First start after 6 years

After after 6 years of working on the car and replacing a defunct fuel pump last night I had my lovely assistant film the first engine start.



So far no fuel or oil leaks... Monitoring carefully!

Congrats! Always a good feeling hearing it start up after a long time sitting. I always get a happy feeling after starting my car after it sits for a week or so, hah. Hopefully you'll be enjoying it more now that things may have settled down. Don't forget to check out our new gear up for spring page for some goodies for her now that she is up and running. Enjoy!

Very exciting. I haven't heard mine run in quite some time but this is the year I will be posting my start up video.

Where's the huge cloud of blue smoke? You sure it's got any oil?
Hoping mine will be as uneventful after 3 years sitting
