    Thanks for the compliments.

    I am looking forward to the difference the TKO500 will make. With the Muncie, 75MPH was about 3200RPM where it should now be down around 2000. As it is a '64, it came with drum brakes. I feel the switch over to the '65 and later four wheel disc setup will also enhance the driving experience. Ditto for the Vintage Air. All in all, it should be a very nice driving car. Tomorrow it goes in for the alignment and then I can actually get it on the road.

    What no LS swap??? Very nice ride!! My dad had a 63 when he got back from the service. 327 4-speed had the take off hard top knock off mags. Sold it when my parents got married so he could build a house. Bought some crappy 60 chevy fullsize wagon to drive in its place! At least they still own the house!

    I considered it but decided I did not want to make that many changes to a numbers matching car.

    We had a huge car show(over 300 cars) last Saturday in Concord, NC. The only awards they gave out were to the "Top 20" and I got one of them. There were a lot of very nice cars there from all over the Charlotte area so I was pretty surprised when they called my name.
