Those days you kinda wish you had just stayed in bed.

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

Long time no updates. I got the car on the road finally. Another MSD box, new this time, ended up putting a pair of Carters on it I rebuilt. Electric fan took a crap so I put a manual on it. Whole bunch of crazy small ****, put a new pair of shocks on the rear, one's I had on it the bushings started coming a part. With a little carb tuning took it out yesterday and this thing will fly. I'll upload some pics shortly.

Here's a couple pics, I know I left out a lot of stuff. Going to repaint and put the vinyl top on this winter, plus some interior work.

Went to a cruise in Sat evening, stopped to getsomething to eat and seen left rear wheel smoking. Checked it out and the axle seal was leaking, new seals, bearings and axles with 80 miles on them and done have a leak. I've never seen so many new parts fail, I think quality is out the widow now a days. There was a ton of cars there, at least 8 55 chevies, pretty nice cruise in. Next Sat the Cynthiana Rod Run, there will be at least 1400 cars of all kinds there. Thanks for the positive comments!
