New posts coming soon...

I haven't forgotten about this blog, but life has been quite unsettled lately, so while work on the project continues, blogging has taken a back seat for a bit.

Two major parts of the project are underway simultaneously: Paint & Body work, and the engine rebuild.

Here's a few pics to hold over my legions of devoted fans...

The 289 V8, ready for teardown.
Nasty water pump surprises...
Spun bearings on the crankshaft...
A freshly cleaned and bored block...
A ticket to ride...
At the body shop (finally!)...
Stripped to bare metal...
 Stay tuned!
