Looks great!  Wish my parents showed me how to work on cars when I was younger!  Your parents are cool!

Since she's back in school and band all week...I'll answer for her...

We have two 318 engines in the garage.  We're putting the original one back in there. That will be plenty for her.  Maybe in the future when she's a bit more skilled at driving, she can get an upgrade like a 360.  The other 318 she is going to rebuild for her Senior Project next year.

Why thank you SB72!

Way to go Pixie!  Looks like you guys have made lots of progress.  It would be great if the car can be finished in time for Carlisle.  Looks like Laura will have to get another new truck to tow the Pixie Duster to PA.

Well...they look good from 20 feet.  The rear ones are fine, but the front ones where we did the vinyl repair is not that fantastic.  I keep having to remind myself...this is not the challenger....we are NOT spending a fortune on this duster....she can always upgrade in the future...it's fine for a great looking driver!

Like my mom said, i've been really busy during the week. But hopefully this weekend we'll have some more progress! Thanks for all the comments!

(and in about 3 weeks, when band season ends, all my free time will be for my pixie!!)
