I'm keeping my Escort till either I wreck it beyond belief or I die. Then I'll prolly be buried in it. Did you see my parts list? I'm gonna spend a small fortune on the engine and transmission itself. :!:

Rumour has it that the late Peter Sellers' mini is buried on Hampstead Heath (London). He's not in it though! :lol:

I didn't read all the way through it...just kinda skimmed the pics...but I wonder if he did what so many pros do and replace the standard fuel lines and fittings with real steel braided lines and aeroquip fittings? I feel for him and the money he spent, but I noticed alot of things he was kinda naive about....I am going to undertake a build of the 93GT as soon as I finish my current project....I already know that I will be spending around 10,000 in parts and supplies...all my labor is free....with the exception of the machine shop...being a mechanic has some advantages...it's going to be fun...plus I plan on learning the fine art of bodywork during some evening classes...and hope to be able to do my own work when the rest of the car is done....

This is what happens when you have too much free time, too much money, and no women.

Still, I admire his persistence in this project. If I saw a project like that on fire, I'd just scream hail mary and jump in the flaming car and die.

He would have been money ahead and just buried the Integra and gotten an Escort. What a moron. Does all that work and the thing catches on fire. Maybe that was a sign?

:( I purposely didn't comment - just posted the link - wanted to see what the Honda Haters on this site would say. Just looking at the pics and reading what text there was, gave me the impression he had just shrugged his shoulders and started again - such tenacity - can't believe it was at all that way.

I totally agree with you siragan - I would have done the same as you but would probably have said something other than "hail mary!!" :lol:

I don't think even some of the most devout Honda Haters could hate a lovingly rebuilt J-Spec TypeR Integra. It's all the wannabes in their hondas that most Honda Haters hate.

bummer of a fire no matter what car it happens to... putting a high fuel pressure on a rubber line though is pretty universally stupid.

I'm not to sure about taking a grinder to a connecting rod!?!?!! I'd want it balaned nicely... I doubt he had the equipment to do that!

honda haters, honda lovers, I don't give a **** who you are, what this guy did was simply amazing. You have GOT to give him props for that. The time, money, and effort invested are evident of seemingly infinite either passionate or dimented motivation.

And if you saw that small video clip, the guy says something like "yippity" or "hey buddy" when the car starts up. Um... I dunno if he was dropped on his head or he's had a few too many beers, but it's kinda creepy to say the least.
