Got the plates in the mail and I took my new car out for the initial spin today. I did drive it when I looked at it but it seemd to have a lack of power. Well since I it home I have been going through all of the fluids, brakes, fuel lines to make sure every thing was. safe. Well come to find out the tank was bone dry at the dealership. I added some fresh gas, toped off the oil, charged the battery, and added some seafoam to the gas, crank case, and carb. After that I took it out and around the block to get the temp up. After I was comfortable everything was ok and some mild crusing for about 20mins, I wanted some RPM's. I shifted into second at a stop light out on my county highway. When the light turned green I went WOT, that 396 really came to life and suprised the heck out of me. The RPM guage went to 5000 and the rear tires laid down some 11's even with the Q-jet. That fresh gas and clean out really did it some good. I cruised it easy for about another 20 min before heading home. I was just having too much fun, part of the way with the A/C on and the original AM/FM pushbuttion radio playing some tunes. Yea life is good.
