    I am happy to say that after a complete summer of working on the car every day, I will mostly be driving it from this point forward.

    Moved my 65 from my garage to my Father-in-law's garage. Then put his 71 Firechicken in my garage to finish his body work. 71 T/A clone with fresh 400. My little 289 doesnt stand a chance. I feel a 408 stroker comin on!

    drove the car this morning, it seems to love the lower temps of fall. coming home after a stop sign made a right turn and stood on it..as the car shifted into second gear the rear end hit a bump in the road,it broke the tires loose and they started to peel out.. i just kept my foot to the floor with smoke everywhere. gotta love it!

    The body shop where I had it painted did it. They will warranty it when I get it out of storage in the spring. More of an inconvenience than anything. Car never sees rain, but I do want to wash it once a year.....LOL!

    Breaking in the new motor, cruised in the mountains for about 75 miles. I installed the courtacy lights. I finally ripped out the yellow spark plug wires and replaced with hipo 289 style wires.
