More Stuff To Come!!!
Just a little history:
This was my first car! I purchased it in 1978 when it was two years old and I was a driving teen (now if feel old). The car was originally silver.
This car now (in the pictures) was
complete tear down restoration that took me about 2-3 years (and
a marriage) for me to do. For the most part all on my own.
I did the tear down to bear metal, metal fabrication / repair, body work and paint. Then when on to build a 200 plus HP 20R motor.
The restoration was completed in 1990.
I am currently working on the car
over the winter. I will be putting in my new head
accent rings in
for a tricked out aggressive look. New bigger monster 50 mm side draft carburetors on a new .80 over bore 20R block with 10.7 compression pistons and a few more tricks I will list soon. The 50 mm monster carbs should be interesting alone to say the least, to see how much more power they will make over my old 44 mm Mikuni carbs.
The car will be ready again come the
warmer weather of spring 2008. So look out Honda
Look for more updates and pictures soon!!!
