I too spent a recent weekend looking for a fuel leak. Didn't find one. Car still smells a bit like gas, but the smell seems to be going away.

Had a great time crawling around under the thing, taking off panels, looking at the rear fuel pump.

At one point I found myself inspecting a seal around the fuel line where it enters the body. To get the seal back on, I ended up hugging the drive shaft with the crank case inches from my face, working blind to get the rubber seal back on.

I've never hugged the driveshaft of a car before, and I didn't really intend to, but the sentiment is there.

It's a great old beast.
