    I wouldn't do anything but de-tune it for the street, only if I had to. then enjoy it just the way it is.

    It's got "the look".

    Ed Martin Did you drive a 56 chevy with a 392 hemi, at U. S.- 30 in the 60s? The one I remember was called Contradiction. The car was built in a garage in Sauk Village, along U. S.- 41 Don in N. W. In.
