Beast needed a bit of coaxing to come to life


I never really drove the Beast last season, had a peek in November 2015 and tried to crank it over but there was a spark shower from starter so I slammed the door shut and forgot about it. 

Paid a visit to it this weekend and rolled it out of the garage. Put another starter in and made up a new positive lead, helped by 65Camino and 2 hours later she's roaring again. Hope to drive it a bit this year.

I just want to know who's lying under the car and where's the jack stand for safety? I'll pretend it's there and we can't see it!

Good stuff, now go burn some rubber!

 Actually two jack stands and the car is sitting on them. one on side rail behind disposable Darryl and the other on the main crossmember under the engine.

Good to hear she is ready to roll and everyone is being safe. Sounds like Darryl will have a new nickname, DD. Disposable Darryl has a ring to it but may not be very complimentary.

Nice! Taking an old car out for a relaxing cruise is great therapy.
