    Wow..Such a great feeling firing off a project of 2 yrs...With the 2 1/4 magnaflow pipes it sounds sooooo sweet. Why is it that no one but guys who work on them can really relate to how excited you get. Specially after dumping the amount of money into it....It's almost as good as finding out you have no cancer...LOL...Now I can move on to my hearts desire my 1948 F1..It is so great being able to move on with my life and having people to share your excitement with...It's a great day...Smile...Scot

    I was pretty psyched when my car fired for the first time in 38 years.... Getting it licensed, insured, and on the road was a great feeling.

  9. I know that feeling and I haven't even been able to fire the engine up since I put it on jack stands last may. I took the jack stands out the other day and was in awe of the car sitting on it wheels and how awesome it looks with the stance. Its the feeling of accomplishment that is so powerful. Maybe soon I can start the engine and drive again.
