First Ride in Doug’s Model A

image

I took off about a half hour early from work to run down to the shop and do a test ride with Doug today. What a blast. Looks like he’s going to make the goal of running it in this weekend’s 2nd Annual Hot Rod Hundred Reliability Run.

Heading out to put some gas in the tank. It seems to be passing a little oil on the driver’s side, causing it to smoke a little bit.

I followed him over to the gas station, with an empty gas can in my van, just in case he ran out of fuel on the way.

Not much for words on this post, other than to say that I am excited that Doug’s finally got a hot rod that he can run around in and have some fun with this summer. I’m really looking forward to having him and my sister running with us on the 2nd Annual SWMO Hot Rod Hundred, too!
