    Yes, no good on the fuel pump, been there, done that and on my way to a run. I too hope your car goes down a treat as you deserve the acknowledgement of a job well done.

    Junk new parts? Weird. Have fun at the show, I'm sure it will draw a lot of attention. I hope I can make our local show, that's at the end of July.

    Yeah, I say it's "new" but it was new a few years ago; just has very little runtime on it. The pump motor locked up for some reason.

    You'd think with a new fuel cell and all new lines that wouldn't be an issue but who knows what grit might have been in the gas. I put a filter in front of the pump this time.

    Got the car cleaned up and been cruising around for the last few days; a few little bugs to work out but really happy with it. I took it over to the original owner's house and took him for a ride; he was really happy to see it going again. That's him in the last picture. Last time he drove it was around 1980 and it was parked after that.

    It must've been a special moment to have him climb aboard.

    The car came out great.

    The car looks absolutely magnificent, and is a real credit to the fella that built it...you.
    Well done, top marks; it's beautiful.

    Thanks; it has been one long, adventurous journey on this one. Probably my last full blown frame off project, at least for a long time. It'll be nice to actually enjoy driving it instead of spending every spare moment trying to get it finished up. I am so ready to be working on something else!

    We did a nice long burnout out of his driveway and he's like, "Hey, it didn't used to do that when the old six cylinder was in there!" Lol!
