      Good job!

      I will indeed! It's quite the process of finding a decent starting point up here in Canada. It will come along sooner or later so it's just a matter of time haha.

      What are you plans for it now?

      Just began the process of building a 1641sp. Line bored, case savers, 100 cam, going to keep it simple and as stock looking as possible. Full carpet kit, insulation, and 12v conversion. Hopefully before dec 3rd as we have a parade...

      Oh and mud flaps....

      Going to rebuild the 40 horse thats in it. Media blast and paint all the tins, yada yada yada. Make it look and run fresh. Dont know what I'm going to do with it then.

      I try to drive it everyday, some days it may only be 10 miles but I try.

      Lately she been smoking, I replaced the oil cooler seals and it only seemed to get worse. (it was leaking there). I think this is a scenario of "your only a strong as your weakest link" time to move on to bigger and hopefully better things.
      One of the strangest things I ever seen, if I retard the timing the smoking was reduced. It doesn't really smoke at idle just into the higher rpm's. That is why retarding the distributor reduced that. But why?

      That should be a build thread for the wagon. There has been a few more upgrades since then though. should have some pics with fogs next week sometime. Right now my main project been the bike, even though the bug is out of commission, generator went out and i have a replacement; all my time been going into the stingray. Thanks for the compliments!

      Sounds good!

      I go to lees almost everyday after work. It's only a few miles from the house. The meat grinder is in the pic but shadowed.
