Note: Due to a technical issue, PT Garages are presently view-only, meaning existing garages cannot be edited, and new garages cannot be created for the time being. We appreciate the irony that a website dedicated to old cars is having trouble due to a piece of software from 2012. In our defense, software rusts much faster than metal.

While we work on fixing and improving the system, we invite you to look through the nearly 400 garages that are already on the site (which can be searched using the "Search PT Garages" link above), and to check out the Project Updates and Multimedia & Photography forums for more great builds.

    Future plans
    I'd like to swap out the #66 heads for a set of 6X's, giving it a more desirable 9.5ish:1 compression ratio. I want to take it apart next winter and at the very least, upgrade the rod bolts. I'd like to relocate the battery to the trunk as well
