On the road again, Oh Gawd its good to be on the road again...

On August 19th, 1999 I pulled up into my driveway with an old beat up forlorn '36 Chevy coupe in tow.
Tonight, Jan. 15, 2005 around 7:15 P.M. I fired it up, backed it out of the garage, and drove it around the block. WHAT A THRILL!
I wanted to share this here with you folks since many of you have been instrumental in making this a 'success'. There is still a lot to do, and a lot to learn about the engine PCM and the transmission TCU, but from now on, when I need to move it around to do those things, I (1) don't have to wrestle with a front wheel to turn it, (2) bust my butt pushing it around, and (3) throw a block under a wheel to stop it!
I particularly want to thank Chazmac for the most recent help figuring out what I did wrong when I installed the transmission.
This is not the best photo I have ever taken of it, but its sure is my favorite as of now... sitting out in the street!
