    My V8 car has been sleeping for a year now and it finally got a ticker, a 225! No ticks in this motor, it purrs. If I had more gas it would still be running....and check out the exhaust...there is none! Just a 2 foot headpipe cut a the crossmember but you would never guess as it was pretty quiet.

    Sounds better 'n mine (which has a slack timing chain and a collapsed baffle in the muffler).

    Woulda sounded even better if you'd left Fleetwood Mac playing.

    Does the starter key live on the bocsanatot keyrack? ;-) (non-Hungarians: don't even try; you'll hurt yourself)

    Excellent! I love rigging to hear them run. I even drove a 383 challenger once with a wire thru the firewall for the throttle, and the ignition jumper on my lap to cut it off...lol.
    But, you might want to use a different method of firing. I notice you don't have a lot of hair, but car guys without eyebrows look funny for weeks. Be careful.
