Speedster widebody semi-replica (chopped windshield and turtledeck). Steel 930 flares, Weber 40IDA-3 carbs, headers and again, as much weight taken out as possible, and as low as possible.

The '86 Jag XJ-6 is running again, but an iron LS engine is starting to look pretty good for a swap. Already did a 700R4 gearbox, and it made a world of difference.

Both GM trucks are still "resting".

The reason why I haven't been building, my daily driver 1966 Corvair Monza, 110 hp and 4-speed.

To do list:

- Build engine

- Custom interior

- Custom spoilers and bodywork

- Rebuild just about everything

- Paint and powdercoating

Lots of work but definitely worth it

Love Corvairs, screw Nader! My grandfather had a Corvair wagon, and last year a girl had a turbo spyder at the track.

As Jonathan posted above, there is already an existing 91 page thread on this topic. I don't think we need another one.
