it was just on my way home from work, but it ran perfect today, took the long way home - stopped for gas and at the bank.
i don't know if it was the humidity or the temperature or a combination of both, but today i remembered why i drive and build this thing.
i forgot about how i can't go anywhere with that car, although its my daily driver; i forgot that i'm going homeless building it (if anybody has a room for rent in this area please let me know!); i forgot the fact that it needs so much more work, i forgot that i have to go to my bullshit job every day, i forgot about bills, rent, debt, i forgot about everything, everything but the car.
hopefully in the near future every day will be like this, when i'm financially secure, when the Z is fuel injected, when it has an actual alignment, when i figure out how to keep the police away (maybe a historic car plate?), when i'm building cars as a career...
but for now, today the Z ran beautifully.
