    Purchased the car from the widow of the previous owner, my friend Allen, who passed away far too young from cancer. The car had spent nearly three years in a body shop, being cured of tin worm and getting fresh Malaga paint. Allen was starting to reassemble it when he succumbed. At that point, I wasn't even aware he was building a 2002. But a mutual friend, who knew of my love of 2002s, contacted me and set up the chance for me to acquire this one. I will be forever grateful to Sean Grubb, my pal in Tulsa.

    I bought the car as a rolling chassis, with only drivetrain and brakes in place. I have spent more than a year trying to complete the build the way Allen had planned. That includes tii struts, big brakes, billies & IE springs, big swaybars, a 5-speed, euro bumpers, and a conversion to EFI. Part of the fun of putting the car back together was figuring out the modifications along the way, since very little was left in the way of written documentation of the build. Fortunately, Allen DID leave a large cache of the parts needed to complete all these modifications.

    With any luck, the car should be running very soon.
