Talking She lives!

Fired my 68 230 up for the first time since I bought it, which was about a year ago.
Runs pretty good!

Very good news! Now we're getting even closer to seeing your 230 on the road. Were you gravity-feeding the fuel system from a gas can?

Took her on the maiden voyage on easter! We drove over to the in-laws for dinner, about 20 miles round trip.

Ran great! I still need to do some tweaking with the carbs, and a long list of other things I discovered.



I'll post about it on my resto thread.
