Well hope his recovery goes smoothly.

Has he come around on appreciating your Z any?

Not so much of a not appreciating, certainly recognizes the work, just not so into. More into Gassers.

Wow, has it been two years already??

Manifolds were off in '70,bellhousing in '76, and I did a number to the munci in '90 at the drags,went automatic. So it has been many summers since they were all mated. Burnt the midnight oil last night and decided to set it in.

Fenderwells and rad support getting coated next week, hinges-springs, and z bar out to Cali for restoration, trim at Dell's. Sprung for a repop fan, fan clutches out there too rich for my blood, went with a hayden hd. The born with one's some how came up missing around 10+ years ago. Original exhaust is getting hung in a few weeks.

Dad's still kicking👍

Thanks Bentely! Been there, done it with this car: shows,drags,cruises. This is what I've been longing to do to it. However, like a few others on the site,when inspiration's lost, put it away.
But,,time to put a period on this project. My son and I were doing some fabbing on something last weekend, and I have really been getting the bug to build another drag car.

From what I gather,Rusted Tires, from the Yenko site, is the "go to" for the E-70's?
