Operation "UGOSLO"

Ok, I bit the bullet and got rid of my berlina project car which I found had rust in the pillars. While out browsing the interwebs I came across an add for a mint condition one owner white 86 N/A auto vl executive wagon, with mint cerulean(?) interior, the owner sold it because he was getting to old to drive. Car still has mi. So descided to start a new project.

Current status:
- 266*** ks on it.
- motor is good, leak down test at 90psi was good, the lowest being 85psi.
- transmission seems to be in good nic so it's a good base to start with.
- drum rear end
- mint interior
- drives beautiful but road worthy was done dodge so have a few things to do.

Future mods:
As I had started a project car previously I have accrued a few parts, like a half built forged motor. Few turbo bits here and there, turbo diff etc.
So the plan is to turbo it whilst still remaining my daily. And see where I go with it as I'm driving it. Eventually it will get the forged motor and all the other bits, but for now is a slow project to do on the weekends. Not to good with photos so bare with me.
