        I knew it was fast, but fast enough to travel 10 years back in time? I never figured that - but since it's on the internet, it must be true
        What are you, a English Composition professor, Jeez. How's this?
        I've been driving and evolving this car for 10 years now! I ORIGINALLY got it done just in time to make the first few stops of the 2009 Power Tour!
        See Post #123 in this thread

        As a side note, I had also originally got the car done for my 40th Birthday, so now I'm...
        Also thinking about what's still the same from the original iteration, not much. I think the chassis and most of the interior is still from the initial restoration. Every part of the drive train and suspension has evolved. I've saved everything so I nearly have an entire second car. LOL

          So you're saying you didn't travel in time.... how disappointing
          Doing it all wrong since 1966

            I have a new upcoming change on this. A few pages (Years) back I had purchased a new STR-11 cross-ram. I wasn't sure that was the direction I wanted to go. So long story short I sold that beautiful NEW STR-11 cross ram.
            Then I purchased an old crusty, and exceedingly rare UR-18 tunnel Ram. I'm excited about this!

            The hood I have was designed to fit over a tunnel ram, a different, and even more rare piece.

            My plan is to fabricate an airbox similar to what the '69 RKE T/A cars has from some obscure photos i've found.
            Not trying to exactly copy the T/A cars, but have a similar look and configuration. I like the Holley EFI option, so considering that as well.
            No changes to the car happening right away, but hope to get a plan and get stated soon now that I have my UR-18.

                Looking at various fueling options, I think the best option will be the new 'Sniper EFIs dual quad' Might be the best option at this point.
                I would really like to do twin 750 Dominators, but for getting around a track quickly I think the EFI route would be best. I can also control timing, electric fans, and all sorts of other wizardry that modern technology can provide.
                It seems the Holly Sniper EFI has moved ahead of some of the other EFI options, even there own ATOMIC branded kits.
                Also, the airbox I'll be fabricating will cover up the carbs anyway.
