I remember hanging out at tech inspection one year. The inspector told the driver, "Your car is on fire. You have 30 seconds to get out." The driver didn't hear (or ignored) what he said and kept telling anyone who was listening about what he had done to the car. After hearing the inspector repeat his statement a couple more times, I had to leave before I just broke out laughing.

The moral - Always be paying attention when you are in the car.

We are finishing the fuel lines, the oil system, and the headers.  The carb linkage, tow bar fixture, and radiator are complete except for the water lines.

Sparky.  Tnxs.  We have had a lot going on, but doing okay.  My interests in racing have become mostly technical, not much of a driver, notably after hearing this engine run.  This engine is not for the faint of heart.  R. John.
