The old 63 cranked right up. Jon had his jumper box & squirted a little fluid on the air cleaners. Not too shabby for 2 year old gas in the tank. Tires are holding air, and the car idled for a good 20-30 minutes. Idled with the help of a deflated football jammed on the pedal. Jon got the trailer positioned just right, and we drove her ride into place without issue. It is ready to be driven.

It needs some TLC this weekend:
fuel lines, fresh gas, brake lines (hard & soft), change brake pads (which I have), fresh Brad Penn, & a wash.

Clyde, if you have brake lines, fuel lines, and Brad Penn handy, that would be great. If not, we'll improvise.

This car wants to be driven again, and I'm excited about hitting the road again. I'd post pictures, but I forgot how too Smile

I'm looking forward to this weekend. Stay away rain!

Got ya covered Steve.

I plan on:
Driving both host Bugs and doing anything they need
Helping Greg with his door rebuild
Helping with Rick's Bug
Doing some timing/head temp experiments with Stephanie's Bus
Checking out Pat's kadrons and engine issues
Adding seat heaters to my Scat seats
Possibly front pads and oil change on my E350 (HERESY!)
And whatever else needed, til I get grumpy and need a hug.

Looking forward to it!
