It's a great feeling isn't it? The feeling you have right now - I had that feeling back in March It was looking grim for my 'Bird as well when out of no where, it fired up one March evening and hasn't stopped since. Granted, mine was down from September til March (roughly 6 months) but it's still a great feeling to when you turn the key and it starts

congrats, when my hg's blew last november i was without a car for three weeks, so i know how it feels to be stuck without a car, i took so long because i had to wait for my gaskets to get here and also the machine shop took almost two weeks to get the heads rebuilt and ported and polished, lol, so i feel ya there with the sense of relief you get when you finally get everything back together and you turn the key and it fires right up, lol, later'z......
I was driving around an old 88 Subaru until I got my Tbird fixed. Was, because right now that subie has developed a severe lack of third gear. I wouldnt care, but its the last gear on it. Oh, and it doesnt shift anymore. We're gonna buy a j-yard trans for it.
