Yesterday and today I worked a lot on the Pontiac. Putting back the flashers, head lights, front bumper, splash pan, etc. Also, the vent tube as been installed, and most important, today was THE day! I went out for a ride!! 14 miles of happiness!!

Hier et aujourd'hui j'ai beaucoup travaillé sur la Pontiac. Remis en place les clignotants, phares, pare-chocs avant, valence, etc. Aussi, les tube de ventilation ont été installés, et le plus important, aujourd'hui était LA journée! Je suis sorti pour une première balade!! 20 km de pur Bonheur!!

And now, I think it's the end. Yesterday we took a long ride, 150 miles, with our friends to celebrate officially the rebirth of the Pontiac. If, for the Pontiac it's the rebirth, at the same time it's the end of this post. I won't go any further since the car need only to run and maintenance. This week I'll replace the tires, and put the filter screen in the gas pump. It was a real fun to post this restoration, your were very very a boost in motivation and encouragement. Thank you all for your kind words and again, sorry for my english...

Meet you at Hershey I hope, and I'll post on regular thread in the future.

Fitz.
