Ahhhhhh......this is where my choice of place to live has paid off. I'm in the woods and the garage is 200 feet from the house, so I'm not going to wake up anyone.
Neighbors? Let me go through the list......One has an old MGB with an aluminum Buick V8 in it. Another has a 66 Malibu that he swapped the auto for a rock crusher and put in a 396. Next to him is a family business where the dad (my dad's age) has a little collection....67 427 4 speed vette, 66 Mustang convertible from a Philco sales rep (owned by ford), 68 Road Runner, a total restoration from the rust up called a Dual Phaeton (48 total made...his is sn45). He restored, rebuilt and sold the only 58 Desoto with working fuel injection http://www.allpar.com/cars/desoto/electrojector.html
You get the picture. I make noise, they look out the window because they want to see what the car is....in a good way.
