I guess that will help those out there looking for an increase in value on thier Comets ( <---not me 8) )
Comets are valuable to all us lone wolves 8)
I still remember back in the 70's there were a pair of brothers had the baddest car on the street and it wasn't a pony car :D
Let's pray we can make it next go around, with our cars! I'm feeling better just thinking about it.

I have a good feeling about next year my trailer just needs tires they are just flat out dry rotted maybe a repack on the wheel bearings might be in order so that will be on my agenda or just getting the Comet ready and driving it (my preference) maybe have the truck.follow along as a support vehicle depending on my level of confidence by then and you right now I am fairly confident in my ability to build a dependable car.
But testing will ensue over the next year which will mean driving the Comet. Often and far I will document it all curious to see how ihave donei will document it all and be fully open about where I missed the mark (like the starter and battery so far I think my tendency to be so OCD might help I have to h ave everything look neat and be fully functional as well even if I have to glue a nickel over my sensor on the rear diff housing where no one will ever see it :D
