The project has started up again from a 3 month hiatus. During that time we found some more NOS parts, repairs to others that were needed, and a building up of funds. As you can probably guess this is not an inexpensive venture.

I hear you.... I can only imagine how much you have spent on the car... I know how much I have spent of the Supersport boat, and it does require 'refueling' of funds. :roll:
