    Its been a 3 year project, so far. Got her started, pretty much first try. She sounds awesome.



    Its a '30 Model A with a '59 283 and a '60 T10. I got a halfazz build thread in my sig.

    Feels great! Happy camper!

    I hope the cam was already broken in and this was just the first time you fired the engine in the car!
    Sounds really good otherwise!

    one of the great moments when building a car - man I remember the first firing of my flatty.
    Still watching that video on my smartphone occasionally :)
    .. and remembering the cursing neighbor when I switched ignition off :D
