Video's of First Drive in 25 yrs (Garage Build)

This is the video of the it's first test drive "shake down". My son was very excited to be able to finally drive it for the first time.
3 yrs ago we started this project, it had been sitting in my garage for 25 yrs without moving. My son is 18 now and will be leaving for the U.S. Coast Guard in September.

I want to thank everyone on this forum for giving me information to get me to this point. Still a lot of little work needs to be completed but the first drive with no major problems.

I know the videos are not the best. I will try to improve my video skills in the future.

Engine: 467 mild build
Fitech 600 EFI
Custom built Carbon Fiber air intake (Z06 filter in nose)
Trans: 700R4
Dewitts Radiator with dual Spal fans
Rear: 3.55 (tracdogg2 built)
Wheels: 18x9 front, 18x11 rear
Brakes: Wilwood front and back all new SS lines
Suspension: Performance Plus front mono, rear dual mount mono
Everything that connects to the frame is new
