I was anxious to put some miles on the new engine, to both get it dialed in, and make sure the engine builder got everything right. There have been a few hiccups, mostly related to the carb, but the engine runs great. We've now cleared 650 miles, and are going strong!
Overall, I've been very pleasantly surprised by how well the car has gone back together. So far, all of the little things that usually don't work on an old car (dome light, cigarette lighter, etc.) have come back to life, with minimal effort.
We're having a ton of fun driving her ugly, but are looking forward to getting her into the shop at the end of summer!
