That looks sweeeeeet! He did a great job to replicate them. I think it looks better with the air dam off; looks more like a rally car.

Yeah, I think it looks better without a air dam. Reminds me of an African Safari rally type car with the coupe grille.

Havent posted in a while. I went to JCCS with Art. 17 hour road trip, she did 85 down the hwy no issues, constant looks. Felt weird being in shasta with her with no Arthur :(

Alt went out in eugene, so coasted home on fumes. The next weekend i took her out fresh tank and she stalled and died? Well turns out 2 bolts stripped in the carb, and she had been pissing fuel. Finally got her running but was still leaking to much fuel, drove fine, but as soon as you sat and idled for a minuite fuel built up and she would smoke and run rich till she burnt off the built up fuel. So time for a new carb.

Old carb.

Looked for a good carb rebuilder, got recommended to National Carb in florida. So far nothing but great things to say about them. We have ice and snow here so i have yet to take her on a test drive, but she no loner runs rich, and idles fine, and seems fine under load in the garage, so thats a good sign.
