    I guess I'll have to follow your progress here (not AACA). To get the good stuff any way. Is the HAMB like Cinemax late night and the AACA is Disney.?

    thanks all, the seller did a great job describing it prior to the sale,

    right now just getting it protected from the midwest moisture and then on to run steer and stop.
    probably won't be painted this season.

    yeah, you need to get to work on yours. You damned kids and your fancy A/C...

    ready for wiring and burn in.

    I bought a coolcraft radiator, I ASSUMED it would come with a cap and plug, but it didn't. it fit right in the stock mounts like it was made for it though. if it doesn't spit at me tomorrow I'm gonna call it a good radiator for the money.

    if it makes it through the burn in I'll post a vid and some better pics. no sense making a huge deal of it until I know how long it's gonna be in there.

    she sat all winter and I went out and wired and started it tonight. small fire due to holley clear window plug popping out, but it was nice to hear her run. it goes and turns, now I just have to make it stop.

    I know it's been 4 months since an update, but it was damned cold here...
