It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of dperkins. His friend and family are continuing to work on his goblin project in his memory.

So sorry to hear of this. Please, use the resources on the DF forum to help the family achieve the goal of completing his dream of a completed Goblin.

Wes... I am interested in your roof rack. Can you give me some more information on it, or a link to where you sourced it. Thanks.

I made a thread a year or two back. It has all the info but basically just cut a standard one down to fit what I wanted. It's a pretty sweet upgrade! Should be easy to find if you search under my name, lmk if you can't find it.

Thanks. I did find it. Love what you did with it and how you mounted it, etc.
Drove the Goblin to work today, now half the office wants me to give them rides on my lunch break

Saw that coming! Half the miles on your Goblin will likely be giving out rides during the first year on the road. :D
If your Goblin is not yet sold, I'm interested. But (like I said on your thread) I'm not a fan of pink. AT ALL. I'd need to strip completely, send everything out for powdercoat and paint, and reassemble. Pricey and time-consuming. Would you consider $12K cash? If so, where are you located? If not, I hope that I didn't offend. Thanks.
Great looking car. Also a Florida builder (#227) located in North central Florida. How difficult was it to get your Florida tag? Thanks for any info you can provide.

I appreciate that, thanks.
Looks like we're nearly neighbors. I'd love to come see yours one of these days if possible. I'm ordering the kit this week.

Cool. Longest part of the process was waiting for the frame to be built. Felt like forever.

And that’s probably not going to be possible.
I have mine through progressive valve 20,000 plus uninsured motorist for 540 a year and insured as a roaster, You can look on my registration forum and call her and ask how you can explain to your progressive agent how to insure as a roadster. Leslie is very knowledgeable . Or maybe your agent can call her. No mileage limit.

My agent said that progressive can only do it under a cycle policy as a sand buggy. When I get my vin back from the state I migjt have to get ahold of you to get some contact information for your agent. The cycle policy would work but it's a car and just out of principle I want car insurance not cycle lol
Hey I am new to the forum and saw your post for your car for sale. How were you able to sell with a Cert of Origin since it was uncompleted and not titled? I am also in Ohio. You can email me direct at [email protected].
Thanks
I know this is short notice but we are going over to Port Orchard out by the ferry to see some friends that just came back from AZ and thought we might look you up for a few if you are interested.

We missed you yesterday but maybe next Tue or Wed I can arrange a meeting with you. The next few weeks are very busy with me work and personal things that I am not going to bore you with over the next few weekends. This week I am working hard to get car ready to go on the road for a three day trip in NE Oregon and deal with some personal family business.
I am currently looking for a donor car. Preferably a turbo but supercharged isnt off the table. Thanks a ton!

If you are planning on modifying the engine a lot, go supercharger. If you are keeping it stock, go turbo. The turbo has direct injection fuel, which has limited support in aftermarket. Port injection of the supercharger has lots of aftermarket, including putting on a big turbo.

Thank you for the input. I actually just scored a whole turbo donor already disassembled from a fellow forum dude! He listed it in the classified section and I had to jump on it!
