Update

Priuck is doing great. Drive it everyday weather permitting. Drove to a show in Toledo
(3.5 hour drive) this summer. Rained most of the way home. Realized how much the old truck leaks. Been working on weather proofing since then. Also had a huge speaker in it to mimic big engine sounds. Fooled a lot a people and got a lot of laughs. Even helped a friend move his couch last weekend. Good old/new truck. Didn’t think I’d do another build, but this Ghia fell in my lap. We’ll see how far the rabbit hole goes.

I’m starting a new Hybrid Hot Rot project. 1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia. You can follow the progress on the, Pria Ghia thread.

It might've been really funny to watch, since the muffler going through the previous location of the differential housing wouldn't give any clue about the transmission setup. Well, I can only guess, but maybe some folks have thought you fitted the FWD setup that GM has used in some of its full-sizes from Cadillac and Oldsmobile.

That's the way these project cars go, isn't it? I always start with the intention of keeping 'em for life. But that's only been true for my motorcycle.

What are you hoping to get out of it? $10k? $12k?
