[Es2] Reality sets in...

BTDT, just a couple months ago.  My engine is currently stripped down for a
rebuild.  I am piston shopping and blending the intake and exhaust passages
in the head.
I had my 200TQ in so many pieces the scrap guy wouldn't even come for it.
It only weighed a couple hundred pounds.
The rest of the car is in my basement and peppered across the U.S. in bits
and pieces.
Some pictures, more to come...
