What else do you wrench on?

Whenever I am on model specific forums, I always catch a glimpse of what other projects people have looming in the background. So.. what else do you wrench on?

My wallet destroying 83 turbo quattro coupe (ur-quattro):

1,9bar + ecu mod, 3" 2b cat back, 996 321mm front brakes, 17x8 FF10's, coilovers & tubular CA's on deck and engine shopping..

The overbuilt 'shop truck':

383 stroked, tube headers, ridetech stage 2+ coilovers, sways, tubular CA's, EFI coming, possible Driftamino build if the wife will bite...

1986 Nissan 300zx turbo only other car I've ever wrenched on. Besides helping friends learn how to do an oil change on their random cars.

Edit: Fuck Nissan btw nothing is easy in any of their cars from my experience.
Edit 2: picture is not mine but same color and model.

2013 Scion FR-S. My track car. 328mm 6p Wilwood BBK, RCE T2 coilovers, Apex ARC8 17x9, Hankook RS3, full exhaust, tune, Perrin oil cooler, etc.

Thank God it's easy to work on since I'm basically a monkey with a wrench.

Mostly other people's cars on the side. Gotta put some time in my own car this winter.

Besides my Golf and wife's Tiguan, I still wrench on my vintage Porsche 944, BMW E39 540 Sport Wagon and Porsche 996.

Wife's Honda Accord is leased and super reliable, so the Dealer does the deed.

My e46 323i drift / track beast! It's been completely stripped out, mapped for a higher rev limit and a closer 3.46 final drive (up from 3.07) so it pulls like a train!

Suspension wise it has HSD monopro coilovers and a proper alignment. Handles great on the Goodyear Eagle F1s!



Here it is bog stock, HMS BoatyMce46Face

Not that I have to wrench on them though. They're brand new boats. One of the perks of owning a boat dealership (or being the son of the owner lol).

Just finished converting an old 2006 Kawasaki Ninja into a Cafe racer. Who would've thought that the vinyl wrap job would be the hardest part of wrenching .
