I got myself a Repu!
Hey guys, I'm new to the forums, and this is my first post. Like it said, I got myself a Repu! Well, actually my wife is awesome, and picked it up as a birthday gift. I should have started a pole asking who has the better wife!
It's an S vin model 75, and it looks great! Plus the previous owner had done some good work to it. It has a supercharged 12a mated with a TurboII tyranny and an as of now still unknown beast of a rear end! This thing is a rocket in a straight line, but has no power steering, and is still running drums in the back.
The only thing I'm really needing right now to get it legal is the metal flasher relay box under the dash, so the turn signals work, and the horn to be wired. I'm probably going to just pull the existing "harness", and fab up my own though.
The interior was completely stripped, but he left the dash! He also took a pair of leather Rx8 seats, and welded them to the floor pan. They look good in there, but are dangerous in a lil truck pushing 350hp.
The body is in good shape too, with exception of some rust on the tailgate. I own and manage a shop, so these are really no problems at all, but would like to introduce myself and get some opinions.
Thanks for reading these ramblings of a rotary fanatic, who has finally gotten his hands on an old school chassis! I'm probably the happiest I've been since my bachelors party!
People suck. For the love of
god, don't be a person.
