Back for more, my 65 CORSA clone. I've had all the engine tins powder coated and blocked off the fresh air hose with DaveMotohead's kit for a cleaner looking engine compartment. Image
Getting close to cutting over to Ray Sedman's DIS then eventually to his EFI as well. I've also replaced most of the rubber trim and next on the docket is Clark's molded carpet kit, which may now have to wait after the missus spent 3 days in the hospital to end the year.

Degreeing the cam:

Yes, it's really an ISKY 280. Image

Added some hidden speakers and cleaned up the look of the rear package area behind the back seat. Seats have fabric centers for comfort in the hot summer months.

No offense intended! Stocko wacko is the term I've seen used here and other forums for the guys that prefer to keep their cars as original as possible. There is certainly nothing wrong with that and I appreciate good, original cars. I also see customs that make me want to puke. My personal preference for any car that I own is to tweak it to my liking to suit my taste and driving style. Different strokes for different folks :tu:

Hi, How do you 'vote"? This is where to "Enter" but I don't see anywhere to "vote". Is there a different link to vote or where are the radio buttons to vote?
Thanks

The voting will begin as soon as ten vehicles are entered or on the 1st of the month.
