Finally drove my 86 Turbo Z for the first time today. It has been many hours and way too much money but it finally lives! Had to remount the engine, new timing chain, fuel pump, battery, O2 sensor, calipers, rotors, brake lines, fuel lines, fuel filter, and 3 cv shafts later I finally took it for a spin around my colleges parking lot. New Turbo and clutch soon to come and this baby will be road ready.

absolutely amazing! haha I have been putting off working on it for a long time and finally got the motivation to finish it. Had to rivet some panels back on the body tonight and the windshield and moldings will be put on this weekend. I will definitely have pics up soon. Dont expect a showroom floor car. it is far from that but hopefully it will get there soon.

As promised I got some pictures of it today. And like I said, it ain't a show car but it is getting there. Got the panels riveted and the body moldings taped on today. The hood is off of a laser I found in the junkyard and I haven't been able to align it quite right so it will latch all the way down yet. I also took her down the road today and found that all 5 gears are working properly with no grinding at all!
