Needless to say...I am SUPER excited.

I was in the garage last night until 1:30, and I was so mad because the car was ready to be fired but too late LOL

Today I filled up the transmission, changed the oil and pumped the carb once. Fired up first try and idles like a dream!



All of the wiring works, fans are good, water pump runs, gauges and all the lights are perfect. I couldnt be happier! Few more odds and ends and the car will be cruising down the street.

Excuse the poor sound quality. I had the wrong rear cover on the go-pro.

If he is still there. Was it Mr. Garganta or the larger guy with brown hair, beard, and was from socal?

I bet, if you call or go there to speak to an education manager in charge of the hot rod and power and performance class, I bet he can get you in at the end of a week #3 before finals.

Ok...this is definitely in the cards for my '74 Impala after seeing the video. Laughing

Funny hearing that starter sound from a boxy Caprice.

Good work, almost done!
