Here is a list of links to my 2012 Engine Rebuild Project and various Other Restoration Projects and thought it might be helpful to pull them all together and post on our Restoration Forum.  See links below:

I often get asked about my history with the 64 Cadillac and the March 2014 Newsletter article I did featuring the 50th birthday of my 64 Coupe de Ville put's it all together rather nicely. I keep a PDF version on my iPhone and thought I would share here.   To check it out click on Jason's Story from March 2014 Newsletter.pdf

Beautiful job.

Thanks, It's crazy that it has been 8 years! Needs a bit of freshening up but has held up well.
