Little video of me cruising around. That squeal as I drive off later in the video is not me, some girl was learning how to drive a stick in the next lot over LOL. Watch on youtube for "bigger" enjoyment.
I must admit to giggling for the first 30 seconds, wondering if this video was going to consist of you driving in a big low-speed circle for the duration.
LOL you got me, it's a pretty lame video, I realized it and that's why I took off to the other lot. More can finally come now. Need to rig something up in the car.

Not a dumb question, it's pretty confusing. This car shares no parts with those cars. The daytona is a G-body, a lengthened K-car chassis, it's blood lies with the K-car family (think Relients, Aries, Lebarons, Lancers, Sundance, Aclaim et. al.) The conquest is a rebadged mitsu. Cool cars, but I dont fit in em.
So the Daytona project has been running for a little bit now, but just barely. Was running pig rich after I put the +20s in so it was drowning in gas with the pedal down and cutting out.
Put the timing light on it today and it was way off, tuned it in and gave the old girl her first bath in years (filthy!!!)
All I can say is, holy crap! Two years I been working on this car and I never drove one that worked. Tromped on it in second and she went nuts! Slammed into third and I was hanging onto the steering wheel for dear life. WOW!
Still going rich when I get high up in the RPMs, I don't think I'm gonna be the lucky few that get a 2.5L to run on +20s on the stock tune. Oh well, she's solid for daily driving at least.
Stopped off for some pics, she looks pretty good from 15 feet!
My favorite angle for the Daytona:
After a spirited drive everything in the engine bay still looks good. Staying cool. This thing actually works! I am excite.
