    Default 79 coupe build - Red Racer

    I posted some of this in my introduction thread, but figured I'd share it here as a proper build thread. Be patient, this is going to take a while

    The car is a 1979 coupe. It was just about as plain and basic as they came. I bought it back in 1989 to build into a semi raceable car. The original 2.3L had put a piston through a cylinder wall, so the car was a non runner and was less than clean. The good part was, the gal who had owned it had it in the southern US for much of it's life for university so the rust was minimal.

    Life was simple, I was single, working full time as a mechanic and lived in my parents basement. The car project seemed like a great way to blow my spending money and occupy my weekends and nights. Then life got more complicated.
