Doesn't necessarily mean that it was legal the whole way. :D Out of curiosity I looked it up. Triple towing is allowed in the following states: Alaska Arizona Arkansas California Colorado Idaho Illinois Indiana Iowa Kansas Kentucky Louisiana Maryland Michigan Minnesota Mississippi Missouri Montana Nebraska Nevada New Mexico North Dakota Ohio Oklahoma South Dakot

I like the look of the cover, If I have a choice, my top always down in the summer, up in the winter storage, unless I get caught in the rain.

I thought long and hard about the colors and really liked the "concept" 64 that I saw awhile back and used that as my inspiration. It was this car:

Ken, Just trying to figure out all the hose connections. The first rubber hose that goes to the left is the one with the orifice, and connects to the cross over pipe? The next one up is the drain back for oil The next is the one that originally went into the air cleaner, now enters the catch can. Lastly, where does the upper hose out of the catch can go to, open air?

A regular ignition system will not work with out an alternator/battery feeding the coil. A magneto does not require the outside electricity, that is what is meant by "Non-electrically powered ignition"

Went for a 100 ft cruse! Up and down the driveway. Even though it was a short trip it was fun for us and there were no surprises.

I think the issue is that the gears I believe are case hardened, so once you are through the surface layer the material below is not hard. I would think you will see abnormal ware if the pitting is on a contact surface.

It is sooooooo awesome to start with a straight, rust free car up here in the salt belt. I will be creating a new build thread for this one. Here it is:

Rebar and mesh, tubing tied to mesh. All sunk under floor. I made sure to not put tubing under where I was going to bolt my lift to the floor. You will notice in the back left of the picture the area wh

I would build the pole barn, it will keep you out of the elements till you can get the floor in. With pole barns most often the structure is built then floor completed. My I make a "look ahead" suggestion. As you know up here in the winter gets cold and if you want to do work if you heat the structure no matter what you feet will still be cold. When it comes time for the slab if you w

I have compound turbo's can get 60psi of boost, could you imagine a spyder with 60 psi? ::o This puts out 1200 foot pounds if needed. I have upgraded the whole truck to handle the power, 2013 6 speed with steel girdle around it so it doesn't flex. Suspension, rear end etc. And they had no computer to mess things up!
