Now that the 83 Civic is done, it was time to find a new project car. I found this car an hour from my house, it hasn't run in 20 years. The last guy pulled the motor but then gave up. Nice thing is that it has mostly original paint and is only a little bubbly in the rockers. I'll start saving my money, and in a few years get the engine rebuilt by Formula H. In the meantime I'll keep watching the Jay Leno S600 video.

If it turns out as nice as your Civic, it will be an amazing car!! Don't you love the SOUND of Leno's S600? My god, I want my car to scream like that! :shock:

Nice project Ken.

Is that the car with the hard plastic dash that was at the gathering a couple years ago?

Very nice Ken!

I think you'll need to sell me some of your '83 Civic exterior trim to fund the project!

Keep us posted on progress.

Man I've been looking for a S600 for years and it has been a while since I've seen one in that kind of shape. I bet it wasn't cheap!
