    ...And drives!

    Here's a link to the last update.

    Me and MBL did a lot of things since that last update, but I still need the top upholstered, and put the glass in, but it's pretty much done!

    That flathead is badass too! Obnoxious as hell!

    The battery box...It's appropriate for some of the luck we had...so I figured it must carry around a box of the stuff...

    Thanks guys!

    It's a strong runner...I'll have MBL put up the video he took of the "test drive" around the yard.

    It sounds like a race car!

    The flattie is a 51 merc, 4" crank, ported and relieved, original Sharp heads, Offy dual intake, two 97's, "3/4 race cam" (whatever that actually means), and an msd distributor and coil.

    It's gonna be loads of fun!
