      Thanks Dave. Future plans are to get it back on the road. As you can see from the pics it's getting there but still a ways to go. Still need to finish the interior, brakes, front end alignment, test & tune, then paint & body. Added fiberglass fenders, front bumper, rear deck...lots of body panel line up and fresh paint to go. I'd like to get it back to the track by next summer...but that has been my goal for the last 2 summers. We'll see. I'll keep updating with pics here as it moves along.

      I'm just willing to bet we all have one spot on the car we'd really like to have done a little better,,,,, That said, the car is really super otherwise right.

      Lets celebrate the good stuff guys... Great build and I look forward to seeing videos of you driving it this coming summer hopefully...

      Something about that color, the white top and the ram-air hood with decklid spoiler is just RIGHT. Man I'd cruise that thing all night!

      Thanks for all the kind words!

      as far as:
      should have not posted that pic of the trans tunnel with that nasty looking hump for a shifter. Other than that I like it
      ...this was an original M20 4 speed car. The tunnel and the hump had very little modification needed to upgrade to the Richmond 5 speed. Here's what it looked like in 1997 (date of first restoration) when the stock M20 came out:




      ...I guess it's not too pretty in either situation but it's not far from how it was originally even with the 5 speed in there. Also it will be covered by the boot and then the original 4 speed console. ...so no reason not to post a progress pic..in my opinion of course...but to each his own...
