After buying it and letting it sit for about 5 years, I finally had the carb rebuilt, replaced all the vacuum lines, installed a new smog pump, replaced the drag link and got it smogged (freaking Ca. emissions).

Removed Top, Doors and drove it to work also....but its 80 and sunny in beautiful Tulsa, OK today!
