Look at what we dragged home yesterday. It had been sitting in a barn for ten or twenty years. The right rear wheel was locked up during the entire tow. It finally went flat on us after dragging it for a couple mile's. The engine turns over fine. We pulled the spark plugs and sprayed some PB Blaster into the cylinder's first. Almost got it started, but the Weber on it need's a rebuild kit badly. We'll probably have to remove the gas tank and clean it out. Fuel line's, fuel filter and fuel pump no doubt need attention also. A couple retired guy's just having fun.

I just received a cybermail from Todd and he said he got it running today. He just put four new spark plugs in it and gapped the point's at .018 and Whammo! it started right up. Wish I could have been there to hear it run but I'm back down here in south Seattle at my apt. I'm going to help him prep it and spray it. No rattle can job either. He has a compressor. :banana:

looks like the original yellow was sprayed over by grey primer. You could try some graffiti remover or easy off oven cleaner to rub off that primer. Sweet coupe!
