I am reviving this challenge for this summer. I have hardly driven my car in a year, and it currently is not even SMOG TESTED. I have coolant leaks, rusted disc brakes, and a pesky intermittent wiring problem. But I am on it and wanna get it back to legal and rolling for the return to in-person work in a little while.

CHALLENGE RENEWED. See post #1 to "get it" and understand.
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. 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.
