a little up date here.... not been driving it it too much, except on Friday nites, a couple times a month. The 'used' engine is getting a littl louder lifter noise, but goes away after it gets hot. Got a click in the rear suspension when you step on it or hit the right bump. I think I'm getting some 'bump steer' effect at certain speed, but I think thats cause of the change in the trosion bars setting to raise the front height more. I beleive I was off on the ride height when I built the front frame and added the torsion bars set up . The car still draws a crowd ! Was at the Veterns Days Car show here testerday.... Get this ! At the car show, a man named Phil Spain came over, looked at the car, gave me lots of compliments on the car build, he said he was a friend of and worked with George Barris. Then later, I overheard him talking a another guy I knew, and knew he was for real !!! ....P S , I got a 2nd place trophy that day
