transforming the Newport

Hi, folks -

So I'll be offline most of today. All those parts I ordered to hot-rod my new classic? Well, they've arrived (mostly), so today I begin removing parts from the engine compartment, cleaning things up, and so forth. Nate is coming over today to watch the process, and Jeremy will be working companionably on his car while we tear into mine. If you think the idea of lifting heavy, greasy stuff while learning how engines go together (rather, how they come apart) sounds fun, you're welcome to join us. I'll be in the garage behind my house.

Next week, the transformation begins as I start installing the new bits!
