Fired up tonight, first crank. Music to old ears. Like a newborn cry. Altho a LOUD newborn.

Whether the car, or truck, is finished has nothing to do with how much fun it is to have it on the road. I like my shiney paint and upholstery but had lots of fun with the car before I had either. Drive em and enjoy them. That is what it is all about.
