The weird thing is, I might be able to afford this coming up in summer. God I hope so. But there's also more stuff than that like a steering wheel ($300), Rear disc brake conversion ($320, used parts), short throw shifter ($185), and some random restoration stuff ($200). And I'd really like to get some other shit too. I need to stop going fancy on it. I don't even have this job yet.
In the real world, the stuff that is a necessity is around $400.
