    When you FINALLY get a driver back on the road, after a year without a cool daily...I love, LOVE this thing already...its gonna be a highway star...and a killer parts chaser, to boot...

    Building the truck was, and is fun...and its been great, but, a drag car just can't be driven down the turnpike at 90....:D

    Been three days, and so far, I only need to address a few expected problems...motor was sitting, so she barfed up a lot of mud into the Radiator, and its collapsing the bottom hose when you really get some rpm's up, so its gunked up pretty good, and running a tad on the hot side, and the steering box needs a re-build, but...it runs like a top!

    Probably the first time I EVER got a mystery motor/trans that didn't smoke and have 5 lbs. of oil pressure! Well...like they say, even the losers get lucky sometimes...Lol...

    Well...it looks a LOT nicer in pix, I won't lie, but...she will be getting better all the time...I think we might drop it a bit, but not much, because I really want to be able to still use it as a work horse....plans are to get the whole thing in a nice gloss black in a year or so, but, for now...she is at least half presentable!;)

    Like all things...its never done!

    Old cars....they're just a part of everything, if they're a part of anything for you, aren't they?
    Milemarkers....They bring just a little more joy to everyones face, no matter whether they are into them or not...everyone, or at least ALMOST everyone, somehow seems to respond to them....

    They are magic....:cool:
