    • Yesterday Ford, today 73 C3
      still having trouble with this car dying... fuel is fine, thought it was the coil, but nope.... now changing to pertronix - maybe the resistor wire was bad, dunno, this solves that issue... but will it fix it? time will tell

      175 thunderous horsepowers there

      well it runs, again....

          my point remains the same, don't build your car for the internet.

                    There's not much art in looking at an LS. Maybe if you put a bag over it?

                      there's even less art in people discouraging 13 year kids. All it takes is to be old and bitter.

                        Are you trying to say that if you don't think an LS is Art you are being old and bitter and mean to 13 year olds? Chevy put a bag over pretty much the entire engine to hide it in the Corvette. I wouldn't send anybody out into the world with an LS swapped classic Ford if they weren't pretty thick skinned already. Me teasing it for being homely is pretty much nothing compared to what some people are going to say.

                          HOMELY - you may be a homie but a custom 300 is anything but HOMELY! It may be ugly with its bug-eyed headlights but folks have been frenching them for years to help clean up the frontal appearance. The rest of the car (in my opinion) has nice lines and isn't a Fairlane.

                          Oh, well, that is why they make so many models so everyone can find the one they want to put an LS in!!

                            The LS is homely, not the car. I love the car.
