When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when I’m gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Thank you everyone!

No doubt on the new round of “what is it”! I drove it to the gas station just a block from the shop to top off the fuel and answered that question 2 times in the short time I was there. One guy asked if he could take a pic and one lady asked if she could take a picture for her boyfriend.

That is the first thing out of most everyone’s mouth or is that a kit car? However, it’s been that way since we built it. This time around it just looks so much more refined is the word I’ll use. Ron’s attention to detail really paid off on this project. It has exceeded both his and my vision!

Also, regarding the Edelbrock Pro Flo 4 EFI system…I’m impressed so far. It fired up first time we tried and every time since. There is a noticeable increased response in acceleration. No hesitation, no spitting or sputtering…just give me more if you dare!

I had to replace the starter yesterday. So while in the shop and on the lift an oil change was in order.

We had to do some rearranging of Ron’s shop the last week or so due to some unforeseen events. We expect to have that under control and ready to finish the front trim pieces for the finale body parts to be painted next week.

We’re looking for a company that can make custom emblems. Sinice this is the third rebuild and my last, we’re looking to find someone who can make an emblem to mount along the lower edge of the hood close to the cockpit that reads “Gold Series III” written in script and gold plated.

In the meantime, we’ve been out enjoying our time behind the wheel!

Thanks Bob! I can tell you I’m enjoying every mile! I’ve put almost a thousand miles on since bringing it back home. I have another short trip planned tomorrow.

Sorry, my partner has been under the weather lately so we haven’t accomplished much other than trying to get him feeling better! We’ll be back at it soon after he gets well.

Lots of “what is it? ……kit car?

I pieced together some of the factual info for our local print shop to take my thoughts and refine them like refining the car. Suppose to have it ready to proof read later this week. My first car show is n September. My goal is to have this printed on some foam board, maybe framed to help preserve it over time.
