Engine rebuilding as absurdist performance art

Here is a man who should win a performance art award. I'd love to meet the dude. You can predict the result, but you also cannot predict the results (plural).

I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
