Rotten to the core

Ugh, went to start up my Javelin and found the passenger footwell soaked with coolant. Wish it was water, no luck. I got a blown heater core leaking in the car. Great. Luckily, I found a new replacement for only ...

Another view

Just another angle to show it's a lot cleaner. I had to be careful when washing it under hood because of the original decals and stickers are starting to peel off.

All cleaned up and no where to go...

On Saturday, a pop of the hood revealed an engine bay in need of some attention, the grime and grit was thick and nasty. A quick trip to the local car wash for the pressure washer loaded simple green was ...

Where did the summer go?

I've driven the Javelin almost every weekend this summer. Having a radio for the first time is taking some getting used to hearing music after looking at the whole in the dash all of these years.

from a zombie to a daily driver.

The biggest problem for me was all of the little things to chase down and fix to make this car a daily driver. The carb, brake cylinder and radiator leaked. I wasn't about to waste money on a 2bbl carb ...

Go with the flow...

Shot of the true dual exhaust with flow mufflers. Sounds great and really woke it up considering there was only a dinky factory original single exhaust system on it. http://youtu.be/ydqIi2aAA3o This was done last summer and works perfectly. I haggled ...

My ride...

It's been a slow process over the 3 years of being able to enjoy the car. But this year I've been able to drive it every weekend, weather permitting.

Just bought the HEI and plug wire combo for the Javelin. I'll try to do a detailed swap with picutres to show it for those who may do it.

I'm jealous! You've actually gotten to drive your Javelin!

Today is the last Hot Dogs and Hot Rods for the season. :( Only about a month left before I take it off the road for the front end work and to swap in the 360. With any luck, start the body work and replace the windshield seals since they leak like a shiv.

Have you had the Javelin back out yet this year?

Nope, not as of yet. Going to get the heater core, engine swap to 360 and the front end done at one time. The car tends to wander like a drunk at happy hour.
