    Ditto....except I'd change one thing. I'd be driving it everyday instead of you driving it. :D

    Looks great! Sounds Great!

    All my drivers are diesel, even if I had to put the diesel engine in there myself. I haven't converted my A, because it didn't seem "traditional" . I'm glad you're proving that wrong.

    I love diesels becuase they are so much more relaible. My mechinal injection Cummins have modern day performance with simplicity rivaling a Model A.

    The ability to run biodiesel is also a huge motivator for me. The engine is the heart of an old vehicle. All of us who car about cars, want the heart to match our mental ideal, but we often neglect the fact that our American (excuse the USA pride)muscle burns petroleum imported from the Middle East.

    I had the priviledge to haul biodiesel on the 2007 Hot Rod Power Tour for Jay Leno's EcoJet . Jay gets it, that we need renewable and domestic fuel to keep our hobby alive.
