The Big Bang

It was a year ago this month when we first drove Daisy from our house out to the shop.  It was touch and go all the way and she actually died on us before we could raise the shop door and get her completely inside.  Roger ended up pushing her the last few feet.  If you want to refresh your memory, here's the link:   http://vimeo.com/13034930

Miss Daisy has been a busy girl since then.  She's been mechanically overhauled and cosmetically renewed.  While her restoration is still not complete a huge milestone was reached last Sunday and let me tell you, it was a nail biter.

All of the new parts necessary for Daisy's engine to run were in position.  Fresh oil and engine fluid had been added.  After a year of sitting there unused and lifeless, it was time to turn the key.  With Roger's pampering and Dave's fine tuning, that Ford Model A engine came back to life.

Take a look.........
