She's finally alive...........



Well as some of you may read awhile back i had to go to Tennessee to rescue my car. And restarting over was the only choice, after talking to some good friends who know what was going on. Anyhow this is where the car was at 2 months ago. During the first month a good amount of issues had to be dealt with. Mainly with wiring, functionality, and misuse of parts.



Then last month we had Ike come thru and tear some stuff up. And left places powerless. With all that work still progressed on the car. A few set backs here and there brought us to a few weeks ago, when i took these photos.





this month im to a reasonable point where functionalitry is being worked out. but for the most part its together.



and now for what im most excited about.

anyhow after 4 dead years, and a few montrhs of true dedication on the car she's alive.:hyper:

I love the giggle after you start it up. That is just great. You can't beat positive displacement in a heavy car. Very nice.

Wow Vic.

I forgot you had a car.

Looks good man. Love the giggling like a little girl.
And I think your power steering pump is going out. I hear some whine.
