Evidentially the owner called the restoration shop up and said he wanted to go flying sooner than expected.

Any they were having issues with the ignition, so you can hear her firing up here but she doesn't sound real healthy;

Movie clip of trying to start her (https://s207.photobucket.com/albums/bb73/tdskip_photos/Bugeye/?action=view&current=p51tryingtostart.flv)


They made progress and did get her started;

She fires up (https://s207.photobucket.com/albums/bb73/tdskip_photos/Bugeye/?action=view&current=p51starting.flv)

They did get her started and you feel her catch before you hear her, if that makes any sense. There is a guttural who-mp when she first fires up that hits you as a sound wave then you her the exhaust.

When I left they were still working on her.

This is totally on topic. Sounds just like trying to start my TR3.

This out at the Chino CA Airport (https://maps.google.com/maps?sourceid=navclient&rls=GGLJ,GGLJ:2006-43,GGLJ:en&um=1&ie=UTF-8&q=chino+airport&fb=1&gl=us&hq=chino+airport&hnea r=Lake+Forest,+CA&ei=obkjS4qAA4qQNvG-6OcJ&sa=X&oi=local_group&ct=image&resnum=4&ved=0CC QQtgMwAw) , where Planes of Fame (CA) is located. There are two major flight museums there, the other is called Yanks.
