    A huge push on the car coming up to get it ready for the Nostalgias on April 1st. Plan is the pick the motor up from Peter next Sunday 26th Feb. I have a wedding/holiday in Adelaide end of march to go to (for a week). So that leaves me less than four weeks to go the motor installed, plumbed up and test fired. No pressure!

    Picked up the motor and all other parts required to make it go last Sunday off Peter. A big push now to do all those little jobs and get the car ready for the Nostalgias on April 1st.

    Sorry for the lack of updates but it's been a busy time. Got the car assembled and took it up to Meremere for a test. Had a few start up issues and by the time we had it sorted the track was shut. Did a fire up and got the car to move under its own power back and forwards. Car is all prepped and ready (as it can be) for the Nostalgias this Saturday. I'm in Adelaide at the moment for a wedding but back on Thursday night, then off to Auckland on Friday.

    Well the 2017 Nostalgia drags have been and gone. What a great weekend. Started with a photo shot for NZHRM on friday afternoon (feature in the mag will be soon), then all the altereds lined up for some group shots.
    Saturday dawned very misty but soon cleared up. We did three runs in the car running off the back of the pack. The car went great with no issues at all. Shane Lodge drove the car, and took it easy. Last run was a 10.5 sec @ 119mph. The car has a lot of potential for sure. Lots of positive feedback on the car and overall I couldn't be happier with how it went. I've got a few little changes to do, but nothing major. Just over 5 years from when our journey started it finally went down the drag strip again. Awesome.

    What a magnificent restoration and the sight of Hombre at the Nostalgias under throttle with a dose of nitro under it's hat was certainly awesome. Thanks Grant for sharing your 5-year journey with us here and top marks for a job very well done!!!
