I'm going for as many opinions on this project as possible.

Restoration project: 1983 VW Passat/Quantum 1600. Chassis sound, body sound, rest of car one step away from FUBAR - particularly mechanically. Used to belong to my sister.

I am tempted to tell my parents that the car is now mine, in order to restore it to its original glory. What I drive right now is a random Audi, so this is only a hobby or something.

Should I prove to the world that I'm a masochist and restore this car?

Not a lot of car people on this forum apparently. Can't help you.

I, being bipedal, have decided to use my legs to optimum effectiveness.

The Kohr-Ah are flawed.  They must die.
If you follow the Kohr-Ah, you should make whatever final preparations are preferential to your species.  You have three of your "minute" time intervals to do so.

My car is tripedal, which automatically beats you in effectiveness.

Can't blame me for trying at least. Not really a car person myself, but managed to get rid of an annoyingly clingy MOTAS and figure I need something to do during the weekends.

The people you should be asking probably hang out at
Pelican Parts. pelicanparts.com. Since VWs are often
closely related to Porches, they can likely point
you in the right direction.

My car is unipedal, which beats yours in efficiency.  Of course, you still win for effectiveness, since mine's not real.

Put a turbocharged 6 into it Cheesy  GO ALL OUT!!!

I'd say a turbo 8 but it probably wouldn't fit Wink.

No, the 8 will not fit, sadly. I could always drop the 8 into the audi and use the audi's 5 in the passat... hmmm...

Decided to, uh, 'alter' it slightly instead of mere restoring. the body will be sandblasted and dipped next week. also trying to source a quattro 4wd drivetrain for it (after much consultation over a nice dry white with my partner last night).

Cars Cats.

Seriously, isn't there a single place on the Internet without a reference to cars?

Question:  Does it have the flip-store variety of headlights?  If it does, mebbe you could rig some kind of rocket-launcher into the system.  Nothing too extreme, basically an over-glorified mount for a couple of 4th of July mortar kits.

Nice idea. I was wondering what I still lacked after the miniguns and plasma shields...
