    It's Hilborn injected--has amazingly quick throttle response and gets respectable gas mileage as well. I'm having trouble tuning the butterfly valves on it and Hilborn hasn't been much help in this area either. I do think the Chrysler corporation of the 1950's would've approved of my choice over a carb...enter the Bendix Electrojector

    The light blue? shoe box top middle is a great looking piece.
    I would love to call that mine!

    My 57 cad that right now doesn't look very "hamb friendly" as some say here. But The paint is how it was when I got it and I'll take care of that after some other projects, I just finished getting this cad streetable and the seat cover I made just because the upholstery needs to be done and that like the paint has to wait.
