The Capri lives! (And is unofficially for sale.)

After some initial delays, we took this to a local person who is known for fixing complex wiring issues. What happened is that a previous owner had cut many, many wires under the hood. Good job, Scott! She runs…

We took this to our house to see how it ran. My better half was trying his best to behave with it. I had taken the car for a quick spin around our shop’s parking lot before, but even with that, I was pleasantly surprised. The motor in this a drag motor from a 1990 Mustang that a friend of a friend had acquired in a divorce. Here are the specs:

  • Small Block 302
  • Headman headers
  • Aftermarket 4 barrel aluminum intake
  • Edelbrock 650 cfm 4 bbl carb
  • Summit Racing starter with a wrap
  • Unsure of cam
  • Motor has been converted to serpentine belt

My next project is to get the interior back together. After that, maybe I can entertain the aesthetic suggestions from friends for the exterior…

I was outvoted on this look.

Happy new year from the folks at!

Now that we are all over the death virus and have wrapped up the Christmas festivities, I’ve been busy pulling parts off of a 1974 C3 Corvette donor car. What we don’t use for our 1977 restoration project will be listed on eBay here: in the “1974 C3 Corvette” category. Let’s just say that I bought the donor car for what I would have paid for two complete headlight assemblies.

We had our Summit Racing gift card giveaway when our Facebook page reached 500 ‘Likes’ last month. Congrats to Jessica Posa for winning the $50 gift card! When we reach 1000 ‘Likes,’ we will give away a $100 Summit Racing gift card. Like us on Facebook for a chance of winning.

I hope everyone is having a great holiday season so far.

We would like to thank our fans and customers for supporting us over the past year. It’s been a fun yet challenging time of getting things up and running, and we would like to share some of the fruits of our labor.
