Hey Rudy,

How did your new engine fair this last year? If I remember right, you kinda broke it in on the Tour.

What other work have you done to her lately?

Rich,

The engine is ok...I think. Going through Pennsylvania last summer I had the temp gauge pegged full hot for about 50 miles. I don't think it hurt it, but I'm told to be wary because the effects might show up later. I put another 8000 miles on it afterwards, sooooooo.:huh:

Anyway, I'm in process of some manifold work, tidying up some electrical stuff, new L88 high rise style hood, the rad and fans, and then finish with new suspension bushings all around.

I plan to be in the body and paint shop for the hood early April. Then go cruising:excited:

Sounds like you have been keeping busy. Good luck on getting her back together.

Maybe our paths will cross again this summer!

For all your projects, you should snap some pictures as you go along, it'd make for a nice post.

I remember the morning Pat took that pic. We were heading out to Byron Dragstrip. It was like Nov.10 or something.......and it was a bit chilly. What worried me most was getting caught in a rain storm that day. I don't think the sun broke through until late afternoon.

Yep, that picture was taken on the way to Byron, it turned out to be a REALLY sexy picture.
