      Dude. You do realize that most of New York state has nothing in common with NYC? And that Ontario County is pretty conservative?

      But keep on railing against the "tards".

      I guess I've never looked at a Boxster from that angle. I think I finally "get" it. It looks so good from down there!

      Well I'm not him, but my friend has owned two of them. The casting problems afflicted (as far as I remember) only the initial round of heads? If he's looking at later cars, they will not have the bad...

      I'd like to believe that a certain Canadian who has the internet and is particularly adept at working with Volkswagen W-format engines is right at this very moment stuffing the engine into the back...

      It's not like the 350SDL got the nickname, "Rod Bender" for no reason. And I know what you're saying, "But rebuild 500 miles ago!" I mean, that's great and all but...

      So wait, what went wrong?

      Anyway, my feeling? Do it yourself if you can. I think that a lot of things in the auto-maintenance world get puffed up to be these unconquerable feats and they just...

      The first diesel 124's weren't until '87 if I remember correctly. $6,000 will buy you a very nice late W124 diesel which I think would be by far the best option for a daily-driven car. There is...

      I despise big wheels and rubberband tires, but that's my only gripe.

      New Hampshire doesn't title vehicles that are over 15 years older, right? How does that work at the scrapyard? Do you give them your last registration card or something?

      I contributed nothing to this thread or build and yet I feel an enormous sense of accomplishment just seeing those stripes...

      Congratulations!

      People will steal literally anything. Anything.

      I know everyone is falling all over themselves to talk **** on this dude's RALLYCROSS car but come on, quit being naive.

      A bicycle. An old VW IDI turbodiesel. Oh and an old GM diesel and an old Mercedes diesel. A nearby stockpile of 5k gallons of B50 and B100.

      Well geeze....

      After typing all that out I thought to myself, "I really ought to confirm this somehow, right?" and then was like, "duh, disconnect the boost hose from the intake and run it N/A."...

      Alright, so I spent some time really getting into this car and here are my new, improved, more accurate observations:

      1. No way has the fuel screw been messed with. That bad-boy isn't going...

      It's a turbodiesel!

      I'd read about the fuel screw before and in fact my friend who is a real diesel guy mentioned that off the bat. The only reason I didn't really give that more thought is that the anti-tamper collar...

      Anyway, I bought this Quantum off a kid who didn't really know anything at all...

      A guy I know inherited one when his dad died in unknown condition. I forgot that they have TRX tires, what a pain... I think he sold it on flat tires and in non-running condition for somewhere in the...
