    IT STARTED!!!! And on the first try too. I couldnt beleive after it sat for two years and I had to redo almost every piece on it that it started on the very first try. It purrs like a kitten. (jeremy check your answering machine, its on there hehe).

    Im still shocked. I guess all that soldering and cussing and praying worked lol. . There is no trace of a fire in there except for the hood which ill have painted soon. When I looked under the hood a year ago and saw everything taken apart and burnt to a crisp I never thought it would go this good.

    Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts. I cant wait to drive it now. Im so happy! /forums/images/icons/smile.gif /forums/images/icons/smile.gif /forums/images/icons/smile.gif


    Ill have the new pictures of it all done on my site soon. Ive got so many to add. Especially the one of me and my mother doing the happy dance in the driveway LOL. I hope you all are doing well too and having as good of a weekend as I am having /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
