Well, it looks like the DRTYBRD may be alive again...shooting for Tuesday sometime to hear the engine come back to life.

It will be a little while longer before it is ready to drive every day...but I have been waiting a long time to get back behind the wheel of this best...I cannot wait to hear that supercharger wind up through all six gears again.

I will update again this week...

But here is a pic of my Edge from today.

I just bought a Mazda CX-9, which is the sister car to your Edge. We love it so far, but how could you not love a brand new car! :)

Love the rims!

So...is it alive?
ALMOST!!!

I am really hoping to hear the engine fire up very soon...finally tracked down an electrical gremlin this week.

The dash SHOULD be going back in this week...I am in Portland, OR for a race this weekend.

I will definitely post when it's back among the living...

That Edge is bada$$. Can't wait to see the engine picts! What race are you at?
I am doing the "Hood to Coast" run...I'm on a team of 12 injured vets running 199 miles from the top of Mt Hood to the Pacific Ocean in 24 hours...

It should be a cool run...we each do three legs.

That's great to hear. I'll finally get the other black supercharged bird that was in your driveway for a bit back on the track this weekend. Not to worried about what it runs since it's August and the track isn't the best, but it will get me ready for the cool weather when I go see what her best times will be. :)

OK...The DRTYBRD is alive again. It's running again...now to put the interior back together and repaint. That should go quickly...I will be in Stowe, VT this week, then up in Lake Placid, NY next...will get some pics and video when I get back.

I am excited to drive my Bird again soon.

Thanks for the updates! :)

Welcome to the East Coast, it's going to be a little cooler this week than it has been and a lot cooler than Arizona! :D

It's a great feeling to hear one of these things come back to life after being dormant for so long. :)

Post a pic or 4 of the bird. I know Ive seen far away shots youve posted. Good to hear it will fly again. I bet this will be one hot bird once done. Like a phoenix from the ashes.

Ok...I turned the key and started it today...I love that sound! The dash was just put back in last week while I was gone and the interior is still gutted.

But it is running again! I have high hopes she will be back at home in the near future. We are going to strip it down to the metal and repaint it, hopefully next week. The interior is gutted, but all the pieces are ready to go and that should be a quick reassembly.

I shot a short video, and will try to get it on here soon.

Of course I am traveling most of the rest of the month...
