Well long story short... My car became a problem child and a money pit... And the dream had to be put on indefinate hold when i left to go to school in 2006... It hasnt ran since then because alot of life has been in the way... Hasnt gotten much better but the money flow has improved. Well i will probably anger alot of purists here but i lost my faith in the 3S platform long ago, so here we go 7 or 8 years later its time for rebirth... Not the same as before, but with a new mission and alot more working knowledge and experience to feed the fire.

So lets start from here... April 1 2013... April Fools day to some...
My Garage: where projects go to die... Or atleast hibernate



Hey, Welcome back Dustin!!

Like many All Trac owners, these cars turn into garage queens. Other things in life become more important as we age, and I've been in the All Trac game for about 14 years now (7 All Tracs later (IIRC... :doh: ), I haven't lost any faith in the 3S platform). They just cost more than a 4G63 and SR20DET to make power, and have a weaker aftermarket. The day I do (lose faith in the 3S or have other plans that won't allow any time or money for the All Tracs), I will sell all my All Tracs.

For $5k (+ sale of car, you can get a decent platform that doesn't require a swap. I'm not angry that you're thinking of swapping a Corvette engine in such rare car, I'd just sell it and get something that already has that engine, and sell the All Trac to someone that would appreciate it for what it is... An AWD, 4 cyl turbo Rare Toyota, Rally Car. Sell and get a GTO or something. Cheap to find. Let an All Trac stay an All Trac.
