    Exactly! It's hard to tell from the picture but the car was over pretty far on the tire to flatten it out the way it did! There was a point in the one video where you can see it with three wheels off the ground for a second. Lucky that's all I have to say!

    Very glad it didnt roll over, speaks to how good a driver was piloting it.

    So more progress being made this weekend. The rest of the tube front end is nearly finished. The fenders are front clip are hung. I need to add two more fender supports and a support for the headlight panel and the body will be done. The suspension is next as I will be installing all new chromoly UPR suspension thanks to the help of @Sharad. I expect the engine back next week so I can get the new motor plate tabs in and the moor set back in place. Following are some pictures of what I did last night. I'll post the pics of the new suspension once I finish it this weekend.

    I stopped by the machine shop today and the motor should be buttoned up next week. Waiting on a different set of head gaskets and pushrods.
