Guess who's been driven?
« on: August 15, 2008, 08:49:01 PM »



Oh yeah!  Take a peek...as seen from the INSIDE of where I work, taken last Friday



Here's a better shot, outside


My co-worker, Juliegh, parked on my left to help portect Chaz from getting any door dings.  She's cool, had a Camaro as her first car and got to work on it with her father, so she appreciates cars, and if one couldn't tell from her license plate, she's a HUGE Disney fan.  LOVES going to Disneyland when ever possible, has been to DisneyWorld and EuroDisneyland, too.

Anyway, I took a shot of the car that night, and while it was a little blurry due to my not being able to hold it steady while the aperture was open, I think it's kinda cool, in a nighttime fair ride kinda way.


I also have electronic ignition installed, which will later get tucked onto a bracket that will mount on the rear valley pan rail, but in the mean time it will stay here.


  I just got the car back today from a recommended shop that replaced the starter relay for me (I know I could have done it, but it's been over 105 freakin' degrees the past 2 days here! Gimme a break! ) and also did some
finer adjustments to the carb for the fast idle, and made sure the
timing was good , and it was adjusted to 11 BTDC (instead of the 5 BTDC for CAP
car, which is FINE with me), with 36 degrees total.

They also found my #5 cylinder is running at  a lower compression than everything else, and hopefully it's just a build-up of carbon.  I'll get an oil change done, maybe add some Marvel Mystery Oil to the case, and a bottle of Techroline to the tank and do a road trip (Hmmmmmmmm...Scotty???)

Oh, I saw this just don the street from the shop, and figured it was a cool thing (a visual pun, if you will)




I gotta say, the car runs almost perfect right now, with a barely perceptible stumble from said #5 cylinder, and now that the alternator has been upgraded to a 60A unit, since the 45A unit was toast, I'm a lot more comfortable about driving it.  Heck, I cruised around for the better part of an hour tonight after I finished my workout, since it was a beautiful summer night with a full moon!

I even listend to the radio, both AM and the FM Tuner that I added


Damn, but the car looks good...now I've got to see about gettin' the Vectors thrown on him

Here's a mock-up of the wheel center I plan on using. That's the appliqué from a 1979 Cordoba 300 rear tail lamp on the American Racing center emblem.


Here's how it looks without the 300 appliqué

Looking gooooood!

Gotta do something about those wheels soon....all that fine paint needs something more than cop type wheels.

I don't know if I would drive around CA with a license plate that says "goofy"..... though it may describe one's driving style

Chaz is looking good...I know how nice it is to FINALY get to cruise in the car after so much time and work.

I had a meeting at work the other night and brought the wagon out...I ended up going for a drive after the meeting, and then the next day used it to do my errands around town.
