Spring has arrived in most parts of the world. Racing season is underway and project cars are being pulled out of hibernation. My own 240Z is long overdue for some loving and seeing this S30 photo on Minkara has me feeling very motivated to charge up the dead battery and pull the car out of the garage for the first time in a long while.

Any one else feeling inspired about their cars with the change of seasons?

What do you mean 'most of the world'? Half of the globe is coming into autumn, reflecting on a great summer's speedhunting. Some of this blog's finest rides come from Down Under, don't forget!

Totally! I'm gonna swap out my 5.0's broken T-5 tranny that gave up on me last November and I'm changing it for a 6-speed T-56 i got from a 2003 Cobra... I also got new leather seats out of a 2007 s197 mustang and a 13 inch Roush brake kit for the rear I just ordered.

I feel like giving an advice to all the young people out there. I have always had a habit of making eace cars ( not road legal) of everything I drive. I have at the moment a bmw e36 and a Lancia Integrale sitting in the garage fully prepared with roll cages and the lot and what am I forced to drive when the spring finally arrives? A renault kangoo diesel van! Building race cars and being creative in the garage is a lot of fun, but make sure you have something fun to drive on the road. I suddenly got the urge to find a little peugeot 106 to thrash around with squeeling wheels. No its not going to be a kit kar replica..

I'm behind schedule on getting the Jag prepped and painted. Should have had it all done already. The EF hatch is pulling commuter duty right now, thanks to the fuel prices. I need to get the Corviar out and exercise it too. Wish I had a 240Z to play with. Maybe trade the EF? ;D The FZ6, of course, is always ready to fly.

Feeling the same. Went to the eagle rock swap meet and picked up some aluminum brake drums and interior pieces. Still have a few more things I need to get to finish rebuilding the brake system and need to send the drums to get relined. Happy wrenching.

I'm working on selling my 1987 RX-7 GXL so I can make space to start an engine swap on my 1986 RX-7 Sport. It already has a JDM S5 13BT in it, but it's burning coolant. I got two more 13BTs, three transmissions, and a whole bunch of other parts for $250 from a friend that are waiting to be transplanted. I just need the driveway space!
