    That is a nice color combo. And I love the wheels. It should look smashing when done.

    Ironed out little bits and took her out for the first time. Car had only 150 miles when received. Drove 80 miles today. Speeds to 100. 4,200 RPM. NO PROBLEMS. 86 degrees. Motor missing. I will address that. My be a bad spark plug. Did not effect drive. But did cause acceleration problem. Happy I need to address AC. Hot for an old guy. Tiring

    Keep me posted on what you find Mitch...
    but don't forget, we've got 135 mains in the carbs to keep up with the HC pistons and they were tuned at below zero temps in Jan/Feb...so don't rule that out.

    At 100 mom is great. I just need to get her through this. Crushed the femur top. They did a three screw fix. Little incision. If she can function it will be good. She is in rehab. A very sorry place. Not geared for her needs. So I am working on a solution. A nurse asst. got mom up and walking. First time in a week. Rehab. Staff has done nothing for a week. So I hired the aide full time to look after mom.

    Today. Perfect. Steering a bit tight and feels heavy. Comparing my other 400. The 550 is much easier to steer. Sound is great. Brett left the cross over pipe out so the car has a good sound. I have a 400 with 5,900. It is so quite I cannot hear it run😞. We all know. The more sound. The more power😄. I had a Bentely try to pass me.child that I am I left him in the dust😆. I got mom to a Neuro. Unit. She was able to walk to the bathroom. A big plus. Things looking up.
