    ... Penelope has a Sister!

    Thanks to Junior Mike..

    Penelope has a little sister to take care of.

    I've given it to my little brother, he's going to try and get it running. Then hopefully take it into his autoshop (at highschool) and fix up all the frame.

    Yeah, it's all rotted, I don't know what I just got myself into.
    I work part time, I go to school full time, about the only time I'm home is weekends, and that time is spent studying. LOL

    I was talking to my dad, and he said he can grab me some 1/8" thick 2x2 steel tubing for the rails. He works for a Tool and Die company. So the plan is first to get the motor running, then fix the frame rails. While doing that, install frame connectors, and the like, basically build it up solid.

    I did give the car to my brother, so he's going to be doing a lot of work on it. I hope it turns out well.

    Yeah, it was very last minute kinda deal, but it worked out. Frame is interesting on it. She needs some love. Can't let them go to the scrapper, so we gotta fix them. My brother wants to be a Mechanic, so I'm hoping this will be a good start for him.

    I used to like only the Zenki tails, but I like my Kouki's (on Penelope, yes I named my car). They look a little more modernish...

    My brother did join the forum, so I'm sure once he gets approved he'll be all over this posting his own opinions, and the like. Please don't flame on his newbieness too much.

    Frame rails... and get the car running, right now Dizzy is off, AFM is off, water pump looks to be leaking, vacuum lines off...
    I haven't even looked @ the ODO on it. So I might just try and get a new motor, instead of working on the old one.

    I also might have just sourced a low mileage motor to throw in there.... lol.. everything is moving soo fast!

    Gotta make sure he's got the right toys, don't want him to fall into that "240" crowd.
