Driving from Washington DC to DMC Midwest 323 miles left to go!

This trip is approximately 13 times longer than any previous trip I made in this car.

I had no idea you needed a new door. What else are you getting done? Is it cold?

Did not drive past Elkhart since I went through Indianapolis.

Had snow flurries in Chicago, but I made it!

If you are on good behavior, Dave and Julie might give you some Diet Cheerwine.

Snow flurries there ALREADY? That means its time to get a winter car again...

@Matt - Are you staying over in the greater Chicago area?

Boglin

Yup. Living it up in a Four Points hotel 'till my flight tomorrow morning. Ha!

They must have sold the wide stripe Delorean that was on the showroom floor in June. Dave looked just as thrilled about me taking pictures :)

That is Dave's original car.

Here's where they charged up my AC after having replaced the back glass and converted my early-style textured pontoons to later (smooth) style. We did this because I wasn't happy with how they looked after having been repainted about 4 times, and because I felt the textured pontoons were difficult to clean.

EDIT: I do hate my air filter. One day I will do something different with that when I figure out how I can hide it, yet not have to remove the rear fascia to service it.

Very interesting to see a picture of your engine bay. I think I have extracted the 1000 words out of it, lol.
For the intake, if you do away with the charcol canister and purchase some generic inter cooler piping off ebay you can route it into the left pontoon. You could utilize your current air filter as well. This is what Im doing with my car, I will post up pictures when I get it all together.

Teach me why I can do away with the charcoal canister. What do I do with the fuel vapors then from the tank?

I believe that Bill just vents to atmosphere if I'm not mistaken. Ask him about it...

Yep, to atmosphere. I started a thread on here a while back discussing removal of the canister.

So what happens if a spark gets too close to the vent hardline? Will it ignite?

Oh please -- the vapor line up to the rollover valve then back down frame acts just like an upside down P trap. Without engine vacuum sucking on it the only thing passing through that line is minor fluctuations in air pressure.

Don't go all David Teitelbaum on me now....

Tank vent on a vintage Corvette (this one happens to vent behind the fuel filler door):

Same principle executed closer to the tank.

Brag it up why don't you :p

Who had the burger? While the BBQ looks good, I'd probably opt for the burger as well - I'm pretty simple like that :)
