I'm driving my 68 to church and going cruising afterwards...  Holidays are made for crusing!

Except when it's pouring rain and thunderstorms Sad

You have my complete sympathy! 
It's 82 degrees and not a cloud in the sky!  The preacher preached on a patriotic theme for Memorial day, the VFW Honor Guard posted the colors and we sang patriotic hymns.  We're having hot dogs and apple pie for lunch.  All that's left for a perfect day is cruising in my Chevy...  Grin  Grin  Grin

Just got back and saw all that rain at Indy... Bummer  Sad

For my 2 cents, if you'd like a slight lope at idle to make it sound good but not lose your driveability or vacuum, the Comp Cams 268 hydraulic is fantastic. It has just enough duration to sound like a 350hp cam and not kill your vacuum, and the lift isn't enough to worry about with stock springs. And it'll far outpull a factory 350hp cam because the lobe ramps are so advanced over the '60s stock hi-po cams. From experience I can tell you that a 350 with a 268 cam, headers and an Edelbrock Performer with a 600 Holley is a fun, peppy engine. Good luck!

From what I was told by the comapny that rebuilt my 350, the Edelbrock 2102 is just above the standard 350 cam and just below the 350/375 hp cam used in the Vette. It has just enough lobe to sound like the 350 but doesn't hinder the "crusing" side of the car. The company stated that the engine is closer to 350 hp but definetly is no less than 330hp. I am guessing the Comp Cam is pretty close to what the 2102 is. I know there is a lot more "pull" with this cam also than with the stock cam.
