Motor upgrade and trans refresh may be on deck after garage paint and wiring. Maybe.

Today's fun. Thankfully the heat in the Ghia roasts.

Thanks guys. All in due time perhaps....I want to get my $$ worth out of that rebuilt 36'er. The car drives great as-is.

I'm still torn between wasting money on an Okrassa 36'er or begging Franz to build a vintage-looking stroker like he's done for the Westies. I'm in no rush to do anything motor-wise (sorry Scott Smile ) though.

Ha! Not so much a dead horse, more like beating a stubborn mule....it may eventually relent. Wink

A little late, but happy 1 year Ghiaversary! The ol' lowlight landed in Charleston a year ago on 1/24/16. I registered the car w/ 46,507 showing on the odometer...it now reads 51,307 as it sits out in the parking lot from this morning's drive to work....4,800 miles for the year (plus a week), not too bad. Hope I can log that much or more in the coming year. Just wanted to offer one more tip o' the hat to Josh, Jerrod, Johnny and KCW. =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>

So far just a few neighborhood laps...hopefully registration will be complete tomorrow (I struck out on Friday's attempt). My family loves it, my 5 year-old already asked if she can have it when she's old enough. I should have used my Go-Pro to film her reaction to her first ride; just pure joy. And those rear harnesses are perfect. It looks great from every angle...wheels, stance, motor hums, everything works....thanks again to all involved! =D> =D> =D>

Found a deal on a new-in-box WW dual port kit, so I bought it. Now it'll be able to sit on the shelf of my garage instead of the guy's I bought it from. Smile

Maybe with some Speedwell manifolds and Webber 40's to make the Triple J logo a reality? Smile Wink :-#

It may just be sitting but it is still progress Pete. Smile

Not to be overly nerdy but those are actually Weber 36's and the guy is having a hell of a time getting them tuned in (some are saying the little 36's are still too big for his combo).

And then there is this. You need a lot of 36'er to keep up with 48's!!!
