Got lucky today & scored a bumper & hood already painted to match my car. I may go back and get the fenders if he has them next week. Then my exterior will be done...

I brought the Eclipse home at the beginning of March I think. I sold my Capri's or parted them out..HA HA

The red one was a car that I did a engine swap on for a guy. Started out doing a head on it but when I pulled the head 2 of the pistons were full of oil. So we sourced a engine & I swapped out the whole thing for him.

I will still work on them & who knows maybe own one haha

And if you look hard enough there was a silver one there too...I had that one for almost 1 year at my house, I always did work on it for a older guy, but he had a stroke & could not drive it so i stored it for him. Eventually he sold it. I was his personal mechanic for it..haha

I am the craigslist master...

So I had my "project" 95 Talon TSI AWD & i decided to part it out and do something different. So this guy wanted to trade me for a running 280ZX Turbo. I figured what the hell, I can see it easy or trade for a truck or something....Seats & dash trashed but the engine was clean and strong. body in great shape too...

So then within 24hrs..i found a heavily modded 95 Eclipse GST with starting issues. I went from a never ending project to a running car to a monster of a daily once i get it running. Pretty sure i know what the problem is. I plan on putting this back to stock and then putting the parts on the 98 GSX & sell the rest...Damn I am lucky

Man, I love those DATSAN/NISSAN 280ZX.  My brother in law had the 2+2. Didn't it had a woman's voice as a door open reminder or was it the 240SX?

So what, let me understand you correctly. You trade your Mitz for 280zx and trade back to Mitz again?
