So here we go, my first project build on here since 2009. This is my current build that is now about 4 months old, has changed twice now for platform generations. It all started with a free car to give away ad on our local Facebook car group page. 1992 1st gen Eagle Talon, AWD, 2.0 turbo. It needed a few things but it didn't take long she was on the road and i was having a blast with it. It wasn't to much longer that a friend seen that i had this thing so he brought to my attention one that he had. He owns a local scrap yard and here was a 98 eagle talon that was hardly molested and the price was right. I am a much bigger fan of the body style of the second gen vs the 1st gens. The only issue was the engines in the second gens were prone to crank walk and i just so happened to have a 1st gen engine to swap it out with lol. Swapped it out and did some interior mods to personalize it and started the process of slowly building it while i drove it. That of course came to an end here not to long ago when the engine had a filter housing malfunction and dumped all the oil out on my going to work on a busy highway. We made the decision then that we would get me a new car and this could become just a project car, not a daily as well. Let the pics ensue.
First gen car. it was rough body wise and i managed to squeeze some 225/18 with stiffening the suspension.

The current state, partial tear down, getting ready for a cage.
This is where i will leave it so i can give more details for each segment of the build. lots of personal touches, one off things i want to incorporate.
