    Robo is the proud owner of my 93 EGT, I cannot express how happy I am that a friend and fellow Scort lover is the new owner of my ride....I know he will enjoy and have loads of fun in that fun car


    Congrats

    Thank you Mike and Scott Mike tells me that I owe you a big thank you for mentioning my name when the car was up on the chopping block. The car is great and I am already starting to think of how to put my own twist on it. I am thinking flat black beacause I am a sucker for flat black cars. Right now I am mainly concerned with keeping it on the road until I can get some cash together to order up the BPT for it and doing whatever I can to it for a decent price. Paint will probably be in the works by next spring. Right now I am trying to get all the interior back to stock with the parts car I have in my back garage. I already had to pull the shifter out of it to get the shifter tight. Nothing you shouldnt expect when a car almost has 200k miles on the clock. I will keep everyone updated with the progress of the car. Again thank you Mike and Scott. Peace Jeremiah

    Just an update on the car. I almost have the interior back to stock and as we speak I am bringing the drip rails in the roof back. Also I am going to be fixing/replacing the winglets on the back of the car and removing all the filler from the sideskirts and the winglets on the car. After that I plan on taking it and getting a good flat black paint put on it either that or a flat deep forest green. Havnt really decided yet. Ill keep everyone update.

    Another update on the car. Today I went to the junkyard and found another early style three piece wing. I didnt like the way the side parts were mounted so I snagged the whole wing and all the mounting hardware and parts and got to town. Removed all the bondo and the side parts of the wing and reinstalled the stuff I got from the junkyard. Looks great and its on there good and tight too. I am really suprising myself with the ability to be able to do body work. I hate body work and usually dont have the patience for it. Well more to come im sure because I am having too much fun working on this car. I have some new wheels lined up right now. Thinking about going with some Black 15x6.5 Konig Minuz. They weigh in at 10.6 lbs a piece and should heighten the looks of the car that much more. I have already decided on a paint scheme too. I am thinking Olive Drab Green Flat of course. I think it will pop with the black wheels and it will be different looking. Until next time Jeremiah.

    Well another update to the updates. The interior is fully back to stock again. I just ordered some wheels I ended up going with Black 15x6.5 Konig Heliums. They weigh in at 10.6 lbs a piece and I think they will set the car off nicely. The car is coming along nicely and once I get the money saved up I plan on ordering the BPT swap and get going on that after I find another daily driver.

    Well I got my tires today and they are mounted on the wheels. I was gonna have them mounted on the car but I decided to wait on the Hub Centric rings to come in just in case. I went to go buy some locking lugs but on my way out of the store not finding any I liked I noticed one of my lugs was sheered off flush with the wheel. So home I went and grabbed the hub off of my parts car to swap it out with. What a pain in the ass that was but it is done now and I have 4 lugs on all 4 corners again. Pics soon to come once the wheels get put on which should be some time this week. Peace Jeremiah

    Hey guys! I haven't been in this area for a long while and wanted to see what was up. Great looking wheels Robo! I'm glad you ended up with the car instead of somebody who didn't know what they had. Some punk kid would have trashed the GT to shreds. Have been really busy here at work and haven't had time to do much on the car. If everything goes to plan, I will be at a new job next month. I won't be home as much anymore, so a lot of things to the car and the meets will be halted for me. I will keep you guys posted on what is happening. Again, great work on the GT Robo, can't wait to see her fully finished to your specs.

    Well all is well with the GT other than I launched a Rod through the block. Put a nice hole in my radiator. Good times lol. Wasnt even doing anything stupid with the car. No big deal though, now I have an excuse to put the BPT into it.
