Adirondack Autosports : The Rattle Wagon
So Now that TB is a gonner, and reading through some of the OT stuff, I'm going to make my Build threads home here.

I started with a 92 245 with 282K on it and a rod through the side of the block of it's second engine. My goal was to build a car i could have fun with and go drifting with. I bought the car for $300 off a friend that was going to scrap it out, But he had given me the original engine awhile back as somthing to mess around with as it just had a blown head gasket. So I decided I might as well buy the whole car off him.

This is seriously how we towed it back to my house about a year ago.

I bought a 93 B230F off of a guy in Albany for $150, and through ALL of the gaskets at it.

Then we decided to paint it. Good ol' Rustoleum Camoflage Hunter Green

So After getting it running, and registering it, I did the pre 85 front end conversion.

So anyways, The first day I had it on the road, It started leaking gas. I figured it was the tank, and that it would go away when it leaked down to that point, but no. It got worse by the end of the day, like It was a waterfall of gasoline by the end of the day, So I got it back, rather quickly, and found the culprit was the fuel tank sender lines were cracked at the top pouring gas out of the lines. I touched one of them and it fell off. So It was a quick SOS to FCP for a fuel tank pump.... Got it the day before I had to drive ten hours back to Ohio.... So I put it in, and drove an hour down to Albany, NY for a quick shakedown, and it did very well.

The rest area in Pensylvania at the NYS border line, The next day..... Found I was leaking a little coolant, and found I have broken a Coolant hose clamp. A quick stop at the truck stop got me back on the road in twenty minutes.

I drove it to Carlisle this year, and picked up some Kalphenke coilovers. Heres a shot with only the backs in, completely slammed out.

ALSO I have some pictures of the original engine, which is getting a 16V swap.
