Well we finally worked out all the mechanical and electrical gremlins from our first engine start a few weeks ago, and here we are (my brother and I) on our first test drive. Sorry it's not too exciting, but I guess it wouldn't be unless you were sitting in the car. I'm sitting in the passenger seat, and you can see in my face that I'm thinking of the thousands of pieces and connections that could possibly go terribly wrong. I didn't tell my brother, but I knew that the car would either drive great....or explode. Well, we didn't explode! We took it nice and slow for this first drive so we could listen for any unusual sounds and/or feelings. Subsequent drives (and there were many) were more lively! Thanks again for all the help we've received from both this forum and the local builders we've become friends with along the way.
