Came across this poor old thing while out of town for work at a junkyard, grabbed a few oddities off of it but most of the car was garbage

Junkyard scores, grabbed alot of hard to find goodies and spare parts for both the Shelby and K-car projects. Scored multiple SMEC's, Digital Dash's, Illuminated entry hardware, power seat tracks and 2.5T odds and ends. All automatics though and one was V6, booooo

Then a friend stumbled across this complete running Zero mileage 89 2.5 Turbo motor and A525 trans used for diagnostics at a local community college more than a decade ago. SMEC, harness, A525 trans and all. Bought it off him, and destined for a teardown inspection and refresh and going into the Daytona Shelby. SCORE!

Where has the time went! Been struggling with TD login issues for almost 2 years and finally got it figured out

Anyhow been busy as hell, built a myself garage, refreshed a motor, bought and chopped up some parts cars etc etc. Starting with the garage back in 2017, it was time to give the Daytona and K-car a good home, and important piece in the puzzle of both projects

Update! Daytona is in storage still blown up, waiting for funds to build a garage. Picked up another spare running 2.5 Turbo motor to sit on the floor, likely I will drop this one into the Daytona.

Other news, I've heard of the horror stories... cars following people home...

1990 Daytona ES Turbo, 2.5T, A523. Runs and drives but looks like it has blowby and the floor is toast.

Bought for spare exterior for the 89 Daytona Shelby, and engine and trans for the turbo k-car project. Hell of a price, hell of a useful engine combo for my plans, and towing was free, I couldn't say no!

3 Years of engine reliability has come to a close, running on 3 cylinders and blowing tons of blue smoke. Could be piston or head related, hoping the head.

But she will be laid up for awhile, good thing is almost the end of the season, but still man tears lol

Well...

The Daytona is parked/stored for the winter, and seems I may change direction on her future, plans of restoration still but a milder engine treatment.

Because the (eventually) built 2.5 Turbo motor sitting in the shed is going in this :



1988 Dodge Aries-K LE, I am second owner, 35,000km elderly lady car, garage stored, bucket seats. I have been watching this car for years

I will be opening a new thread on the k-car in the near future, it's going to be a slow but steady project
