He had secured new transportation and didnt want the liability/headache of the VW anymore. We agreed that 5 ground crack textures I would take the car off his hands. If I didnt want it he was going to give it to his nephew, and if his nephew didnt want.
This seemed like a good place to start! Fortunately Rt.14 junkyard was less than a mile away from where the car was parked. I considered it a positive omen 50 later I had a new (used) distributor, cap, and a couple of rotors.
After poking around the car a bit, looking for obvious issues I noticed that the distributor cap was loose. This distributor has two clamps that hold the cap on. One of those clamps was broken, and after loosening the other one we opened it up.
Heres hoping I dont blow the motor or trans before then.
These winners seem to be built by experienced fabricators who are also able to find deals on parts/materials. Tool costs are not included in the budget, so you have an advantage if you own a welder, mill, CNC machine, blast cabinet, powerdercoater, etc.
I placed orders for: New Bosch spark plug wires - not wanting to deal with that issue again and still needing to install the newer cap. A Peloquin 80 lock kit traction will be key to drag race this FWD monster.
Anything that is part of the car at the time of the challenge is included in the budget, with the exception of fluids (e.g. gas, coolant, etc.). You can also recoup up to half the total budget from selling unneeded parts from the car.
