That’s what I was thinking too. I’ve always had it planned in the back of my mind.
I need to get my engine hoist from storage.
I pulled the TMIC and popped the fork, it does appear to be the TOB. Hard to confirm as there isn’t a whole lot to look at. But something is definitely going on. I suppose I should stop napping and start working again lol

My Sparco 323 in the poop car was the most ideal steering wheel IMO.

Being a passionate car enthusiast who attended the track every week to watch, I wanted to have a car that I could drive around and turn heads, but also...
