Let the games begin. Thanks to Todd, the car is now in my garage and the crashed rat X has gone to my secret storage lot. The guy I bought this 83 from was planning to install a new Fiat 500 drive train but said he did drive it around the yard with the stock motor. Initial inspection shows the thermostat housing laying on the bell housing and the heater hose disconnected from the pipe on the water pump so it's safe to assume if he drove it, it was an air cooled motor at that point! I decided at that point just to swap out this motor and install the motor/trans from the rat but guys, I'm 70 and just too tired to do a motor swap at this point. Think I'll just remove the FI stuff and stock exhaust and install my 34 DATR and header and see what shape this motor and trans are in. If they check out healthy I'll leave them in. It doesn't help that I picked up some cold bug two days ago (my doctor calls it the "crud") and I'm not working at peak efficiency at the moment. Ed wants the interior (see my post in tech about stuck seats). I originally thought the car was red but now realize it must be a two tone orange over black. The extra black around the flares was just some paint I threw on to protect some raw metal from the body work. At this point I have no idea what the color will be. Hardest decision will be what wheels/tires to use. Looks like project 124 spider gets kicked back six months or so.
