The drivers side from when I got side-swipped is still Fukked up, ASSSH0LE. Anyways, that's why there are no drivers side pics.







I hope I haven't put these pics up before. These are actually from may. I have nothing else to this thing since then.

And for everyone that didn't think it would stay together, I drove this car 1500 miles to south Texas and back and it did just fine. No crazy body twist, no collapsing of subframe, and still no tightening at the door latches.

I am so broke right now and with school starting back I don't have time to work and go to class. So money is tight. Hopefully before it starts getting cold I will have at least the door and fender fixed.

I call BS! It's way to hot to be driving around with a vert in this Texas heat right now.

Hahaha that's what I thought before I left, so I drove down there and back at night. Very fun drive. The nights were absolutely perfect.

Damn, that almost looks like it should have been a factory option! And what wheels are those, they look sweet!

I didn't go to SPI. I went to Corpus Christi. I'm not a fan of SPI. Too busy.

The hatch is welded shut for now. I'm still not exactly sure what I wanna do with it. I have an idea but haven't thoroughly thought it through.

The wheels are Elbrus somethings. I don't know exactly.

Thanks for the comments.

Thanks for the comments guys.

From Stillwater to Rockport TX (which is 30 miles north of Corpus Christi) is 625 miles and I have done it in 9 and a half hours. That is very fast though. Average should take probably 10 and a half or 11. I had 1250 miles of highway averaging 28 mpg. I would say around 120 bucks in gas on the highway.

It is soon to have a roll cage in it. I plan on putting a convertible Mustang type roll bar going over the back of the front seats.

There is no support on the A-pillar that isn't factory. These car were built very strong. I can sit in the seat and lift myself up by the top of the windshield and I'm not a small person.
