    I'm back!

    So, once upon a time I had a 1993 Na with a bunch of cool parts and it looked like this:

    Until it looked like this:

    Before I had wrecked my Na, I had bought a non running and rough, but mostly straight and more importantly rust free '94 Na. Both cars have been languishing in my driveway for about 8 years now. Finally my very generous friend, offered to tow the '94 to his place and help me get it back on the road.

    So, the next step will be to rip out the gross and mildewed interior. Pull the dash and install a new wiring harness. The car has a small fire at some point causing damage to the main harness. Then I'll focus attention to the task of manual swapping it. I do have a stash of parts and bits from the wrecked car, so hopefully I'll be able to put together something cool without breaking the bank. Anyway it's good to be back!

    Well, looks like the photos didn't work. I'll fix that once I'm not posting from my phone!

    Thank you! It's fun to be getting back into these cars. They have been sitting in my driveway for far too long. Happy to start getting this one back on the road.

    Thanks everybody, I Haven't gotten much done yet, But I do plan on trying to get it at least up and running, and swap from the automatic to a 5 speed. Hopefully before we get into winter so it'll be easier to move around when necessary.
