After a lot of futzing around with the rebuild of my 261, carbs, etc., I started it up for the first time in quite a while. It started right up and the radio came on playing the beginning of Elton John's "Rocket Man." Exhilarating to say the least. I sat in the pilot's chair and cranked it up to let the neighbors enjoy it too.

What song would you like to play at first startup after significant work on your Stovebolt?
