      No complaints, I believe these were rated at 360hp from the factory, but it is a big car. It gets out of it's own way, but I'm not going to be racing people at the stoplight.

      Interior is all really nice, nothing loose at all. There is a rain tray up in the sunroof that has come loose that I need to address, but otherwise it's all solid. Steering and suspension too, all...

      Oh yeah, I got it for a great price. The guy just needed to get rid of it.

      This weekend I completed the timing belt service so I'm less paranoid when I drive it. Old belt actually looked fine.

      Depends if you get new, refurbished, used, or have the existing trans rebuilt. Cheapest of those is a rebuild, which I'm guessing would be around 2-3k if you pull the trans yourself and bring it in....

      Have you done the trans service on a 5HP24? True it doesn't take a ton of time, but potential for catastrophe afterwards is high, even when going by the book. The fill procedure is kind of a pain,...

      Not necessarily. Have the timing belt stuff out doesn't make a trans fluid change any easier. Waiting until spring when it's warmer out will.

      And yes, the S8 Avus are 18's

      Totally.

      Here's a phone picture of my interior.

      It has an R100 tank and seat cowl that I shortened, lowered the headlight, addedclipons, trimmed the fenders and...

      I'm a mechanic by hobby, mechanical designer my profession. I've done engine swaps, transmission swaps, fuel system, cooling system, head rebuilds, a turbo rebuild, bodywork (steel only, not...

      Thanks all!

      Yes, the car has the 3 spoke wheel. Interior is in good shape, no tears or wear marks, everything is stock. Just needs some cleaning and leather conditioning. I'll put up some pictures...

      Not yet, once it's not freezing out I'll grab some, or when I detail the interior.

      I snapped it up for $5k

      From what I've seen, 5-8k for one that might need stuff. More obviously for something pristine.
    14. I picked up a fake-rich car, and I don't even care because I love it.

      It's actually not my first fake-rich car, around a year ago I purchased an E38 BMW 740iL that was in wonderful shape other than the transmission that I ended up rebuilding the valve-body on. It...

    19. A few car and motorcycle prints I've been working on

      I mainly just wanted to create a few prints to hang at work, something to liven up the blank walls in my cubicle.
