I have lost a great deal of interest in the T-Rex over the years, but I would still buy one if the price was right.

Like your Sparrow, I want to build a 4G Eclipse. I still to this day have never seen one live up to the true potential of the platform, and that sickens me. I have project plans and engineering drawings done up for my dream and everything. If only I had the time...

I think that my next DD will be an R51 Pathfinder. The more I read about this truck, the more I like it. If you don't drive like an ********* ****, you can reasonably expect to see 20+ MPG on the highway...AND it will tow 6,000 pounds (body on frame construction). That is unreal.

I came up with it before seeing Goldmember, but yes I do like his.

I don't know much about the newer pathfinders.


My project list is basically:
The Guzzi Captain Catania bike.
1967 El Camino with modern Chevy FI motor, bags in the back, discs, to replace my pickup as DD.
Build a unicorn body for my XR650R.
Blown big block on a small jet boat, over the transom exhaust, intake with the little spinning wheels.
Maybe my Sparrowbusa, or maybe just put a better battery in a normal one. The long frame looks a lot dumber in the mockup than it did in my head.
1969 big hole head Boss 302 Trans Am conversion.
930 racecar. This was kind of realistic when they were 30k and total build was 150-200k, but now a decent donor is 100k+...

There are a bunch more that are not as involved, like finally buttoning up my Husky and adding the fuel computer, but those are the big ones.



I mean a unicorn I ride, not one of those humping the butt stupid ones people do. Kind of like this, but more of a realistic unicorn and on a supermoto. And pink. With rainbow hair and little blue and white stars and moons on it's back hips.

I just found an AMC Rambler. I have no job and no money. I'll have to talk to my dad and see if he's interested.

Also 100 posts would probably cover a month.

I've resigned myself to "winning" APW9

We are looking for a design engineer. It's not a bad deal if you don't mind not actually doing any engineering, ignoring best practices and working at a break neck pace with a nearly limitless budget.
