    My maiden voyage in mine was from the PO's shop to mine. Probably about 25 miles on roads I didn't know. Just jumped in and went after checking the oil. When I got it back to my shop, I started checking a few things and thought I should have had this thing flatbedded. But I was so excited to finally get this car I wouldn't have cared if it looked like an episode of RoadKill, breaking down every couple miles. The PO was having second thoughts about selling it, and I wanted out of there before he changed his mind.

    Those pictures you just posted are priceless. I bet you are so happy to finally enjoy driving her. Post a couple of finished interior pictures when you get time. Once again beautiful car.
