    Car made it to Wilmington , N.C. to Wilmington Motor Works safely by Flat Bed.
    They have quite the list of things to do and do not want my help so I left the car in Tim's hands and rented a car to come back to Beaufort.They will have the car until it is back together and run through the first heat cycle to torque the heads again then back together.....

    WEll, the car got taken apart and DAMN if they did not find that one of the bolts was missing that holds the timing chain guide in place and the other bolt was loose.Then they opened up the bottom oil pan and they found the bolt they also found a 10mm nut,a piece of media blasting material and part of the chain guide.Here are some pictures.It was just a matter of time before total detonation.Glad I had a head gasket failure.OH the motor is back together , forgot to mention that....

    The car is running,saw it with my own two eyes and ears.( first turn of the ignition key and it started right up)Another couple of weeks and it will be up and mobile,but I am heading to the Bahamas on the 25th to pick up a sailboat and bringing it back to Beaufort so it will not be until the month of May that I will be able to show some videos.Then it is off to Florida with car.

    That sounds awesome... and kind of scary.
