    I was born when we had an operator on the phone ( number was " 91-J " ) and the first TV I saw looked like an oscilloscope- gray and green picture. Then there was the 10 mile walk to school, after getting up at 4am to do chores........................

    Anyway, today I bolted the rear fenders on and put the drag slicks back on. I also got a dashboard "Virgin Mary" yesterday at the Dragway swap meet. Can't be TOO careful!

    We still have a rotary phone... and when I was a little kid we had an old black and white tv.. that was fun.

    Come on, Stogy, how am I going to concentrate with a Hula girl in front of me?
    "Left turn, Clyde!"

    And I have an extra set of tail light bezels- 4 drinks at a time! ( Ronnie didn't mention fluid ounce capacity- off to the test lab)

    Gracias, Mr. Pete- finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel ( or is it headlights coming at me?)
    Road testing time, in increments of 20 mph- so far all pieces accounted for and no reported deaths or too much collateral damage.

    Couldn't decide on what to use for a gas pedal, so I made one- nice and simple, 1/2" rod through a shock bushing that was welded to a plate, 90* bend, and an arm for carb linkage. Eventually, the Bigfoot will go on that I got from Ray "onekoolkat" DSCN3597.JPG

    Set of "Weiand" valve covers I scored the other day- had to have them! Also dug out a highly "patina'd" top for my air cleaner- FUNKY! Cleaned with a wire brush and clear coated. DSCN3623.JPG DSCN3624.JPG

    That's it- out playing in the street with the green car. Hope you guys have enjoyed this as much as I have. Thanks again to all who participated in any way. Time for fine tuning now, and some work on the other car over the "off season".

    Be safe, and have fun. Mike DSCN3602.JPG

    Mike,
    The car looks like a time capsule of what some kid did way back in the day! You did an excellent job on this car and should be proud of yourself!
