Brent from IN came to visit and lend a hand. Driveshaft on, bumpers attached, tail lights installed, turn signals (kinda) installed. Ran a driveway vibe test to 120 MPH in 5th gear, VERY few vibes. Put tires on it and wound it up to about 90 MPH. She was VERY smooth. Hung out with the local ricers and they were pretty impressed. Pix before darkness fell:

Wow!! Classy paint scheme - check. Awesome car - check. Merkur enthusiast posing for picture with thumbs up - check. Looks like you're gonna have a real head turner there when you're done (as if it wouldn't turn heads already).

And I just got it only "drivable" for the season. Lots more to be done before Carlisle.
