    Been neglecting my updates. I got the motor and transfer case rebuilt. Fuel injection, aluminum heads and intake manifold, electronic ignition. Overdrive automatic transmission conversion also done. I will post more when I get time. Here's a little video teaser for now

    Looking great! I like the idea of fuel injection and overdrive.

    The Red Devil got to her first car show today. An hour and a half round trip. It ran great. Was a big hit
