20 years of dreaming, 10 planning and sourcing, 3 doing (and $pending!)... she's home.

Spin around the block in the full rego fun-mobile... hard to keep the rubber on the road with the OEM tires and torqe-y 390/445 stroker!

A few more final setup/config issues to sort out now that the engine oiling issues are sorted and she's a runner. Alignment, some brake tweaks and some minor interior/trim and electrical gremlins (oil light is always on in the tach, but pressure is 70 psi....).

But home and driveable! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Very nice work Mert.

All you guys getting your cars on the road or seriously close to it are making me jealous now the sun is poking out down here in Mexico.

That is exciting Mert. Did any of my fastback parts get a second life in this vehicle?
