A little over a week ago I hung the nose (posted some pics in the bodyshop section) and last night I test fit the headlight assembiles and grill. I also wired the front lights. It's really starting to look like a car. I even have gone on a few short test drives. Gettin' closer to completion by the day. I still have a few months to go though. I'll post some better pictures when I can get some outdoor shots with some sunlight.

So, I'll have one at 9:00pm. If you have yours at 6:00pm your time, we'll have them together... just a few thousand miles apart.. LOL.

Hey Doug,
I do have a short video of the car running with open headers (I've posted it in the past). The sound isn't great though. This was done last Sept. when I first got the car running and before the front sheet metal was on. I have since done exhaust (and lots of other stuff).

Okay, that's 3 of us havin' a beer (or more) later... anyone else up for a few?

Sorry about that Jerome. I have to confess, I didn't stop at 4 last night. I had few extra just to be sure...LOL. But no headache this morning for me. It's "Thursty Thursday" in my neck of the woods, so I may have one ot two tonight. But I'll go easy. I have plenty of work to do on the car in the next few days. The weather has sucked the last few days and from what I can see it's gonna stay cold and rainy for the next few days. That sucks because I really feel like taking the car out for another shakedown drive. I think my rears tires have about twice them mileage on them compaired to the fronts. The rears seem to be spinning alot on the test drives..LOL.
