    First stop - gas station!

    I have new cragar s/s wheels at home- not sure about putting them one since it will be spending some time in the body shop!

    Back in the bay-

    Transmission line was leaking a little so had to tighten that up a half turn. All good now! Washed it with degreaser. Need work and paint but looks better!

    Borla xs mufflers with X-pipe. Sounds ok- a little louder than I wanted.

    3 1/2 yrs but it's running and running like a wild cat! Rolling about 25mph- mashed it- when it down shifted it turned into a NASCAR sound and experience! Crazy power. No joke. Will take it to Holley and let Luke put it on the dyno and fine tune the mapping come early spring.

    Breathe- Hood clearance

    I will need to take off my teardrop and cut the hood and see just what kind of breather-filter on traction I van come up with and hollow out the drop and have it back on. The goal was always to have s stock appearance- and plus that is my favorite look for this car. No offense to anyone but I'm not a fan of the cowl hood on the 78-81's.
