with all the fun you're having with this, maybe I should put the Fiat next in line.... it would certainly make my wife happy since it's being built for her.

Wow, how many vehicle projects do you have going on? The Fiat sounds interesting.

50 Buick Sedanet with a 430 Buick, aluminum heads, twin turbos and eventually an Art Morrison chassis. I wanted experience to build a true, custom fat fender hot rod.... this is the car that's going to be the penultimate one so it has sat for awhile and will sit a bit longer.

64 Buick Skylark wagon with a GNX motor

The Fiat and of course the Corvette

finished projects (but ones I'm still working on) are a 94 diesel suburban I use for camping and second car duties, an FJ40 along with SAR'ing my new Daily driver Colorado, oh yeah, and my wife's Jeep Rubicon that she uses for hauling her K9s for SAR.

So a couple.... it also kind of informs why I've been working on the Fiat on and off for 8 years.

takes money and time. Hopefully, the Corvette will bring enough money when it's time to start the Sedanet

Yes but things like this week is a good example. I have a 94 Suburban that is for K9 SAR, I've outsourced a lot of the boring work; but I still need to spend several work-periods on finishing it.... and the FJ40 needs a bit of love so it'll last long enough for me to put the LS motor in it (or diesel).

What's 'funny' is it's not that terribly far from being an operational vehicle.
