The old pPlague made its last trip cross country in 2006... Its been sitting static every since and had many parts cannibalized off it.. I decided that we'd get it back on the road for the spring so here are a few pics... Its being sprayed this week!

Got the windows installed today... Next comes putting the gearbox back in then addressing some suspension upgrades.


Looks like I am gonna slid the engine in it that I was going to use for my 356, its an 84X96 MassIVe power plant making 220HP... The 356 is coming along so bad ass that I have almost decided to bolt a Turbo TIV into it.

Something to make it launch better :-)
If you look closely you'll see that window isn't glass.
