Thanks everyone! Im pretty excited to have something that runs and drives. Im trying to finish up my 31 av8 roadster, but wanted something i could take the family out and cruise. Ive got a few bugs to work out, but she'll be roadworthy soon. The family is excited about the car. Especially my 6 year old daughter, she says its her car! Haha

Good luck with it, it's beautiful. While you're working on the fuel system you should install an electric fuel pump. That way you can turn it on in the heat if it starts to get vapor lock. Try to run non-ethanol fuel in it also, ethanol eats away at the fuel pump, carburetor, and even the hose connecting the filler pipe to the tank.

Yep! Shes the only one i can get to help me in the shop. My son could care less, video games and basketball is all he cares about. Hes 11, i bought him a 66 f100 to build to drive to high school. Hopefully he'll take an interest soon. I dont force it on him. Heres my little girl helping on the roadster, in high heels haha
