    Background:
    I hitch hiked to denver with 2k in my pocket to buy her.
    I paid 1k and drove her two miles to have the engine sieze in an intersection, coincidentally frying the clutch.
    I got towed on a tow strap at 9pm with no lights "dead battery" from flashers being on all day waiting for my friend to show up.
    Anyways I was towed from Denver over 300 miles to rifle colorado on a tow strap with no power.
    The morning after I tore the motor out for inspection and found the rod bearings for cylinder #3 literally laid over each other and welded together...
    For the next six months I was rebuilding the engine with new parts all around.
    I want her to be a show car eventually because the car went through so much crap.
    Also a 420a RS show car would be reliable and fun until the GSX is running how I want.
