that's a cool gauge pod....I can see why you at such a young age has so much enthusiasm and interest.

Welcome to the site , you fit right in....
too bad you don't fit behind the steering wheel yet....

Hint: take the front seat out, find a milk crate and have a blast leaving the driveway sideways...... [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/burnout.gif[/img] [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/[/img]

If it runs hot, then there's a problem.
First, get the rad rebuilt.

I actually fit well at 5'8&quot;. I'll have to tell Pappaw (just what I call grandpa) about having it rebuilt. It only really gets hot in traffic. Cruising, it's fine.
Besides, too much respect for my family and the car to even try it.
As far as the mural, I don't have a scanner. Sorry.
