We probably put 200 miles on this car while we shook it down and tuned. The owner flew in and was planning to take it on a week-long trip.
Well that didn't go as planned. Around 400 miles away the owner contacted me saying that it started running poorly and had an odd noise coming from the top end. This was a used unopened/unknown engine so we were not sure what want going on.
He had a week planned so rather than cutting his vacation short we told him to rent a car and continue on his trip. We loaded up the trailer and headed south to grab the car.....and some waffles.
Engine bay right before he took off
Poor car, on the trailer to head back to the shop
At least we got some waffle house
