    Good to see you making progress on that car. The road trip shouldn't be that bad if you have all the mechanical things squared away and a few bugs worked out. Think of it as back to back 750 mile trips that isn't so daunting.

    Mechanically and electrically there isn't much that isn't new or reworked...I'm trying to decide whether to buy tires or just bring extra spares...

    I was able to limp it around the block for the first time...the brakes need adjustment, exhaust and steering interfere with each other, and the trans still needs more fluid, but otherwise it's getting closer to daily driving...

    I drove it around town a bit and got to bring it home...it still needs some work, but it's finally mobile once again and sounds fantastic through turbo mufflers and slash cut oval megaphones...
