Look, the kit I'm taking a look at is 1k. That includes body and frame. The engine I'm taking a look at is $300. I can get tranny and rear-end at my junkyard for farily cheap. I'd just primer it and drive it with any tires and wheels I find. No fancy rod, no real sunday cruise night car, just a little cheap RATTY rod. I'm not planning on using any of the other components TPerformance offers. If I buy a project car, sure I might get it for cheap, but in the long run I'll just shove sooooooo much money into it.
I looked at this guy's page
http://members.tripod.com/~Jackak10/tbucket.html and I'm sure he didnt invest too much money in it.
I'm planning to get rack and pinion steering out of a hyudai (I heard they 'em and they're very easy to install).
