This is My first S1. In high school i had a S2 but did not know how awesome it was at the time and had it towed away for $25 because of fuel issues.
So after lurking in the forum for a long while before I was a member, around 2004ish, I am glad to say that now I have a real project on my hands and it should be a lot of fun.
Goal is a Restore with Auto-X and Hill climbs in mind. So clean but fast! I have a 2.0 16v that I will be tossing in ASAP, running it on MegaSquirt, N/A for now but one of the turbos sitting on my shelf will be used someday.
I hope to keep this updated... but you know how it goes.
