    My $1075.00 Gpr / Trailer

    Well this is where i stand at the moment,,when i purchased this ski off off ebay i gave $3500.00 for the ski and trailer! i knew from conversations that the ski had only 43 hours on it,so i was fairly pleased with the deal,,it was in florida so i made arrangements to go pick it up from N.C. believe it or not the guy had some buisness to do in virginia so he agreed deliver it to my driveway all the way from florida for FREE.!!!!!!!
    he told me the ski had just had some engine work done to it,and recently had a riva stage 2 installed,,( long story but it was mostly protec )he gave me all the reciets and maintenance records,,,that night i was looking through the reciets and to my disbelief this ski had just had a brand new engine and carburaters installed plus all of the extra stuff installed(riva pro series heads,protec turbo pipe,protec intake,ride plate,,in disbelief i called the dealer in florida and asked them if these reciets were correct and they told me that they were very familiar with this ski and told me that yes those were correct reciets and all of these mods were installed at 39 hours, and the bill of sale is for $7155.18 well to make a long story short i have sold everything off of the ski except for the new t/w crank and cases for a grand total of $2475.00 minus that from the original $3500.00 i paid for it and as it stands i now have $1075.00 in all of it, i have a old set of gpr cylinders and head to use for my BB kit,i have figured after all is said and done i should have close to $5500.00 in everything when its complete.
    then after i get done with with the GPR i will be starting on the 1970 mustang, projects,projects,projects!!! does it ever end?

    My first car was a candy apple red 1970 mustang.I wish I had kept it now in hindsight.You dont see many with that body style anymore and I prefer it to the fastbacks.

    this one has a 351 windsor now but is going to be transformed into a 393 stroker, C4 with 2800 stall,im not going to radical,,but it should make a nice ground pounding cruiser.

    Mine had the 302 in it.It was 10 years old when I bought it and had an overheating problem.I kept it almost 4 years but rarely drove it.After a new radiator,head gaskets,water pump,and thermostat the tranny went out,lol.I ended up selling it eventually for $500 like a dumbass.
