    Yeah we just found out yesterday! I've never won anything like that in my life, we're both pretty freakin excited. The bead roller will come in handy for the next project for sure

    Driveshaft and Linkage is in! Had to lengthen the driveshaft and I notched a bit from the frame x-member just to be safe. Used a lokar column shift kit and didn't even have to bend the rod, it was a nice straight shot[​IMG][​IMG]

    Just got the cam broken in! Huge milestone for me. I've got a small water leak and some carb stuff to mess with, but hopefully I'll be taking it around the block this week[​IMG]

    Well it's was a blessing from God that both the Shasta and the Cadillac made it to Austin, to the wedding, through camping, and all the way back home with zero issues. I've got a lot to post about the days leading up to the wedding but I'm taking a bit of a break to catch up on sleep!

    a long journey but well worth it so far glad you omitted the grocery carrying part out would have probably been bounced and rightfully so.
