Thats a perfect thing to save for! Mine are Mr Mike's, well worth the money. His craftsmanship is second to none. I'm saving for a total re-paint on my 87 GT, the quotes I got last week are between $6000-$8000!! Better start saving haha.

The last few parts to build up my engine then some how find time to actually work on my own car so it hits the road this year.
Final result I am hoping to hit around 400 HP at the wheels with my modified 3800SC/F40 6 speed then start on the interior with a nice set of Mr Mikes cloth seats.

Too many things to list everything. On the major immediate need list to get it driveable:
Drivers window and power window actuator as well as all the window seals.
Front windshield
Tail light lenses
End seals for T-Tops
L36 and everything needed to install, as well as two sets of gaskets/bolts to top swap my L67 top end to it (and vice-versa)
New tires

Once it is operational:
Complete 88 front suspension/brakes.
Sail panels
Lots of little trim pieces
Mikes seat covers
New headliner
Body work and paint.

Hopefully will get it done before I'm too senile to drive it.

Probably the 7730. And then power steering.
Right after I fix my A/C, which blew out in a pretty spectacular manner on the way back from Indy. Sounded like an M80 went off under the car.

Now that the turbo Fiero is up and running, a new engine. Stupid rod knock. Luckily, I got a lead on a brand new GM crate engine.

Your avatar has become quite accurate lately. Maybe you should mix up a custom paint colour for the car and call it "roshambo green" (or grey, or blue, or whatever else works).

I'm also saving for a place with lots of acreage and a large outbuilding. Be nice to finally have a place to store and work on my cars.

Deck lid scoop to pull all that heat out of the engine compartment. This AZ heat is making my motor turn off if I drive it more than 20-25 miles.

Other than that, rotors all around. Found out I'm 0.003 over the replace thickness while I was replacing my blown struts.

For me, I was always looking to buy a nice set of 17" wheels and tires, plus coil overs.
