    Spent the winter sorting out my suspension issues with the '81. The car has been on a full Hotchkis suspension since 2006 but the front of the car always set 3/4" higher than the back. I went ahead and put new Hotchkis coils in the front and it leveled the car out. I also had installed Edelbrock shocks back in 2006 and went ahead and swapped those out for new Konis all the way around. The 377ci sbc got a new set of Comp Roller Rockers and Fitech fuel injection which is amazing. The throttle response is really impressive and cold start problems are a thing of the past. Other than that I sprayed my factory wheels in "vintage copper" and had a fresh alignment done. June 6th will mark 20 years with this car and I still feel like i'm 16 when I get behind the wheel.

    Which Hotchkiss coils did you use?
