Well after 2 years of working on my TC, she hit the road about 3 weeks ago as my daily driver. I started with my 84 2 years ago on the 24 of may, with a motor half apart and the tranny in the back seat, took some time to clean and paint everything up, look for parts, and shes on the road.i've never been so comfortable, or had so much fun in a car. ive put almost 800 miles on her in 3 weeks. The only problems i'm having right now, is my fan isnt working properly,( i know what the problem is, just havent really had time to fix it) I have a left rear bad axle seal,(not leaking enough to blow the rear end up,) and my emergency brake cable plastic wheel things broke last night, and i dont think i can get them anywhere.

Other then that, once i get her painted, its gonna be beautiful.

Heres a pic of my car with my grandpas hudson at the local cruise night.
i have a new fender, hood from an 87 and a new grill off an 84 i just put on it.

Thanks to everyone on nato for being such a great help

I could never immagine a good performing, good gas mileage car.

Congrats on your success! Sounds like a lot of work but a lot of fun as well and the results look great.
