Glad it was something simple.
The good thing it that you will never make that mistake again.

BTW. Nice goon!

Made the commute to work. I can say that the New Orleans roads are not the friendliest on lowered cars.

Some of you asked about the spring rating up front. I guess I can't complain, it's a little bouncy on rough roads, but it's also saved me from bottoming out.

Added some personal flair to the underside of the hood.

Team, I've been chasing a hesitation issue like a madman. The wagon is choking up under acceleration.

I took the engine from bone-stock and swapped out the OE carb for a Weber 32/36 DGV, new plugs, new wires, Pertronix EIM, Pertronix Coil, I think I timed it right, new mechanical fuel pump, new fuel filter. Still have issues.

I uploaded a video to Youtube, here:

Let me know what you guys think.
