I installed the new, longer drive shaft after getting the pinion angle
right and took a 50 mile drive. Since nothing fell off and it pulled
strong to over 90 MPH I figure it's ready to offer to the NG to play
with. It still needs the stock seats recovered or replaced, speakers
added for the stereo and some tweaking.
I runs and drives fine, but I don't know if I'd drive it cross country
with out some local beta testing. As you may recall Warren had over 25K
in the car when I bought it and I've got another 2K in it by now without
labor. I'd sell it to a NG'er for 13K before doing anymore for EBAY.

Here's some of the stuff on the car, and pictures are here:

Oh, to sleep...perchance to dream!! If only I could win the Lotto!
I guess I'll have to be content with what I have....AND the raffle-Hawk I'm about to win!

I got the Avanti detailed today...she's gleaming now!! The poor guy doing it said people were
interrupting him all day long, asking questions about it!

FOUL! FOUL! It ain't fair! I think judges should deduct for detailing

140-150 degrees so far, might have to adjust the thermostat for a later
fan cut in.
