A few shots from the trip up to Polson for the car show. It was a rainy day, but at least I didn't have to worry about over heating. She ran great. Props to Eric at V'DUB's for tuning her up.

The Square didn't move last summer since it was runnning horribly. It wouldn't idle and had no power, but both myself and Eric at V'DUB's were a bit stumped. The last guess was bad gas. Last fall I decided it must be an ethanol issue so I drained the tank and all the lines and filled the lines to the carbs with carb cleaner and ran it. I repeated this several times and let them soak for the winter. I reconnected everthing last weekend and fired it up, and away she went. Runs strong again and filled it up with no ethanol premium. I forgot how many looks that car gets, and how much pep it has compared to the bus. Hope to spend the spring checking a few more things off the list for it.

Ryan, you ever change the fuel lines? I thought you did, but if not, the old ones are probably swollen from the inside from the Ethanol.

I had changed them recently, and I replaced my fuel filters when I drained everything last year. The lines checked out ok. I did replace the fuel lines to and from the fuel pump to the propper 1/4" to eliminate any dripping. The lines through the pan are all hard line, so no issues there.

CIP has screaming deal on their new matt black wheel line. I really like these, but am torn with putting new wheels on an old car. The theme has always been revising or repurposing old parts ahead of just installing new ones on an old car. Thoughts?
