    hamrmech is lurking here

    I'm robert, from colfax. Black 83 capri. I like junk automobiles, you know, ones that don't run right, or start, leak everything, and are in constant need of maintenance.

    Its stock.

    the owner of batts auto glass died years ago. I used to do burnouts in front of his shop, and he'd retaliate in front of my house. he had cooler cars. like a pro street canary-yellow 68 camaro with no fenders and a chromed big block packing a tunnel ram with two carbs. It did a burnout like that was its only job in life.

    I miss that guy, Its good to have decent enemies.
    I think the garage/barn and everything is gone now. the 08 floods finished the place off.

    i'm pretty sure its a v8, whatever passes for an 83 5.0 engine. two barrel with a 4 speed manual transmission. think it was advertised at 150 horse when new? Someone know? 30 plus years havent been kind to her, probably less than 100hp at the crankshaft now..



    wouldn't break traction in an ice storm now.
    so yeah, anyone I might get alongside might have to give me a head start..
