    After 3 years 1 month and 18 days we took our A out for the first ride. She ran and drove good with no leaks or IMG_4146.JPG surprises. The best part is my better half loves it.

    That first ride makes every minute of work that lead up to it worth it.

    Congrats. That first ride is sooo sweet after all that work.

    I LOVE the shorter wheel base! It just looks 'right' and so killer. Having the front axle behind the radiator and grill shell is the only way to go IMHO! Looks perfect!

    That's one fine A!
