    That's great to know!

    Hopefully everything will start moving positively forward for all of us in the not too distant future!

    And to think some of the guys were giving me a hard time for taking 10 years to build my RPU all by myself :D

    Car & owner are well, but an equally as interesting thread got killed by a monarator so I doubt updates on this project will be posted any time soon. Bob

    That would be a shame.

    I've gotten over being pissed about the hot rod cord thread being locked for no apparent reason. But don't have any great updates. I've been calling engine builder twice a month to plead with him. We have very little left to do before the motor can be dropped in to the chassis.

    I'll be at least 71 years old when I get my promised ride in it around the Lime Rock track. I'll send him a message and let him know he's missed. Bob

    It went to the engine shop in May. Because we screwed up and didn't make a mockup of the radiator when we had the chance, we need to drop a block in and either mockup it up or take a lot of good measurements. Chuck Niles in Maine agreed to build it.
