Thank you to GRM

Jan 2, 2010 update on Opus's 1973 Ford Pinto

Thank you for having my car in your magazine in the Reader Rides. To update, The car has had the 302 pulled and the 351 has been rebuilt. I pick up the short block on Monday and will assemble it over the next few weeks. While the engine is out, the engine bay will be cleaned and repainted, the car will be rewired and I will be installing a new fuel system from the tank back so that it can be legal for the street and strip. Once the engine is back in and running right, I can focus on replacing the front fenders and doors as well as a little rust repair as needed. My first show will be in April and will have the rewire, engine and fuel system complete. I am also toying with the idea to replace the gauges so that I can use the speedometer as it was intended and not just to sit there. Please check out my site for update pictures.

Thank you again to GRM
