Car restoration, or stories. WOOT

OK peoples since my car seems to attract you I'll post some pics on it. I still need to remove my wheels because my brakes are almost completely gone because the guy that owned the car before me drove it into the ground, and to boot the wheel lock key is gone so the stupid thing needs to be removed. Any ways have any of you had some cool cars in the past(or present). I currently own the Mustang being one and a Camaro. I have a vid on youtube of it if you care enough just type in 1970 mustang grande restoration. Sorry I say UMMM alot.

I WANT!!! My first car was a 78 T-Top cause my Dad only ever kept Mustangs. That's going to be a stunner. I can't wait to see when it's done!!!

I love that body type, it's my favorite. Mustangs rock!!!

Here's a link to my first car, my baby. The image is huge and I don't wanna post it here.

Awesome... was going to make a thread for my car but didnt feel like it lol.

I had an old Monte Carlo... Never got around to fully restoring it though.

My "Project" is a 1998 Subaru Impreza 2.5RS.
I bought it in September of 06.


Stripped it down in January of 07 at my friend's shop


After a full drivetrain swap with a 2003 STI, these are from 08



And January '10




And here are 2 videos from last week of it on the dyno.

Sadly, the car has more money in parts in it then my 05 STI :(
