They'll tell you 20 gallons if you filled it to the top of the pump mount, but if you filled it to the top of the tank you can probably get closer to 25 gallons topped it off.

Went to Mel's Diner for breakfast, and this beauty parked in front of me.

Can't praise it enough. Leaving it on for this heat wave, with the rear window rolled down. Really cuts down the direct heat from the sun and allows the air to flow through.

Best day ever. 18 years ago November I took delivery of my roadster thinking my two young teenage boys and I would build it. After a few weekends in the garage they grew impatient when the car wasn't going together as quickly as they thought it would, so I shelved the car so I could participate with them in scouts, karate, youth group, mountain biking, etc, and I have absolutely no regrets. Life has taken many twists, all good, but hasn't left a whole lot of time for the car.
Now the best day ever part. My oldest son who is married and has 2 little girls wants to come over one weekend morning a week to help me finish the car. He needs a break from all the estrogen and needs some man time. Sunday was the 1st day and I am now reliving my original dream of 18 years ago. Lots of time with my oldest son, and the roadster is progressing. Best day(s) ever.

What a great Father's Day gift, Steven.

Trial fit for new dash & installed the trunk lid struts.

Struts hold lid OK @ 28lbs each but think 35lbs would be better.

Threw it on the lift, used the trolly jack to lift the rear, and removed the rear passenger tire. I was doing a pre-drive walk around and noticed the right rear was low. Looked and sure enough, there was a screw in the tread. Dropped the wheel off to get the tire patched just now.

Finally got my superbrightled LEDs installed, and the new flashers. Had to rewire the hazards wiring in the fuse box, now the flasher installs from the back. It was too large to fit in the stock circular hole. Lights look nice!

Tried out the car on the trailer behind my wife’s Ford Flex.
EcoBoost AWD so it’s got the power and 5000lb towing capacity, I’ve just never tried towing anything with her car. Now I know I can.

Pulled both cars out for a warm up so I can do their yearly oil change.
