    j.c.whitney jeep seats. $107.00 a piece, with tracks. that's why i bought them over the speedway ones. they look smallish, but they're not uncomfortable. less is more.

    turns out a friend of the club owned this thing in the mid 90's. he was at our show last sunday & confirmed it was the same car by the "speaker" hole in the the rear package tray that looked like it was carved out with an ax. he sent me some pics. that's all for now.

    Man, I looked at the old Caddy. Lotsa work in that, bro.
    Glad you got into this shoebox. That Caddy was way too 'now', looked real 'Obamaish'...

    hey man im with ya on that! Been driving around town with my tunnel ram and a couple miles on the highway too. Lots of fun. Mine doesnt like to idle till warmed up but thats cause of the cam. 2 600 afb's on a 283 chevy motor. Solid cam with .533 lift and 108 seperation and 254 duration at .050. roller rockers, bbc pump, and all the good stuff that goes along.

    yeah man keep playing with the tune, you'll get it. that cam you got is really close to the one i'm running in my 305. i finally got a round to tuning it with a vacuum gauge last week, it's never run better.

    Aluminum wheels look much better on the rear. Need to swap the taller cheaters onto them.

    i actually decided to mount the 15x10 cheaters on the steelies. i just didn't trust the lug holes on the mags, too sketchy even for me. i just haven't got a pic up yet.

    thanks, glad you like it.

    put in a lil work on the car today. nothing big, just a new headlight switch & a new plate light/mount. i hated the stupid "robot dong lookin" plate light i had on there cuz my last one got busted. i also took the time to smooth out the welds on the bumper where it meets the frame. remember, i learned to weld on this car (still learning) so it was a bit ugly. looks much better to me now. first time in a long time i actually enjoyed workin on a car.









    ...oh yeah, new tires are on.

    What a nice, pleasant, upstanding looking car. Nice work. That should make your neighbors dog miscarry a puppy or two. Well done.
