    Not my cars in the background :-(
    The shop is a "car club" in a warehouse where people store their cars and trailers and can work on them. Located in Alpharetta.

    Blake: I'll be back in town the last week of April. Stop by some night to check out your car and the other cool machinery. We can talk fuel cell swap.

    Jimbo--My buddy and I had the opportunity to buy a place like that (with a small house on the lot, another detached garage and an RV Port). Suppose the house could have been rented out.

    Our bid was $225,000, but it sold for a bit more. It was zoned industrial despite the house.

    Chances like that are few and far between...

    $50/month membership. Gets you access to the facilities
    $50/month to store enclosed trailer
    ~125-150/month for an indoor stall.
    175 for am indoor walled off "garage" area

    2 work areas with lifts & other useful tools.

    Scott and I could have bought this place for $50k http://gis.co.greene.oh.us/data_gcgi...1/MV144431.jpg

    Too bad we're married, 5000 sq ft, $1000 a year in taxes. If we had any brains it could easily pay for itself.

    I just passed close by today on the way to pick up the motor & trans for the STL car - now in my truck as I finish up a work trip to Louisville.

    That's not a GSR intake...what engine is that? Kinda looks like a non-VTEC B18...? Unless...is that a DA (2nd-gen) GSR engine, the B17A1? I built one of those for the DC-gen Integra last year, brought it to the 2013 Runoffs....

    Correct, that's not the GSR intake... IIRC, it's a Skunk intake that's going to be swapped out for a legal one.

    Mike, can't wait to see the build start to come together!

    Its is a B18 VTEC. And yes the intake is a skunk. Im pretty sure that other than the intake the motor is STL legal.

    Mike, can't wait to see it out on track. Should be a fun car to watch.

    Evidence from this past weekend is that the Civic Si Coupe with the B16 (yo!) is maybe not completely out of the running.

    Just sayin'

    Seriously though, this was one hell of a fun ride.
