    Project Cannonball. The '78 99Turbo.

    So I picked up a 78 99 T for $450.

    PaulH, Delo and I towed it up to Harvey's Autohaus in Finksburg MD. Only issue was loosing a manhole wheel.

    Harvey got it running a bit, but it dies out, I'm ordering a new fuel accumulator, and tank screen. He has put in a new pump.

    I have already gotten the front spindles and axles from an 87 900, to update to the vented rotors with the sliding yoke brakes. A bunch of stuff will be back from the powder coater (spindles, rear trailing arms, rear sway bar).

    Goal is to run up to PA and pick up a rust free hatch and maybe find a decent A pillar to cut out in case mine isn't salvageable.


    Myself and harvey.





    Engine bay not looking stock.

    Nothing new to report. Focused on the wagon for the past few months. Want to do dp and tune before returning to the 99.

    No, the car was beyond repair and is being used for parts.
