I think you are right about the times. People that are spending bucks are either investors or people that want that car they had or wanted back in the day. When the age group that want them are gone or too old the investors will not have a market and I believe they will come down. Years ago you would snubbed for modifying a 55 chevy but now it is commonplace because most of the real 55 guys are just not in the market. The muscle car guys now probably average around 60 years old judging from car show attendance, so time will tell soon enough.

I like Hooker Headers, Flowmaster mufflers, but you need some cam duration to make it thump. Once this is done without a little gear you have a good sounding dog concerning performance. My GTO with the RAM Air cam and 323 gears would not operate in 4th under 40 miles per hour. A set of 390,s and she lit up but it took bucks. Now it takes gas.

Restoration / Re: Sand blasting... Chassis

Just FYI. At my body mans request I had my 77 trans am media blasted for a repaint. Since it was not a body off resto I taped off the dash, removed the interior and bumpers. The engine and drivetrain is fine so I left it in the car. The blasting (did not ask but looks like a plastic sand) did well for paint and rust removal. The media found it,s way into everything, taped off or not. After blowing, vacuuming, and washing many times the stuff is still stuck to wiring, cables, in wire connectors, and to anything that was oily. I had to removed the dash and and clean all wires and connections, ect. It even stuck to the throttle cable which stuck during a wide open burnout. This past weekend after another wash,vacuum and blow, I drove down the road with windows down and it is still coming out of everywhere. Unless I have a shell only or disassembled parts only, it is back to paint stripper for me.

Just my 2 cents, I have a 69 with the passenger mirror located same as the drivers side. 1977 photos (last repaint) show it there also. My brother has a 68 very original that is the same way. No problems using them. I would say dealers did whatever they thought.

They were but did it in the collector. If you looked in the collector the tubes were ran until all 4 were equal. Someone was reproducing the at one time.

October issue of Popular Hot Rodding has some interesting header articles. The one describing the temperture difference of Coated versus painted really woke me up. They run much cooler.

I recently started an engine that had set since 06. Icould not read anything on the dipstick even after adding oil. My haste got me and I tryed to start it and bumped it then it locked up. I pulled the plugs and found engine oil in the cylinders. Having come to my senses I drained the oil pan to find several gallons of water. New plugs and oil and I have drove it several hundred miles with no problems except an occasional lifter sticking.
