A good friend (Jim Sowby) came over and helped put on the headers and side pipes last Thursday night and we had some extra time so we went ahead and pre-oiled everything and got the motor started up for the first time.
Here is the video....

That's a fine piece of bodywork you have on the car, it should be stunning in the sunshine.

I wonder how long it will take mirror fanatics to walk past the car

Good job, well done

Stunning - silly grin and high five time. BTW - you put the steering wheel on the wrong side of the car :rolleyes:

It's running slightly lean on the left bank.;)


Who supplied the engine Todd, or is it home built?
Sounds "cammy", but my speakers are crap...:mrgreen:
