        The old girl headed for her full makeover... Full Pro-Touring build in progress. Ford Voodoo/Tremec Magnum/8.8 for drivetrain. SubtleZ/YZ body kit. Lots of other upgrades.

        I'll watch for the fix and get the build specs up. I have it posted on the hybridz forum and a master list saved. Definitely a labor of love. It's not too often that your High School car gets to be your Mid-Life crisis car too. Triple Webers are cool and the engine in there now is warmed up quite a bit but a 8200rpm flat plane crank V8 with 500 rear wheel hp is what I'm craving!

        Very cool. BTW, be sure to try using the Forum Signature generator to show off this bad boy - wheelwell.com/profile/55201a1188c5443a770f17db/garage/?location=forum-signature

        RE: adding parts not in the drop down list is a known issue. We are actually trying to make the part entry easier but there's been a few "quirks" that we will iron out ASAP.

        30yrs? Dude, do not let that girl go. I'd kill to get my HS VW bug back. That is so cool.

        []David Ostermiller

        Thanks for the compliments. I'll add a bit of backstory on this old girl soon. Owned the car for 30yrs, my High School car.

        Really like that feature. I tried it earlier after getting the notice it was available. However, items not on the list don't seem to add at all. So specifying the Voodoo engine is impossible as is the Tremec Magnum. Maybe allow typed in items or added items?

        Very nice. We just released the "Build List" functionality on the site. Would be great if you used it as you work on the makeover and let us know what you like/what's missing.
