    It's good. I'm shure the lottery would be a little better.

    No, not really. It's being used as a table right now. It's having flywheel issues. It keeps eating up starter gears. I also need to figure out the rear suspension. I'm not sure if I'm keeping the leafsprings or matching up the front coilovers. I'd like to keep the leafs but nobody makes a nice shock to match to the fronts.

    After the non gt gets painted I'm hoping to get back to it. I'd like to get it running and driving.

    Went to lunch in it with a couple of friends, one who had never ridden in it. He was pleasantly surprised at how well it drives and how smooth it was.:burnout:
