Nice! Martin's car? Looks good
Your absolutely right about that. These local guys know their stuff and have all been really helpful. The strange part is, it took me 14 years to find them. Honestly, up until a few months ago I had only ever seen 4 urq's and when I did, they were always traveling in the opposite direction. I never was able to stop and talk to the lucky owners. It wasn't until my 4th sighting that I finally found one in a driveway....parked. I did the reverse look up "stalker thing" just so I could talk to the owner. He too was very nice but in a very polite manner told me to find my own urq, he was keeping it. I was frustrated but also more determined than ever. At that time I already knew about the quattro.ca website but had never contacted the creator (Martin). One night I did, just to say the urq was my ultimate dream car and how much I liked his web site. It turned out to be perfect timing because he had one for sale.quattro87 said:The good part about your end of the country is you have a bunch of local know how to draw from.
I'm just trying my best to keep up with you guys. I've got lots to learn about these cars and I can't wait to go to the next meeting. I had a blast.Katman said:Sorry I was talking so much at pub night! It just that the urq can get one going on and on pretty easily...
Looks like you have a good place to start. It's got to be better that what I started with
Honestly, I'd be happy if this car could just wipe the smile off the faces of a few STI owners. Even if its just in a strait line. I know its juvenile but this car deserves that sort of power. With that said, the engine will definitely have electronically controlled EFI regardless of the quantity of valves. As for the rest I'm still deciding. I think I'll sort of let the condition of the car dictate that. As of right now the WX looks like it would have to be over-bored to be usable. Some of the cylinder walls are really badly rusted. Also, the interior is completely shot. I've got a lot of reading to do before I make any serious decisions but I'll give you a hint. This is a tool I purchased while building my old Jeep. I may have a few uses for it here....loxxrider said:So whats the basic plan?
