weee and booyah i drove The Check this morning!! granted it was only in my driveway but i dont give a crap LOL it runs!! when it was dropped off yesterday, after taking a good look at the engine.. i fully expected to be clearing out rodents nests and finding all the wires gnawed out and that the guy mal bought it from having fibbed about its condition.. but no!! a charge of the battery and some gas in the tank and it turned right over! not exactly purring like a kitten.. needs new filters and other junk so its kinda skippy.. but not too damned bad for a nearly 40 year old clunker now to make this a discussion so peoples dont b|tch.. you ever restored a classic? how long did it take you from start to finish? got before and after pics to share? this is my virgin run of it.. and im positively giddy!

Pardon my ignorance...but may I ask, what the heck is a check(er)???? I am somewhat of a classics lover...but never heard of this one. I wish I could say I've owned one and really dream of one day restoring an old GTO or Mustang. My fiance is a pontiac man so I don't see that happining anytime soon.
