1st drive today!
#1
Hello everyone, today was a big day. I was able to put a few miles on my 73 fastback since getting the drivetrain finished up. The engine/transmission/power steering etc. worked great. This car is driving well and I'm looking forward to getting all of the little stuff finished up, it's been a long road getting here but it is has been definately worth it, just thought I would share.
