DT Breaking News: Project Car

We found a particularly nice project car that we were going to post and share with our readers and we liked it so much that we drove down to the sellers house to take a closer look and...well...bought the car!  The writers of this blog have many 'project-cars' that we wrench on a regular basis (actually - they are our horrible hooptie-rustic daily drivers) but we've decided that this purchase will be a dedicated DT project car.

We will solicit feedback & advice from readers and detail the progress with a camera and stopwatch.  More details later as we write up the first post - but let us see if any readers can guess what we purchased?!  Guess away in the comments below - the winner will get a free DT T-shirt.. Winner will be determined by the first person to correctly guess make/model or by the closest proximity.

    1. We can assure you that the irony of posting the correct answer with an anonymous id is not lost on anyone here. We will ship the free t-shirt to 123 Main St, Anytown, YZ USA.

    2. Pretty sure the fix was in on that one...

  5. Uh, wait a minute...doesn't the term "project car" pretty much preclude it, by definition, from being "particularly nice" or "almost immaculate"?

  6. Rest assured this will be enough of a project - in terms of body & paint we would use the terms "particularly nice" but in other areas it needs plenty of attention!

  7. white = base coat ;) make it polestar blue! or at least a blue stripe

    btw, found your site recently off a link in a thread somewhere - went through your archive links a bit and bookmarked you immediately - great selections, especially the swedish fetish

    1. Personal satisfaction isn't enough? We are still counting the dangling chads over here at DT HQ and will make a decision soon...it is somewhat of a moot point because we don't have the t-shirts in hand yet...
