    Background:
    I bought this car for about $3300 and it ran and drove a couple hours home to my apartment. Beyond this, it has been unreliable and has had the battery, ignition fuse replaced 3 times, and soon to go into the shop to trace the electrical short.
    My main plans are to bring it back to a semi-reliable street car, after which, maybe make 300hp. Anything beyond this is just wishful thinking.
