You need a set of snow tires so you can go out and do donuts in that driveway!

The ice finally melted and I decided to take the car up the road. It ran well despite being down on power. The front struts are without a doubt completely blown, so no more than a half of a mile ride for me. Took some pics while I let the car air out and sit outside before returning it to the garage to continue nibbling away at the smaller stuff before I replace the engine. Took some pics before I put the car away. Figured I hadn't taken many of the car out of the garage and no passenger side interior pics:

Not much progress has been made on the car as of late. Saving for a seal kit as the engine is well on its way out. It still runs and drives but as soon as normal operating temperature is reached, the engine stalls. I have an RCTV5 that I'll use to obtain compression numbers off of before I pull the engine. Its been so cold out and the car has been outside that I haven't gotten much done to it lately. I can't see parking either of my other 8's outside right now.

Nothing much lately. I've been busy with customer restorations and repairs and I haven't had time to get the Nordic Green GT started. Kinda sucks really as I was hopping to put and engine in it by now.
