He is rebuilding his motor in his home garage ..... by himself. Including installation of the ADTR blower.

Man that is simply beautiful!!!!

I recall calling shotgun first, however, if I recall, you need direct line of site to said vehicle, AND immediate access to seat (i.e. Walking to car to get in and drive).

I am content with right rear seat.

Looks great. Losing the huge vacuum booster is reason enough for the hydraulic unit.

Thank you all. Getting close to the finish line.

Of course, Lifespeed is already out performing with me the oil circulating Vortech blower (vs a sealed unit) and his custom 9.0 rear end from Maier Racing. Good news is I will receive the same blower from ADTR and 9.0 rear end from Mike Maier following Lifespeed paving the way.

Looks like a great car for the Hot Rod Tour.

What is the thinking behind the 9.0 rear end?
