Just thought you guys might like to see what keeps me from getting the Laurel back on the road. I do more work on other peoples cars than I do on my own.

Rossion... Had to fix a fuel tank leak in this one, talk about a PITA
Image

I built this car about... crap... 20 years ago. My first fuel injected swap. 1987 Volvo 780 with a 1993 5.0 drivetrain
Image
Image

A Supercharged E46 M3 and a soon to be 2JZGTE powered E36M3.
Image

A couple FJ80 Landcruiser swaps I have completed or am currently working on. I have quite a few all with GM powertrains. Everything from old school 350's and 454's to the new Atlas 5 and 6 cylinders. The 5cylinder is my favorite.
Image
Image

1987 Suzuki Samurai I bought and fixed a few things... now for sale
Image

A little fiberglass work on an Altered.
Image

Fabbed a custom intake for a badass WRX wagon.
Image

We built this Supra for our shop car a few years back.
Image
Image
Image

RHD Sil80
Image

Supercharged S2000.
Image

This was my 1980 635csi, it ran a 745 turbo motor. Best 1/4 was 12.0 at 120 on the 20" street tires. We had it on the dyno but the clutch let go at 495 foot pounds of torque. It was a locomotive.
Image

My favorite car. E39 M5, this one has many upgrades. Nothing like carrying 4 of your friends at 200mph plus.
Image
Image

The famous Billy.. well famous to us. Two of us raced this for 3 years.

Thats an awesome 780. I thought about doing the same swap on mine, but I ended up sticking with the turbo 4 cylinder engine.

The Bride seats definitely took it over the top. American engine, Swedish car, Japanese seats. Where do you park it at a car show? :mrgreen:

I do like diversity.
I think Ford actually owned Volvo when I did the swap so does that count?
The Brides were in a M3 before they ended up in the Volvo. :)
