Hello
 I had hoped to have the car out for a pass this fall, but work is really slow. We are not always working 5 days a week now and it is going to get even slower at X mas. I just don't want to spend a lot more money at this time
 I was going to go to the track without a lot of the street equipment, but I decided to put it all in this winter. The gas tank is out front just to fire it up,  so I can finish bumper brkts and wiring at the back
  Anyway, it was really really loud even at 2,000 rpm. My brother and a good friend Walter Sherwin, are helping me out. Deb took this clip
                                take care
                                       Tom

Sounds good Tom.  Looks like you've been busy, no wonder you hadn't posted in a while.

Tom, Its great after all this time to finally hear the car running !! It seems like it was only a year ago that it was in that roll ovr fixture, but I think thats closer to 3 years.

You've come a long ways since then !

Thanks fo rthe comments. I really feel bad about not going out for a pass, but even though I have almost the rest of the parts to get out, I still need to pay someone to take me to the track, get new belts, hire my vette guy to come down to help with the last of the door assembly and buy the little brkts to finish that
  Even the local auto parts store is $25-40 a day with running back and forth. It just adds up
   I am going to start it again this week after I put on the new Moroso mech water pump I bought off here  a yr or so ago and maybe try out the DNA mufflers I bought. It all depends on the weather and how cold it gets. We have had a really crappy summer and the fall has not been that warm up until this past weekend. We have had frost warnings the past week or so at night and not that warm in the daytime
   I still have lots of questions to ask in the months ahead
                                           take care
                                                    Tom
