After tonight,I have faith me and my rustbucket will get to Cecil Co in October. This car has fought me on everything including tranny mount,reverse shifter linkage,wheels getting blasted and several small gremlins. Well...tonight I showed it who was the boss..... It started right up and idled so nice. I was thrilled to hear the 118 camshaft loping like a big block. I got it started and idling on the very first try. It really made my day to hear it run. Now, if the guy who blasted my wheels is around tomorrow,I will be getting the dog dish wheels painted and all I need to do is alot of minor type jobs. The only problem I have is I went through all the trouble swapping intakes and painting things,that when the air cleaner and accys are bolten on,you cant see the nice motor.I need to get the carpet installed and wheels done as well as hook up a tach and gauge. Its not pretty,but I hope its reliable. I want to get it going this week and get the Hagerty ins on it and do a few local runs before I take it on its maiden voyage. As long as the weather is good, we should make it saturday.
