    Took the car to a show at MIRA Friday despite the weather being rubbish, about 40 cars turned up from people who are based on site.

    I won..!

    Don't get him started on USA cars! His dad has lots of them and a business selling them/parts!

    Good spot, original SS from Canada :) has it since I was 16..! Didn’t look like that then though..

    Going to a show/auto jumble this morning around Desford - hoping to spot some Z’s...

    Been out in her quite a bit over the weekend, just got my new fuel sender from Mike @MJP so fitted it on the ramps at work whilst I had some down time.

    The old one was stuck and leaking from the sending wire mount point.

    I need to just get the speedo gear working correctly now - I believe it needs spacing closer to the gearbox but need to order the correct gear before I do this.

    Some pics:

    All those pics are great - underneath and engine bay especially. Did the car have the engine tray or did you buy it? I'd like one but £££

    Hi Mike,

    Thanks.

    Fortunately it came with it, I just had it shot blasted and powdercoated along with everything else.

    Car looks spot on. Did you paint the block yourself? What paint did you use?

    Hi
    Hi Geoff, yes it’s a GM or Chrysler Blue, it’s a slightly shade or two bluer than original but closest I could find in a can locally.

    Yes it is, it’s one of Sean’s exhausts and it sounds splendid..!

    I've got a series 1 rolling shell I could part with. Very solid with no welding.
