@Stan Galat, in your post above, you left out adding the Rancho tranny, Upgraded exhaust, 4 wheel disc breaks. You, Sir, have been a profesor to me (and maybe others) on the cost of searching for that perfect “clown car.”
Although Mr Drewek’s build with the Raby T4 was a great example of fun vs cost. Driving it quickly got one to forget the cost involved.
I look forward to more lessons from you as you continue your future project (s).
