Getting Ready For First Car Show. Also a little test Burnout


 The exhaust is all hooked up, sounds like jungle drums

  First Burnout with the parisienne was gentle but still awesome...

Test Running the car up on blocks

[video=https://www.youtube.com/edit?video_id=IHxCCPlulq0&video_referrer=watch] Our nice new shiny super beafy 1350 series u joints and 3" drive shaft.

We are finally getting ready for the first car show for us this season in Pincher Creek and also in Fort McLeod.  We have not got the car to the Medicine Hat Track, but soon I hope.  Because every thing for the drive train is brand new, we have been taking our time doing break in and shaking it down gently looking for little bugs.  Found one with the brand new slip yoke for the drive shaft.  The center plug in the 1350 yoke had a pin hole leak ( you can spot the little puddle when we did the burn out, and the smoke on the exhaust in the under shot video)  and so we got a new one under warranty.  Pretty excited to get this car on the road for the first time since 1974! Mabey its first car show ever...And we had the appraisal done...

The videos look best in HD.  Will post some of it at our little car show this weekend
