engine noise

More pictures of the new project are on my flickr stream and in
this post over on Clay's blog. It is one loud little beastie.
I suspect my picture stream will be full of red, rust, and engines
for quite some time. She was someone's racing project about
ten years ago, and an errand truck for a couple of years after
that. The truck sat for three or four years doing pretty much
nothing up until now, so there's plenty of assorted routine
maintenance before really starting on restoring it.

While I was spending Sunday crawling around under the truck
cursing various bolts and things for having not been turned
in several years, my fake tivo was recording lots of Top Gear.
So tonight, in a dance class and proof-writing theory homework
daze, I got to watch shiny fast things. (Bugatti Veyron on
the VW top-secret test track, for one thing.)

music: lovely noise!
