Finally have the car and driving it every day.

Finally got the rear main seal done and replaced the main bearings in the engine. It is a pleasure to drive and no more leaks! With the 80 degree temperatures we've had recently in South Carolina, even with a black vinyl top it is cool enough to drive without AC. Thinking of taking it on the Hot Rod Power Tour next year, which ends in Charlotte, NC.

Yes, and so far Richie's choice for the rear main "rope" seal has worked very well. Regards. Remember -- I want video of the engine running once everything is done with your car.
