    Hello from Florida

    Presently in St Pete Beach, but will be relocating the car to Melbourne, Fl the 16th. Originally bought it in OKC. Good to see a website for the 71-73 crowd.

        Nope, it's a 5.0 from an 87 Mustang. Gives me the roller cam and HO firing order so I don't have to deal with the Flat Tappets and Zinc issues.

          Nice! I just got a 306 Ford Racing Crate for my 72 Coupe...it has the aluminum X heads and E303 roller cam! It should thump a little!

            I had seen that over on VMF. I've thought about it, but the current engine already has more horsepower than I have brains.... That's why I did the Scarebird Disc Brake upgrade.....

                Thanks for the kind words!

                I'm going to have it repainted in the same color. The paint on it looks great, but is very thin. I accidentally banged a spot on the passenger front fender and had a small dimple of paint ot come off the size of a pencil eraser. It annoys the heck out of me, and when I saw how thin the paint layer was, it worried me even more. I'm lookinginto a complete repaint, plus clearcoat to get it to have some protection.

                I just had a shop add Classic Air's air conditioning kit, LED bulbs for the dash, a new HEI distributor, Ford Racing valve covers and air cleaner, a passenger side mirror, and a host of other nagging repairs.

                I want to add a new dual exhaust, with Dynomax VT's, and will be converting to a T5 with either 3.55's, 3.73's or 4.10's in the rear. I want something that will jumo off the line, but cruise nicely when I choose to .

                How about you?
