Let us know how it goes in Bonneville. I agree, it would be a great experience just to be there and see the stuff that runs.

Got home from a week away and my carb kit for the '56 was there. Put it back together, installed in the car and it fired right up. Tomorrow will go for a good road test.

Finally finished one of the sets of wheels I bought from rabbit64cs. Built a jig using an old furnace motor and wheel hub to spin them. Started sanding at 120 and finished at 1500 wet. polished with high speed and rouge. Bead blasted centers, light coat of primer. Finished with Stainless Steel paint. Turned out pretty well

I drove one of those when they were new (before I was old enough to have a license). A nice little car when no one wanted little cars, plus it was British and didn't like winter.

A friend had one back in high school.
We did a big burn out in front of the school one day ... he rev'd it up and I shot a CO2 extinguisher underneath from the passenger side. Fooled just about everyone.

Hey Roger.  If those parts are stored in your shed it looks kinda empty from when I saw it!  I know you were thinning the herd but...

The reason I'm asking if it's original is I have a set of original heads from a 74 GTO, they are unique.
