    My \'73 lives!

    I finaly got my '73 back together. It still needs a few things-front shocks & zero rates, a hood, R/H seat & belt, front bumper trimed & 8274 installed-BUT IT IS DRIVABLE! The only major thing I have to fix is it won't run at idle. It's either a vaccuum leak or to big of a gap on the plugs.
    I just got back from the drive in months. It was a blast- no top, doors or tailgate. The weather is perfect, too. Well back to work,

    IT"S ABOUT TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL. Glad to hear it's back on the road. Hurry up and get the little stuff done and we will go hit a trail .
    Hell I might have to come see it and drop off the axle tomorrow. E-mail me dirrections to your place again, It's been a while. If I don't get to involved in this trailer rebuild I'll try to swing by.
