Default Silvercar MKIII: SIERRA COSSIE TURBO FAWK GUY FAWKING FAWKES SOOPER BITCHIN' FAWK

Here is my car:



Hamtown, USA.
Population: Me.

93 HVAC and PS
93 Power Mirrors
Cupholder Armrest

4.10/588 Truetrac
7003-Z Super Duty Trans / Deeworks Adapter Plate
Yoshifab flywheel and ceramic clutch
Nathaninwa rail / Fuelab pressure regulator / Aeroquip TFE Lines
ID 1000
MS2 / DSM CAS / LS Coils / Deeworks Coil Bracket
Cosworth TB0384 Turbo
DO88 Group A intercooler
AEM 320
PLX Wideband
Poly / Yoshifab / Kerplunky TAB
Koni Adjustable F+R
Dingleball strut mounts / Fortune Auto radial bearing top hats
Staggered BBS RS
Momo Ghibli-3.

What is the meaning of life? I dont even like this car anymore.

The reason it is called Silvercar MKIII is because, well, ive been down this road.

First in 2006

#crushed

Followed up with this in 2012


Semi restored by its new owner


All of this has led to my third incarnation of a pipe dream 242.

Here is the car "as purchased"



The interior was chock full of 90's mods.



Here is the engine bay pre purchase. Notice kjet has already been removed.



Here the car sits a year later.

It is already lacking in the kjet department. Elroy got to it a few years ago, and took everything apart and left it all exposed to the elements.

The bumper sticks alone make that that car worth its weight in gold. This was the one missing the fuel tank right?

And I will get back to you on what manifolds I have here if you still need those details, I am home sick today so I can remember to check the yard.
