    Hey Everyone!

    How has everyone been? I just wanted to drop in and let everyone know I'm back (after a VERY long break!) Some of you may remember me when I had a 78 Tangerine coupe I was working on. I have since picked up another 78 Tangerine coupe a few years back and my original was involved in a pole barn fire that destroyed it. I did salvage my Southside traction bars that have seen 0 miles..........that was it!

    So I finally picked up an 88 turbocoupe that will have the drivetrain transferred into my 78 Tangerine. I'll start to get some pictures of the progress.

    Hope everyone is doing well!!!

    -Mattie

    Hey Mattie
    I have not been on here forever either. I went to the dark side and built a import car :nono: It is nearing completion, so I have been looking at the lump under the car cover LOL (My II). The II lost oil pressure and i had it towed home two years ago, i have not even looked at it. The trans and the rad are shot. I did buy a new rad for it. Going to pull the engine this winter and rebuild the trans.

    Wow, there's a couple familiar names!

    I went way to the dark side...92 Corvette, though we have a 97 GT vert and an Expy at our house. Did see this for sale locally and got me thinking

    BUT, I sold almost EVERYTHING II related a few years back...just wouldn't be the same starting all over, I guess

    Mattie, glad to see you back again! I love the idea of the TC engine in a coupe. Loving the Tangerine II also.

    Cobraman, was that one a homebrew vert?
