My main issue is deciding what kind of parts I want to put into it, primarily cosmectics... those european models look so much nicer.

cosmetically, im more then happy with the car. only thing id love is a vented header panal for the intercooler, and a 968 spoiler.

i do need a limit slip diff though, man i need one.

I like yours as well, but it is the Turbo model, so essentially it is the same as the Euro model. I keep thinking of the non-turbo models with the old rubber bar out front. lol

I'm fairly sure you can find vented nose panels for $100-$200.

yup, they are fairly cheap. i just want to have the upgraded intercooler to back it up. the 968 wing is required too because above 155 mph, the rubber-foam spoiler starts to deflect.

the euro 944s had the funny rubber bumper too, only the turbo and S2s had the nice front end. i do wish i had the euro rear bumper, i can't seem to find them anywhere.

some porsche magic right here. this is a RUF porsche 911, which in the 1980s litterally poeple refused to drive on full boost because it was too powerful and too out of control fast. this is real driving -

You know, 3rd was a little rough, now that I think about it. It would grind sometimes when I wasn't paying attention. I was drag racing against my brother on my next-to-last day of ownership and I missed a 2-3 shift that cost me the race, and now I think I can blame the shifter rather than the driver. :)

Lies. Smooth and super quick shifts. Downshifting and upshifting faster than one manual on the corner to keep the power band going is amazing.

What were you racing against? The transmission in the SI is great but for some reason 3rd is a bitch. I miss the gas mileage of the 6 speed. Especially getting 13mpg/20mpg out of our 2 cars.

the clutch, and the transmission, and having direct control over the engine (rather then automatically being linked through the transmission) is the entire point to drive a great car.

When I had a Miata, I was in a Miata club. We met about once a month in the warmer months. It was kinda fun, but the club was mostly people in their fifties and sixties. Although, it was fun rolling ten Miatas deep on a winery tour through Michigan. Those vinters saw the line of brightly-colored convertibles roll up their country lanes and said to their life partners: "Shit is about to get real."

I'm sure there is an Acura TL club out there, but I doubt it would be worthwhile.

i find model specific clubs/groups tend to get a little miopic, i tend to stay away. useful to know how to work/fix/mod your car, but way to focused on one make or model. they slowly become appogetics for there make/model.

I'm a bit late, but I suppose I will join under the American flag.

I have always loved cars. Always loved how they are put together and the way they work. Always found how they are driven fascinating at a younger age. But I never really had a car I could call "Mine" until now, even though I drove my mom's 95 Nissan Sentra more than she did, my dad gave me his 97 Toyota T100, and I'm currently paying off my own 06 Ford Ranger.

But now? I have a new toy. Something that I will be proud to work on, drive in, and talk about. Now, I own a 73 Chevy Nova.

This is what she looked like on Saturday, when I picked her up. She's pretty rough. Needs an engine, trans, brakes, electrical, suspension, and some rust repair, and a new interior.

Yesterday I stripped the interior and found that the driver and passenger foot pans were rusted through. Once I fix the rust, strip the interior body paint and spray everything with rust inhibitor and some Rustoleum, I will re-carpet everything and start working on what electrical stuff I can.

I will be putting a 350 and a T10 4 speed into it with hydraulic clutch. Putting brand new suspension kits on it, along with a subframe connector to stiffen it up, power disc brakes front and rear, and eventually, at the end of it all, paint it royal blue with white stripes.

It's going to be one long, hard project, but this car will be "mine" :tup:

I will laugh as they overwhelm our enemies in a flurry of spotted banana hammocks.

Holy cow that will be a lot of work, but good luck on your project! Replacing the engine in my RX-7 was one of the hardest and yet most rewarding things I have ever done. It's easy to get discouraged in the middle of a big project like that but once you are done, the sense on accomplishment os awesome.

The ultimate truth in paintball is that the interaction between the gun and the player is far and away the largest factor in accuracy, consistency, and reliability.

And yes, Gordon is the sexiest manifestation of "to the front."

So my dad has owned a 1968 Mercedes 280SL for the past 30 years or so. It's still drivable but it definitely needs a lot of work. Every year we've been doing a touch up here and there to keep it going, but we finally decided to give it some the love it deserves. Unfortunately, my family is in the construction business, not the automotive business, so any work done would have to be done by my dad's friend/mechanic. My dad told me, "You want this car to get fixed up? You're in charge." I don't even know where to start with this. Does anyone know a legitimate website to get parts? I have a feeling getting them through Mercedes would be astronomically expensive, so maybe there are some good second hand parts out there somewhere? We're not looking to turn this into a show car, we just want it to be a driver quality car. If this turns out to be as big of a project as I think it would be, it might be more cost effective to just sell ours and look for one in better condition.

It's basically identical to this one, but it's an automatic, not a 4 Speed:

There has to be owner forums for those cars out there somewhere. RX-7 owner forums have helped me immensely.
