    mine sits in my garage... I'll get rid of it eventually but i've used a bunch of parts off of it so far... alternator, water pump, power steering pump/braket, throttle body, and a few other little things.

    My old n/a short block is on the engine stand taking up room in the garage. The block is in decent condition, and could be used again. Heck, it only has about 73K miles on it and doesn't have much ring wear, so it could be put in some other car as an n/a....but who would want to? Probably going to have to do something with it soon, my parents are starting to get tired of it just hanging out in the garage.

    Lord of uh, hmm what was it again?
    The one from my 87 is going to be built into another backup motor.
    The other one will sit just in case this ranger blows it's current 2.3 till I get it and throw in the turbo engine. then both of those will get built into other backup turbo engines.

    I have this thing about never having too many spares.
    That would explain the several t5's, 8.8s, turbo engines, n/a engines, 289's, and 302's I have packed away.
    Hell thats not even getting into all the body parts and other driveline parts.
