Sense I have a distributor that I am restoring I guess I need an engine for it to go in.  Now hold your breath.....  It isn't the correct numbers motor..

Didn't get to work on the red car components over the weekend due to doing a quicky brake job on the wife's car and installing a led light bar on my daily.  I did get a chance to clean up the Mallory cap.  Also with it being so dang cold here in middle TN; the wife and I have a couple stray cats that we feed and because we are animal lovers we bring them inside when it's below freezing.  Tonight I guess you could say I have a temporary shop cat..  We have named this little fella One Ear..  Original I know but it stuck.

 The cat most likely heard about the mouse motor (aka: small block) and is looking for it.  ;)

Not so much an obsession as an appreciation. Alot of money sitting around back there, he serves his purpose. Send me a pm sometime dwc, have a few parts you maybe interested in if your going street/strip-day 2 with the project. Cleaning shop this winter.

Bet the One Ear got his head caught in the fan on start up -

I actually had one do that, and survive. Horrendous racket on start up.

I banned my cat(s) from the garage after I found one of mine, wet from rain, curled up on the convertible top on my Z11.  The other one had jumped from the workbench to the rear deck on the LS5 and missed, scratching the paint to the point where it took a good bit to buff it out. No more cats in the garage -

Regards,
Steve

Yeah no cats in the garage when there are cars present.  I pulled the wife's car out as it is the only one in the garage currently.

How about some pics of the body of the car?
I would like to see what kind of canvas you have to work with. Any prior repair work to it? I know it had been sitting for a number of years, maybe some walk around pics?

Darrell, thatís going to be a nice 68, looking forward to seeing it coming together. Seems like cats take a interest in old muscle cars coming back to life:) it does take time to teach them what wrench to hand you when you ask for a 9/16. Mine thinks she is the number one co-owner and I need to fetch the tools for her.
