My crazy car project –Chapter II(not software/work related)

Now that I had a strategy in place how did it go?

(For the initial strategy please see:

https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/charles_sterling/2012/09/20/my-crazy-car-project-the-beginningnot-softwarework-related/ )

So how did the initial build out go?

Step 1 build an engine…with Chevy small blocks this is easy and cheap(ish)



Step 2 Get a hoist to put it into the car…My Doubting wife doesn’t think it will fit


Step 4 Measure it<g>


Step 3: Put the motor into the car


Step 5 Figure out why it is not fitting


Step 6. Use bigger hammer


Step 7 Admire work…note motor is literally behind the front axles making this technically a mid engine car!
