As of today I have been working my but off on this Futura.
I have radiator, tranny cooler, B&M Shifter, battery in the trunk, torque the suspension, parking brake cables, gauges, and console is what I have left.
The car goes next week on the 5th for exhaust and then I will be firing it up !!
The hood I have left to cut a hole in and paint as well....but I should make it by the Big Bash !!!

Ok, tomorrow after work I will be dropping the Futura off for the exhaust work and then picking it up after work on Wed. I cant wait.
Today I put oil in the engine and set the timing and mounted the distributor. Touched up on the the parking brakes. Last week I got my B&M Hammer shifter installed and just trying to work on the center console. Gettin it mounted and the gauges in it. Triming out the the new shifter looks easy and soon after that is done !!! I will fire up the engine !!!!

Yes and yes. I think we should have some pics for the bash and share the good times. Not only is there the show in Fairmont, there is one I believe on Sunday of the same weekend right here in Faribault.....we can raid that show too !!

it'll be an annual thing, like sturgis, but instead of bikers, we're in the cars that run the bikers over...

and the fairmont was more popular that that alone, just think of the numbers when the zephyr is added into the equation...

but to make that fair, they would have to add in the firebuzzard/trans-am...
