i'm still around, just not often. i never did finish my build due to leaving the country - for almost 4 years. i was building it in between trips back, but those trips stopped when I went to Kuwait, Iraq, and Belgium for the last 3-4 years.
So it needs to be torn down and have the valve springs replaced, at a minimum, but it's still there. I gave the car to a shop to finish it while I was gone, and the shop went out of business and kept my car! I finally got it back, nothing done, parts missing. Sent it to another shop to finish, who didnt touch it for 3 months. Sent it to another shop who charged me $4000, so I thought it was done. I show up, and it's nowhere NEAR done, and I ended up undoing most of it.
So between the financial headache and not having time to do it myself, I daily drove my '72 Nova for a while. Later bought a C5 Corvette and put some work into that, and it's my new daily driver.
I type this from Canada, so I still travel, but whenever I have time to, I want to finish mine! I've actually been to NJ and MD several times, so I'll have to get in touch with you guys that already finished!
