That's awesome, but man is your windshield cloudy..... Super noticeable on the video.


Rear Wheel Drive, the way God intended.
If a car is being pulled from the front, doesn't that mean it's being towed?

Yea the car has needed a good cleaning the whole time I've had it. Now that it is running with out shutting down I will get her out when it gets warmer and give them all a good cleaning.

bled the brakes on my project.  found some leaks.

 

 

PROTIP: bleed the brakes before you put the motor in, save yourself a headache and cramped hands.

Sitting here at work and on Svengoolie there was a Godzilla movie Son of Godzilla from 67 in color and at the beginning of it looking at the traffic scene there was a Bluebird and a 520 looking truck, wish I had gotten a pic to post.

Installed a steering box brace as well as a brake master cylinder brace, can't wait to see if there is a noticeable difference in steering and brake feel.  Also wired up the front side markers.

I asked cause I had my cars sit for a long time (started having seizures and could not drive until I was seizure free for 6 months. That went on for about 3 years) and the gas got funky and got some rust in the tanks. That has been a pain but I learned from it, but if it's only been a couple of months then you should be fine. When the gas gets old from sitting it will smell like varnish when you run it. At that point you should drain it and not use it because it can do damage to the motor. I use only no ethanol in all my old cars now and I keep them running so I don't have that issue any more.

Ya I know, I cringe when I take her out, so far so good . I only put her around her and there just got the gas tank back in. Gotta get her cleaned up when it gets warm again and drop that tail pipe and stop that rattle. Also put another rear bumper on.
