...First time I've sat in the driver seat in probably a year or more.  Something about having a 2-year-old in the house just makes time go away, and having the old car 60 miles away doesn't help, either.  In any event, today was a chance to look over the old girl, put this year's registration sticker in the windshield, and install a new battery.  With a new battery sitting there, it was just too tempting to not try and fire the old girl up.  It's been close to 3 years since she was fired up last - I was winterizing her when a freeze plug blew out, dumping my fresh antifreeze out the side of the block.
Well, the freeze plug is still blown out, but I figured I'd only run it for a little bit.  Quick once-over to pull the rat nests out of the heat risers - dang it!  Rat chewed through a spark plug wire!  Pulled one off the other 440 (thank goodness for spare parts).  Plug it in, dribble some stale gas in the AVS, hit the key....  LIFE!!
She doesn't idle worth a flip, which you'd expect for an old carb sitting for a couple years, but it sure is nice making that old 440 come to life.  Revs quick for a big engine, too.  Can't wait to get the car inspected and start making a few short trips to shake her down.
I love my Fury!
