Cars 2 porsche 356 replicas and real

when the time comes that I have a new house with uber garage space, I will build one clean right hand drive replica.

My shovel project

after a week or 2, rode it like this to find the bugs,. 1st bug was transmission alignment, couldn't keep it straight. 2nd was a frame crack by the motor mount.

after getting it home and swapping out some parts, it was ridable but a little sketchy. stepping on the brake was like a sponge

these are the pictures the guy sent me of said chopper

I miss my slow unreliable rusty wrangler

2.5l 5spd 4wd, 3 seats, 2 guages and a radio. There were a ton of electrical problems when I got the jeep so every once in a while it would leave me stranded, those fusable links sucked. otherwise it was a strong runner, great around the neighbor hood and on the trail, not so hot on the highway but at least the wind was in your hair, always fun without the roof and doors, pop the windshield down for the go cart feel but don't let the fuzz catch ya. replaced it with a SAAB 93 turbo with manual transmission, heated leather seats, etc. fun to hear the turbo scream, but definitely not as fun and little kids don't point and wave...
