Hi all, the car is not forgotten. Just in the time it took me to build my driveway I’ve turned my crown vic into a trophy truck, bought a basket case pickup truck, and a caged 1976 2002 race car, so I’ve got a lot going on. On the plus side the driveway is done and I’ve got parts on order for all FOUR of my cars now.

Impressive. What engine is going into the 2002? Or what's in it already?

It has its stock M10, we think. The car came with no paperwork and is completely gutted with a cage and race instruments so it's a little hard to specify exactly what I'm looking at.

Here's a pic from when I was towing it home with the barge:




Got it for $500, the cage is almost lemons compliant, so we're taking it lemons-ing.

Welp, Da Vinci is done for now. It's pinging/knocking at most throttle positions and most loads. Good news is I'll be exchanging some electronics work for the machine work the block and head will need. I just need to save up a little bit for all the parts it'll need.
