Motorama Or Bust: Part 8


It’s been just less than a year since the last update on the Taylor’d Dodge but this one is one that many of you have been waiting for.

In preparation for this weekend’s Detroit Autorama Blair put a lot of work into making the car in a much more drive-able state, seats were upholstered and put in, the shift linkage was sorted out, air ride checked over, fluids filled and the car was fired for the first time.

The video below documents the first start and idle, and is, as far as I know, the only video of a Latham supercharger running anywhere.

As one can imagine there’s still a bit more teething to do before the car is out and driving, but there’s plenty of summer ahead and lots of rubber to burn!
