Well, that looks pretty interesting. How's it run?
- The "couple of hours" comment tickled me - everytime I think that, it takes at least twice as long...

Humor runs deep in this project. That "couple of more hours " turned into many many hours which turned into STOP !!!! I threw my arms up and cried uncle. Took the entire setup off the car, and now I am just about finished installing a Holley Sniper EFI. The actual installation is really a piece of cake...……...but as with everything I do, I have to turn it into a science project. Pictures to follow soon

only piece left is the back window and it is road ready. I am loving the quick easy starting of the EFI unit

I bought this car in 1995...…..Finished it and gave it to my daughter. I get it back and put it in a garage for18 years. I cut it up, put in a V8, wasted a bunch of money on 4 deuces, put a Holley Sniper fuel injection on it...…...Then the CorvaVirus hits and I am in the house for 6 weeks. I did the self quarantine for 2 weeks only to have our governor add 4 more weeks to it...…………………………………………………………….The damn thing is ready to be driven...………...it needs to be driven.

I just wonder if I will ever get to drive it fast enough to scare myself
