So a lot has happened in the last week. Got The Boss on the road, temporarily, from the MD MVA. Started putting a few miles on her. Got her up on the Interstate for the first time, up to 60 mph and all felt really good.

Took a lady friend of mine with me to a local Cruise In and had a good time. She helped install the last piece to really finish this car… my BOSS 427 badges that I had custom made by Billet Badges. I bought these before I ever ordered the kit. So it was a nice touch to put em on before heading out to show the car.

Got some nice attention, but people dont understand that its a new car, built from the ground up, not some kit placed on top of another car. Thats OK… its mine and I know I built it.

Made an appointment and got the car over to Auto Italia in Rockville. They have some knowledge of these cars… thats why I went so far to see them vs using a local place that had no idea. They took it for a test drive and did an underneath inspection… all looks good. It was nice to see my car up on a lift where I could get underneath it.

On the rack at Auto Italia, Rockville, MD

She passed inspection with no issues. So now its back to the MVA to get off the 30 day tags. Still have a bit more work to do, so continue to stay tuned!

Spent the morning at the Maryland MVA. Got a VIN number assigned and plate attached, paid my taxes (just like for a new car), got a title coming in the mail and finally, my 30 day tags. 30 days is for the MD State Safety Inspection.

After I get that done, I’ll have the regular 2 year tags and be good to go.
