I could put 2 Ls motors under that hood. Now I can set the engine and trans in the Supra and work on mounts. All I need is shop space

The Supra is gonna sit for a while now. Im slowly plugging away at the Impala. Maybe I can get that thing out of the barn and sold next summer. >> Ive been saying that for about 10 years now. I want to start taking care of some things on the plow truck soon. "Winters Coming" And im hoping to buy another dd soon as ive been without my Z26 for about a year. I put $1200 winter tires under my tahoe and I hate having to daily it on rainy days and all winter long.

Impala update!
Ya I didn't get much done on the Impala this year. But progress is progress. Grill is painted and installed. Running out of chrome to hang so thats good. The fastener/ hardware venders at swap meets have been a life saver especially as there can be 6 variants of the same clip and I don't know the damn difference.

Supra Update!!!
The Supras gettin a grey interior conversion for Xmas. A guy off Clist had been parting out Mk3s for 12 years. I should have every piece now including a nice dash, steering wheel, seats, door panels, head liner, carpet stay, power drivers seat track, 2 clusters, front bumper, JDM rear filler panel, and the 3 piece turbo wing <<about 2-3 bills on ebay

Also I finally got the plow truck done. New exhaust manifold 3 ear flanges and studs, gaskets. Found bad ball joints on the front steering bar and snapped the brake bleeders off both front calipers. New calipers were cheep though.
I bought myself a new dd too.

It was hard to find this combo. I was doing nationwide searches weekly for most of this year. found it in Virginia
I can remember staring at one of these at the Chicago auto show for like 15min when they first came out. I can't get over the body lines on this car.

Sweet updates!

Did you guys find a new house / shop yet?

My better half has a '14 IS350 F Sport. I'm not sure if it has the 6 speed or 8 speed in it - I'll have to check that out.

We did. We are just east of Madison now. We have a barn, and its full already. I don't like the barn. Im gonna have to put together a real plan to build a shop some day.

I have found that Rwd IS3s are all 8A and Awds are all 6A at least for 14-16'

Lots of irons in the fire, looks familiar! I'm sure that Lexus would be fun at the track day at Bfest.

Nice - her IS is RWD - so looks like it has an 8 speed.

Its been a good car so far - previous owner killed the front brakes in 20k though. I installed a set of Power Stop complete brake kit up front - and it stops really nice and no longer has that terrible brake dust that the Toyota pads through out.

Her car also just ate an 02 sensor at 40k miles - so that might be something to look out for.

Like Eric said - we all have wayyyy too many projects.

I supercharged my SS sedan this year - and now I'm pulling the transaxle out of the Corvette - fun times! :runsies:

This would be fun at the track day. It would be nice to see how it does at speed and really learn the car.
I really like the handling and ride quality.

Ya they put new Bosch pads and front rotors on this before it went on the lot. Super sharp brakes!
The AWD I test drove surprised me. You don't loose much over all in the quarter or in milage but all the critics say the RWD is the only way to go. In Sport+ and manual shift mode it will hold the gear and let you smack the limiter.
