    Bobby "Bacala" Baccalieri

    Dirty Sanchez is a short, easily complete-able project that will consist of wheels, basic clean up and some basic suspension changes.

    The car was bought with out a care, I was tired of looking for cars and having them sold before I could get there so, I packed up and traveled to Detroit. After looking at the car from the outside (we go there before the owner did and, the car was locked), I saw that it was straight enough to buy on the spot. Not even a test drive and, money was exchanged and we took the car back to its temporary resting spot where, it sat for a week.

    Day 1:
    The car was delivered from the other side of the state.

    Mind you, even with the stupidly high miles on the car, it fires up on the first hit with out any smoke. So, Ryan sent this while he was on lunch when he saw how clean it was.

    After getting the car here, we wasted no time putting on the rear wheels.

    Day 2 (today)

    Decided to remove the Plastidip/painted/Nightshaded/what ever it was from the tail lights.




    They have since been polished but, I'm to lazy to take the camera out there.

    Next up, was the headlights. Granted, these will never be replaced or probably touched again but, they annoyed me so I cleaned them up a bit.

    The last thing for the night was to remove the smog system or, at least get that task started. Come to find out, someone took the pulley off of the smog pump yet never took the pump out.

    Basic snap shots that make it look cooler than it really is.

    Since a certain CTS-V is getting a blower, I had to get premature baby of a turbo.

    For the charge piping to fit, I had to cut out a useless piece of the fender apron.

    It needs a different coupler for the throttle body but, that'll come in due time.

    Got the intercooler installed even though, its far to small for the job.

    I've been going back and forth on getting a two new Mark 7 engine harnesses or putting in a Mustang harness since, the connectors for the o2, ignition module and such were burnt to a crisp for some reason. The car doesn't have air ride or emissions and more so those bug chunks of wire are useless any how.

    Started taking the interior out to get rid of the dead weight and realized, the seats weight a metric ton. The quest for Kirkeys and a way to mount them has started.

    I need to figure out what color to have these coated in. Its between satin black and cast iron. I'm leaning towards cast iron since, that will look original.
