    Thanks Tim! The best part about this is the journey and all the people we have met and have become friends with.

    Well this weekend is the 2nd anniversary of us getting this car and starting this awesome journey we have all been on. We were hoping to fire it up this weekend but some schedules are a little full so we have to push it back a couple weeks. There will be a link for video on you tube as soon as I get that...of course thats after we fire it up.

    Thanks you guys for all the well wishes. This video sounds good but the bypass valve hung up and was running all the fuel back to the tank. In the video you can see it pop a few times...it was going lean. Pulled valve train off and retorqued some stuff and pulled bypass valve and replaced it. After that she started right up and popped pretty damn hard. It hurt my ears. I'll get more video up when I get that squared away. It sounds so good. Thanks to Mike Kuhl for dialing it all in and taking the time to walk us through all this fun stuff. One more fire up tonight with an oil change and we start to button her up...

    I think the body goes on this weekend. Stay tuned for more photos. If you want to see more video you can look up Ricky's Garage on you tube. There should be some good stuff there with one if the original crew members Chris Kielich.
