1st Day I have the Medallion
« on: April 22, 2011, 12:30:14 »

This yr at least. Went and pulled it out. Something built a nest out of maple keys on the intake, :rant:
Had juice in the battery, turned it over a bit to build up some oil pressure, popped a little gas down the carb to help out the fuel pump and it fired right over.
Now I have it home, gotta get some gas ASAP.

Geez...the rear lug nuts seem to have a lot of rust on them for some reason. :huh:

OK, I knew the tank was low and gas prices are high, but I just put $20 in and got between E and a 1/8th. :doh: The gas light still flickers.

LOL...I figured all these years of just keeping my coupe in the garage and working on the project saved me a pile of cash now...  :roll:

Because it's something I always do, took the shop vac and cleaned the debris/leaves out from the rubber flaps on the firewall and under the hood.
That stuff usually just sits there for yrs collecting moisture and rusts the car on other peoples cars. :rant:
That was the big problem when I bought it. Pine needles inside the frame collecting moisture and rotted the frame. :x
