I saw where it said it has a Subaru A/C system. What car is it off of? I have a 69 and I would love to have A/C in it for the summer.

I have not been able to work on this for a while. However with the new garage in place I am now motivated to work on it. I started by removing the Subaru A/C system. I am going to try to clean up the engine bay. That said I will take as many photos as I can along the way. Plans are to remove the busted 1600 and upon further review make the call. 5 speed or keep the automatic and keep it simple? Who cares I am just stoked to have such a great place to do it. Did I mention I just built a Kegerator that I keep in the garage :lol:

5-speed, definitely. Unless you're going for all-original. Then I'd just try to find a dogleg :)

ok ok. So I have a friend with this amazing shop and you can pretty much make anything there. The vehicles you see in these pictures are Burningman art cars. The shop is where they store them and on occasion there is a party over there which means "lets burn something" . These kids went around and around the building all night till the thing ran out of gas. Pull the rope and dragons breath fire. simple. :lol:
