Awesome car, Pete!

I realize that not everyone is a fan of Sunlit Gold, but I love it. 👍🏻
Nothing beats a classic!

Any real cool video of it running, both historic and present day?
Owned since 1971, now driven over 242,000 miles, makes me smile every time I drive it and it makes me feel 21 again.😎

Some where some one is driving their collector car for the last time but they don't know it . Drive your car every time like it could be the last memory of it .

Thank you all .

Many very talented and smart people were involved in the project.

The Long family, Chris Long was instrumental.  His dad invented and refined the system.

My friend, Bruce , a long time Ford master mechanic gave us the final push over the finish line.

The owner is incredibly patient.

Now, if I could find one to make my own

Beautiful!
These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS
