Well, for the fist time in 20+ years, my '66 Slick drove under it's own power. Cleaned out the gas tank, replumbed new fuel line to the new fuel pump to the rebuilt carb, cleaned & set the points, replaced the water pump & belt, and adjusted the clutch up some. She started right up & I backed her out of the garage and went around the block. I knew that it ran when I bouight it, but had no idea on the trans...I was very happy to find that it went into all 3 gears. The brakes are definately next on the list, lol...
Always a great feeling to get a ride in the old beasts...
