i finally am driving my car after its 30 year slumber. i posted lots of build pics on my instagram @anthoni.jpeg

i picked up the engine from another user on here and rebuilt it, its a basic 1979 spec na engine that i balanced to the gram and had the whole rotating assembly dynamically balanced.
after spending days tuning the timing and kjet the car rips! definitely the fastest 2.0 NA ive ever driven!

i also just picked up a 1980 with the m471 option to use as a 5 lug donor for the martini. can i use the master cylinder from my 77 with the 5 lug braking system?

thanks to all who helped with parts and advice! heres a video of me driving it up around mt hood oregon!
