    Ugh! I just read through your thread and now I’ve got to read the thread about the vert. My eyes hurt! JK, awesome job on both! Nice to see your’re keeping the six in it.

            Awesome job on the the six banger. Knew they use to put Offenhauser kit's in the slant six for racing. It would scream.

                I am giddy.... don't tell the wife but I have a line on a '67 Coronet Convertible with a 273 in Phoenix.... I have a spy going to look at it and see how complete it is but the guy just finished a '67 RT and want to trade a friend for a space Duster but he wants to reduce his herd so I may be able to help that deal happen and take the '67..... "Once you go A you never go back" may be just a wife's tale.... Photo for effect but I love these in fire engine red....

                    The wife's Dart took home her first trophy... even with a non-factory, incorrectly cut air cleaner filter decal that never really existed..... (@Billccm)

                      I noticed over at FABO everyone focused on the air cleaners in your post. By now you should realize this is the most important under-hood detail that requires your attention. I'd see about laser, or CNC trimming so Dennis Gage will be impressed enough to film a feature on this car. Trust me, you will sleep better at night once you do this detail.

                        Oh, did I forget to post a photo of the air cleaners Mark? That must have been an accidental oversight on my part....

                          Wow I cleaned off my temporary workbench and pulled the cover of it and found a B Body. Movie stars are often quickly forgotten. Now the wife’s Dart is done I jump in that to go the store. Can’t remember the last time I drove the Coronet.

                          Getting all 3 girls ready for the fist big show next weekend in Sierra Vista. First time they will all be together at a show!
