  2. Looks like its about perfect. Any exotic motor plans?
     
  3. Super charged 351
     
  4. looks great!

    This must have been started durring the Elanor hype.
     
  5. When does she come down to pick it up?
     
  6. When it's done!!
     
  7. Lol! I didn't know if you guys set a date up or something.
     
  8. We have tried 3 different oil pans and they won't clear the rack. This is the last attempt it will fit this time.

    We have decided to modify the motor mount on the block. Brian cut off the old plates and made new ones

    The engine had to be raised about a 1/2" and forward about 1/4".

  9. Yelp I'm glad I didn't weld my mounts in yet I'll defiantly just going wait till it's time to put the engine in. Wow! How frustrating is that.
     
  10. Reliable Carriers was scheduled to up pick up and take her home to Ohio on 1/2/14 so we worked through the holidays. We were here on New Years day from 7:30 - 7:00 and she was ready for pickup but they never showed up or called.

    It is hard to get a good picture she looks a lot better in person
     
  11. I never really thought much of the Eleanors ,but beautiful is beautiful :nice:
     
  12. I wanted to come over and see it while I was on my vacation, but it fell short and got called back. Only ended up with 2 days instead of 2 weeks of vaca time. Still no word word when they're picking it up?
     
  13. No as of the 2nd we found out they didn't have a driver scheduled yet. Lauren is going to call Monday
     
  14. Eleanor was picked up last night and will be home in Ohio sometime today.
