I have been lurking on this site for a long time, but I just joined so I could reply to this discussion. I am a true Blue Ford guy. But I also have a have a 1965 Corvette that I build way back in 1975. I had a radicaly built up 289 HIPO motor sitting on a stand and wanted to build a Street Machine like no other. I found a trashed 65 Corvette which I bought for $500. With a good friends custom bodyworking expertise, we managed to achieve that goal. I showed and street raced that Corvette the summer of 75 and 76. Drove it to the NSRA Nationals in Des Moines and Tulsa. After the Tulsa show, I tore it apart to install a Blown Boss 429. The Vette has been sitting in my garage apart now for over 40 years!!! I am now in the process of getting it back together after all those years.
