Congrats you deserve it bigtime and thanks for the musical interlude...
Mike - this is awesome beyond words - CONGRATS MAN! I didn't think you were gonna get the BB going that fast! Still thought you had to go through more wiring - transmission - brakes and then some! Lanny will be AMAZED when he looks at your video!
I hope I don’t jam up the tape rewinding and playing it over and over

Thanks Dave! So excited! I could hardly believe it when it started backing up, ha!
Thanks Stogy! You’re welcome!
Thanks Mike! Yes I went through the brakes and everything else as I was waiting on engine parts and the like. Wanted to be ready to go as soon as the opportunity presented itself!
I have a couple of in car vids my wife took. Neither of us can seem to get into the YouTube account so I may have to start another!
Here are a couple shots out in the yard for fun!
Bet you can't WAIT to get her registered and go on your first legal cruise!!
Breaking the law' breaking the law'. I'd be driving it to work, to the grocery store, just to drive... (-;
Stoked keep posting videos and pics they're not getting old-!!!!

Congratulations on a dream come true! I literally just found this thread today and just read the whole thing! What great timing!
Fantastic ! - How ausome is that !! Good Work.
Finally1 I am stoked for you Mike. Just an awesome thread to follow. Lanny must be very happy by now (assuming he saw the video by this hour) I'd be rolling around town in that hot rod asap!
Talk about a long-lasting grin! Congratulations!
This video got me so excited when I saw it last night. What an accomplishment. Stoked for you dude!

It is a bit of a technical exercise to get video on here...rewarding but I wish a little easier...and you may have pushed the Batchelor Button to deliver...... @cactus1...
TELL HIM TUCK!!! From what I know, you take a video with your smart phone, create a video on YouTube, then copy the link from YouTube, then paste it on our threads. But Tuck, Mike mentioned that he tried to post their videos on YouTube, but were unsuccessful. By the way, I'm stoked watching your build of the '31 Drag Car, just subscribed. Tuck, are you the dude who owned a roadster with very unique headers and featured in the "Mad Fabricators" series videos?
I wasn't even born yet... Born two years later Stogy - missed the entire car culture - 50's, 60's and 70's... Trying to do my best making up for it.
Just saw your video...stoked for ya ! Rod on!
Congrats on getting it rolling, I bet that was an awesome feeling.
You are not at all alone Mike...I was an often referred to as terrible 2 then...so my ole hotrod is my time machine back to then to dream a little albiet it was an inspired hotrod not as @cactus1's BB real deal.
That said I feel the builder of my car pulled it of in style.
Speaking of Cactus has he complied with @Tuck's subtle demand...
Dang son you don't play, haha! Well it took the collective efforts of my wife and myself but we managed to get the you tube to work again so check this out...
(Not sure why it chose my ugly mug as the cover page??? Whatevs?)
P.S. We are laughing because the door handle fell off, ha!
Luckily it didn’t fall out...
Your last video was much more fun to watch Mike! I suppose Lanny hasn't seen any of your vids and photos as of yet... Soon enough!
I had emailed the first one to him earlier in the day. I heard back from him tonight. I think he is as giddy as I am? Ha!
No that's my buddy Bob Bleed- we built my first roadster in his shop and was one one of the early videos called the Tuckster (-; good times!
My dream is to some day introduce my roadster to the Batchelor Button in hopes they hit it off, and hatch roadster babies. ️️
Everyone knows the reason farm boys built roadsters was to get chicks.
The pics rule Mikey!!!!
As Fred would say...Yabba Dabba Doooo!!!!...Hey do you guys have permanent sunsets over there just to rub paradise in our faces a little more?
Mike, I figured out where your place is. I took some clues from a couple things in the background that looked familiar. I'll have to come visit sometime and see this great car in person.
