    After a very long rebuild and much updating, this finally came home this weekend. I was able to take it out a couple of times this weekend - pure joy. Incredible sound and performance. A special thanks goes out to Vince for completing this project and getting this car working the way it should have always worked - but never had.

    Gorgeous! Congratulations on getting it back in hand. It would fit right in at our Caffeine and Gasoline Spring Drive this coming weekend!

    Thanks to all. I will post a few more pics later in the week, especially of the engine and peripherals. Lots of work done there.

    Dion, it certainly is better to have more than half of the cylinders working!!!

    mrdezyne, can't make it this weekend. I am on call. Looks like it will be a nice event.

    Chris, I hope to bring it to Crescent this year. Unless it is 98 degrees again. Would be way too hot in the drivers seat!!! :(

    There is nothing like the sound of a vintage Ferrari V12 through straight pipes!!!!!

    Beautiful car I saw as the work progressed with Vince. Great choice of the ignition system which I also had Vince put on my car and it has been fantastic.

    Thanks Randy. You are missed up here. Vintage V12 through straight pipes is even better than the 355 with level 3 capristo!!

    Sorry I missed you Russ. I am very please with this system. Glad to hear your car is working well.

    Thanks, Steve. I can't begin to tell you how much I miss everything (except the tornadoes) up there too. Let's catch up soon.

    I have been getting it on the road quite a bit. Seems to be real well sorted. Still shaking down stuff like full fuel range, suspension tweaks, etc. Just little stuff. It may just make it to Crescent this year.
