UnderPressure 86 SVO

I picked this car up on a whim.  I really didn't have a plan or need for it.  Matter of fact, the only reason I bought it is because of all the aftermarket parts it came with.  The value of the parts far exceeded the asking price for the car.  I looked at it as a deal I could pass up so July 3rd, 2005 I drove 18 hours round trip to pick it up...after a thorough lookover, the UnderPressure Project was born...Why did I call it "UnderPressure"?  Well, two reasons really: 1) I put myself under pressure financially when I purchased it and 2) The engine will of course be under excess of 25psi to be exact.

Engine--too early for this...

Drivetrain--some sort...

Suspension/Tires--it has this too...

Waiting For Installation--
tons of goodies...

Here is a few pics of it the day I pulled it off the trailer.  There is no engine or trans so it's high in the front...

Not in too bad of shape from this angle...

I got a few of these with the car...someday I'll actually install one in the SVO...
