Ah shit. Somewhat close, though. Laughing

Roadworthy yet? Gotta jump through some California hoops?

No California hoops, it's pre-1973.

Some assembly still required.  But it will be drivable once the front end alignment is completed and I get the exhaust system hooked up, maybe within a week.

I misplaced the original license tags somehow in the last decade.  Still hunting around for them.

Sweet.

I hope to avoid SMOG BS by picking up a pre-75 Mazda RX3 someday when i have the $$$$. Then, we can rev at each other. Wink

No sound at work, so I couldn't hear her purr.
Nice restoration.  Amazing how much room there is under the hood in the old cars.

Smog check is coming to diesels as well.  Apparently a lot of post '98 kerosene burners will be very incensed when they have to turn their highly modded trucks back to stock.

When I  saw this title, I was reminded of an audio a friend sent around to a bunch of us by email.  He said it was really funny, but not loud enough and to turn it up to hear it.  So, of course; some got duped.  It was a perfectly loud audio that screamed "Hey, everybody - I'm looking at porn!"  The guy that turned up the volume and listened to it at Disney corporate almost got fired.  Me, I listend at home and laughed.

While we're on the topic of smog-exempt cars with awesome engines... my dream, an RX3 with a 20B.  Twisted Evil  Twisted Evil  Twisted Evil

That is some serious revving.

Those little electric RC cars are more realistic-sounding than I thought.

Freakin' awesome!!!  

My last project was a 1968 El Camino with a 4 bolt main 350 that I turned into a Vortec stroker motor at 383ci with a good torquey Crane cam and a Barry Grant 750cfm Speed Demon carb.  Hauled ass!  Then I sold it.  I am curerntly looking for a 1966 Nova to build and keep.

Keep us posted on the progress.

Sweet build, you've done a lot of really nice work.  Awesome when she finally fires up for the first time. . .it's almost like birth.  Thanks for sharing the photos.
