Same here. I really have no need for more y-blocks, especially being as young as I am, but I have a weird fascination with them. Probably why I have a Lincoln 317 Y sitting in the shop on a stand that needs a complete overhaul but itíll cost more than itís really worth. Aside from the cool factor.

Looking really good JB, black pipes look way better than purple.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Glad everyone else agrees with the black. The biggest thing was making the woman happy with it.

Finished up the overflow tank today. Then installed a vent in the fuel tank. Tomorrow Iíll get the piece above the windshield made and then I can work on the windshield frame. Should keep me busy until more parts show up.

Over the last few days, built an air cleaner, replaced the glass fuel filter with a Holley 100micron, checked my wiring, found a piece of hose that fit as perfect as you could ask for the upper radiator hose, and got my carb linkage sorted out proper. Need to make a lower radiator hose, get my oil filter sorted out, fill her with fluids, replace the battery, and sheíll be ready to fire up. Only thing really left to do to make her driveable is Bleed the brakes and get a piece of glass cut for the window and mirrors. I have to say, in 9 months, this is the quickest any of my builds have gone to this point. Iíve been talked into going to Rat City again in April so sheís gotta get registered and insured by then.

Looks really good JB, you build a car in 9 months and some of the design changes on mine took 9 months.
