    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.

    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.

    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....

    it'll be great with an LS

    and for the purists.... the Y block in the car was welded to fix a crack above the starter.... there is no saving that pig... it also needs mufflers (they have holes in them) and, in the proper BS way, we swap the motor/trans/suspension to fix that kind of problem
