Finally the moment has arrived. I got the tires to hold air and took this car for it's maiden voyage. It runs and drives surprisingly well, although there is a loud clunking coming from the rear somewhere. The air conditioning compressor even engages, although it needs a charge, and the gauges aren't working. This car was rated 27mpg city/40mpg highway on the old, unrealistic drive cycle, but even by today's standards it should be solidly in the 30's highway mpg.
