    Allow me to correct this...

    $2500- formal 2 door in fair shape Nope, more like $1500, maybe $1200... we've been trying to get you into a Formal for long enough to know you never intend to pay the standard price :D
    $4000 complete 5 speed swap kit for a B body Pure BS, if you wanted to spend for a transmission, it would go into Nate's Charger or maybe the race car, Digging through the swap meets and junk piles to find something usable/rebuildable... budget closer to $400...cheap skate (and my hero).:poke:
    $2000- headers, homemade dual exhaust, misc pieces and pedal assembly. OK, this is probably accurate $... mostly due to "misc pieces". I see used headers and soup cans welded to the exhaust of your budget Formal... tell me that's never happened before.:D
    I'm still beating the 10 k and, I know every inch of the car.:thumbsup:
    Use the other $1500 for a scoop, wheels and tires.I'm picturing $500 for a set of used wheels and 8 year old tires... and maybe a couple of old Post Gazette mailboxes on the hood.:rolleyes:

    Your not wrong. I just don't have time for another project, so buying a formal has kind of dropped off the stove (more than back burner). Buying a "finished car" well, really just not my style and, the money could be used toward fixing some annoying things on a black Peterbilt.
    Transmission correction is probably true, and the trans out of the Charger would go in the formal, perfect behind a cast crank, cruiser style car long distance car I have in my mind's eye, also kills two birds with one stone.
    The headers and hood scoops were just put in to stir the pot.
    Wheels and tires, are you kidding me. Black, round, hold air. :thumbsup:
