GODZILLA LIVES!!!!!

It wouldn't fit my homebrew run-in dolly due to the external oil pickup and I decided
I'd rather get it running today than take a bunch of time fabricating anything different
so I bolted a spare trans on, rigged up some trashy spare ignition and fuel stuff,
ran some wires, a battery and a gas can, and fired it up on the cherry picker.

Oh yes, I did.

I was prepared to hook up a cooling system but didn't have enough space, so
I had to limit my few runs to about 30 seconds at a time, with 15 to 30 minute cool downs
in between. Even with that, I feel I have an idea how it's going to go.

It sounds great through open Super Comps, produced the same 75psi oil pressure
that it did on the engine stand, and.....Now I can get it ready to install....paint it, get a few parts powder coated and so on. It's also going to drive some resto work to the car itself.

Fired up 2 years ago today. Happy birthday grin

The Hemi sits under wraps waiting patiently for metal replacement/bodywork on the lucky recipient.
