Very good, Leo!

Also, I have a shorty antenna, no window tint, no AAT (you can see the sensors), and no side air bags (you can see the tag in the seat). And, I think it's an auto - I can see just the corner of the shifter area.

EDIT: Yep, just checked the write-up... it's an auto (her husband is not crazy about it - lucky son of a B I T C H).

See that is the difference between a single guy and a married guy. I didn't even notice A car let alone all the things that were missing to identify it as NOT being Tom's.

Believe it or not I almost put that motor combo in mine... but it needed rebuilding and I didn't have the money to do it at the time.

H-Pipe just arrived - just in time to have no time to do anything with it. Guess it will have to wait until next Wednesday and Thursday.

Wish my darn radar detector would get here!

We are going on a hot air balloon ride in the morning - who wants my car if I don't make it?

Mine was the stock 429, I just put different heads on it and some other go-fast goodies. I have yet to see another 429 in a 72 Torino. The 351 Cleveland is the most popular for restored/hot rodded Torinos

I got lucky, a friend of mine was building a '70 429 and ran out of money, so I bought the heads from him and had the block decked to '70 specs. I think I paid 150 bucks for the heads.

Geez, I miss that motor. I let it get away. One of my friends said to be over the weekend, "I still want to gouge your eyes out for letting it go"

The Marine looks at the Sailor and says, "When I was in boot camp, they told me not to **** on my hands."
These two gay guys are standing side by side at the urinal when the one guy notices that his buddy put a smoking patch on his weiner. Curious, he has to ask "So, you put the patch on your weiner?" "That's right." "Does it work?" "Sure does, I haven't had a butt in six weeks!"...

Uh, a 63 Plymouth Fury III station wagon with a 223 slant 6, 1bbl. did 0-60 in 17 sec. Was light blue, but the paint was flaking off to white primer and the roof had rusted. Friends called it rust, white and blue.
This is the car my parrents let me have. Other cars I looked at, at the time, 68 orange Mustang 4 speed, V8 think it was a 351 but may have been a 289, too long ago to remember. The other one was a 69 GTO vert , maroon with a black top and a 400 in it. Parents would not let me have that either. I attribute the Fury to my being alive today, would have killed my self with the other two.

A little older and wiser now, ?

Had a special VIP visitor tour my C-17 Facility today.

I even had the honor to give him a personal tour!

SCT Livewire!

The new SCT Livewire looks sweet!

Tom, looks like we won't need to get the G-Tech Pro after all!

This unit by SCT seems to do it all and store our custom tunes to be downloaded on the fly.
