Loaded it on the trailer, but then decided to pull the string ...... Poke





Plugs pulled, fluids checked & then engine wound over for oil pressure check. All good, so plugs inserted & it fired right up with it settling back to a nice idle almost immediately (it was a warm day). So whoever built the engine & set up the carbs etc, did a great job.

However it immediately told us it was British built ........ :rotfl:



So the car now resides back at my friend's home while the front mudguards are finished. I trust they will send me pics of it finished as I will only get to see it Tuesday before I fly home .......

All done except the top. That will probably be after it's first event happening on the weekend of the 13-14th June in the Napa Valley, CA.

Might just try & make it over to see it debut ....... Laughing

No, it was not "road ready" while I was there. So probably next time I am over there.
