Any updates on the Olds powered Roadster?
Says the guy who's concerned with what 200 other guys are doing... :rolleyes: Nice thing about forums: you can keep scrolling.
Any reason you can't find another 78 case? Or early Ford 3 speed internals? They're not that hard to come by and would save a lot of effort over...
He did say in his last post that he was moving onto the next project soon. With all the negativity that popped up in this thread, I don't blame...
Good lord. Was not expecting that second version when scrolling through!
