    Awesome car, congratulations! There's something magical about that combination of a 426 hemi and a convertible. It was an article on a '71 hemicuda convertible in Musclecar Review that really sparked my interest in muscle cars when I was 16. I'd love to have anything with a 426 hemi in it.

    The good news is that they let me in the plane, but the bad news is that they said I have a polyp.

    Joel, don't forget to take lots of pictures on your trip!


    See picture, above - the trunk is big enuff for a whole heard of monkys.

    Did you notice that the top is blue?

    One thing about this Hemi is that it is SO quiet, there is none of the normal solid lifter valvetrain noise. So two things crossed my mind regarding that, but I didn't have time to pull a valve cover: maybe someone swapped in a juice cam; or maybe someone set the lash way too tight and an occasional non-seating intake valve could blow enuff compression back into the intake to cause the momentary hiccups.

    For the love of numbers matching goodness - one of 17! WOW - that's one heck of a nice 401k plan you just bought!

    WELL DONE!

    Sweet car, bummer on the no road trip. But you really don'r want to have to go walking and leave that on the side of the road. Auto or 4 speed ?

    What a beauty! The engine is amazing


    looks like you need to crank up the torsion bars an inch or two
