    That's a cool picture of your son working on the motor. My Dad started teaching me at about 10 years old and I've been hooked ever since. Your video of your first drive is pretty cool too. That must have been a blast!

    spent a few hours on the grill. After 20 plus years of hanging on the wall it got beyond NASTY

    Wife wasn't too keen on my washing it off in the kitchen sink !!

    I missed this thread also. You guys worked your butt's off to do this much work and have it up and driving in four months. Nice work. Love the lightening holes in the front frame rails.

    took the fam out for ice cream tonight

    Broke down after I flipped on the headlights. Seems I overloaded my elctrical system

    Electric water pump, fan, fuel pump, etc.etc.

    I added a 40 amp breaker that just kept popping. I'm going to have to up it.
