Well the time has finally come for my Rebuild. What an arduous journey it has been getting to this point.
So many of you guys can attest to the Stress both mentally, physically, oh and let us not forget Financially, that comes with LGT ownership and the inevitable #YNANSB .
From a financial stand point this doesn't make a lot of sense to most.
With the exception of you guy's(some of you guys I hope) and my Girlfriend.
Friends and family alike think I'm Bat shit crazy for having this car rebuilt....but they just don't know, and I'm certainly not going to let them drive mine to find out.
Trust the shit eating grin on my face as I fly by you in your Prius as if you were standing still.
Here is my original thread:
Loaded the car up on a trailer yesterday, and drove it 130 miles up to Dave Brady's Shop, Enhanced Street Performance in Sterling MA.
Unfortunately, I didn't have the Time, transportation alternatives, and quite honestly the skill set to take on the rebuild myself....maybe next time!
