You never once said the drive shaft was spinning when all this was going on. . .Or didn't you see it?
 
That is so cool. . . ..   Glad you finally got it.

We dismissed any thought if it - the third member had been in my Newport and the axles were new.  Had to be correct, right?  WRONG!
 
Crap!  At least all is well now, for the most part.  Now I'm having electrical problems, and I am never comfortable with eletricity.  The signal lights stopped working on the way to Van Nuys.  LAst night I checked the fuses and the relays.  With a new fuse I got the signals working but lost the tail lights and emergency flashers.  ???  I switched the two fuses and then I lost the signals, and did not get back the other two either!
 
More later.

In the meantime, here's 3 pictures of the car at Spring Fling last Saturday.  It drew a crowd every time Jerry fired it up, even Jay Leno!  The funny thing is people's responce to painting - it seems to be split 50-50.  Some say paint, some say leave it the way it is.  I need to start a poll! 
 
Enjoy!
 

Jerry cleaning it once we arrived.
 

I love this shot.  It shows the custom dash and the hood scoop.  It's functional, buy the way.
 

Cleaning done, now let the people arrive!  Ha!
 
Frances said Jerry has joined "the Dark Side."  He was never really interested in cars - now he's joining me at shows!  Darth Vader must be near!

By 10 a.m. it was surrounded.  There was a tricked-out Challenger sitting next to it when we came back from the swap.  The red Cordoba on the passenger side was for sale, 70,000 car and beautiful!  Owner took it home with no takers at $5,500.  It's a shame some cars cannot sell.

Latest change - dual exhausts!  My exhast man - Steve of No Muff - did the work.  He used the horneys because Jerry liked thier sound, but moved them to angle above the rear axle.  The car is considerably quieter now!

This was taken at the KC Fairgrounds during the Street Rod Nationals.  I have always LOVED dual tips!

"Steve's Muffler" formerly known as "No Muff Too Tuff."  He's trying to delete the latter.
 
Hobby: No, it's a nylon tie.  Steve used it to hold the speedo cable out of the way while he welded the the cut-outs in - their custom made.  I think he forgot to undo it.  We had not noticed it until we took this picture.
