    SVO's: '85 1C

    Re: 84 SVO sold, have 7 weeks to make 85 run...

    Just an update for anyone who is interested in the progress of my 85 project...

    Spent the last few weeks getting the car unpacked from its cocoon in my garage and have been getting it ready. (like putting seats in it, installing wheels and tires that weren't flat, connecting the steering rack, replacing odds and ends, etc.) but this weekend we got a ton of stuff done.

    On Saturday morning, Huber and Andy showed up with the truck and trailer and we took the car to Jon's garage. Got the new motor and transmission set in the car, old gas tank out, etc. by Saturday afternoon. I called it a day at that point as I was summoned for an emergency tire repair and left the car up in the air, ready to get started again Sunday morning.

    When I showed up back at Jon's place on Sunday morning with a fresh load of parts to install (radiator, etc), the car was sitting back on all fours and was even clean and shiny to boot. Long after I left on Saturday, Jon and Andy went ahead and got the new gas tank installed, engine hooked up, crossmember in, driveshaft in, and cleaned and buffed the car! As you can see, these guys clearly rule.

    In any case, after they gave me a huge head start, I fixed a couple of wiring glitches, added oil, and buttoned up the exhaust, and we got the thing to run last night. Considering the thing had not run since 1992, I am pretty fired up.

    So, I am headed back to Jon's now to work on it some more.

    I will post some pics this week.

    How do we get there?

    Hey Paul,
    How about those directions to SVPU Central. BTW, I'll be trailering my car from MS and plan to stop by on my way to Anniston. Will there be parking room? See you there.

    directions?

    Hey Paul, could you send me some directions to your place from the Hotel, or maybe leave directions at the hotel desk so everyone who needs them can have them?

    We're working up the map right now..

    check the thread that says map.

    I will print several of these out, and leave at the front desk of the hotel.
