I was trippin, man .....You’re driving south on Highway 9. It’s past sundown and the weather is CAVU (clear and visibility unlimited). Fast, sweeping turns snake ahead of you. The exhaust rumbles. Friendly night breezes travel with you. In your mirrors, faint headlights draw near and intensify. Suddenly, you realize you’re somewhere else - in a far-off Mille Miglia, and that’s Tazio Nuvolari on your tail! Fortunately for you, he’s not motoring at ten-tenths. It’s a friendly chase. As he catches up, the welcoming lights of the Big Rock Inn come into sight. You pull in for a drink. Engines crackle as they cool in the night air. Wisps of burnt castor oil and steam arise from Nuvolari’s Bugatti. You have drinks and tell tales of races won and lost. After paying the cashier, you turn, and Tazio, The Flying Mantuan, is gone. You rush outside, but all you see are his fading tail lights. All you hear is the rasp of his exhaust, as he disappears into the night.

Well this weekend was a landmark for me and my 100 BN1 restoration. It started by getting the car off the trolley I have used for the restoration for the past 7-9 years. It ended with me getting the engine installed, all very satisfying.

Congratulations! Must be a great feeling. I have great admiration for those that do this themselves.

The best part of a restoration is from here on as you start to see results for your labours in a more tangible way i.e. fitting panels, doing wiring and all that entails, having it done or doing the trim........et-al.

Then you get to that final point when you have your hard work parked in the sun, it's gleaming and you stand back, admire the years of work and announce those wonderful words.............."IT'S FINISHED"!

Cheers

Since getting the BN1 project down to our house in VA in August, I've been trying to do something on it each night. Today, I pulled out the parking brake cable and the driveshaft. I also disassembled the fuel gauge and cleaned it, along with the speedometer.

It's a lovely weekend with clear skies and temperatures in the mid-30's so I went for a couple of hours' ride this morning along some of Southern Maryland's remote roads. I took this pic at a small stream in Amish country and if you look closely you'll probably see some horse apples in front of the car.
