What do you do with 365 used rubbers? Make a tire and call it a Good Year.

I have a few paint touch ups to do as well (the inside of the one door ect)

all in all not a killer show car but I'm pretty happy so far

I smile when I see that shifter I bought it in a snow storm in reno when I was 21 with my mom (I'm 47 now)

I'm not a huge fan of the shifters now but sentimental value made me use it, hard to believe it stuck with the car when I bought it back 19 years later

my mom took us all for our 21st birthday (flight)
it would have been 1990 cal imports was around and maybe bow-wow but 90% of the stuff I saw was in the magazines

I'm not sure the car will be there for the show, I will be for sure though
engine is coming out this weekend then I have to figure out my plumbing once I bolt the new one in

engine came out and was ready to bolt the new one up.

the pressure plate didn't fit the flywheel ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) turns out it's 215mm flywheel.
since I already have a new Kennedy pressure plate and copperhead disk, i'll swap the flywheel out.
little bit of a bummer.

I was also going to say that man it's a tight fit when trying to test fit it, I thought I would have more room in the 65 compared to the oval?
but maybe because this one is larger (I know different rods ect can change the overall size of it)
