    But you're neglecting Camaro, Nova, Chevelle, Duster, Mustang, Firebird, Corvette, etc.

    There are a whole bunch of neat cars to build.
    But your used to winning . No point in carrying all the extra weight .

      I'm thinking of building something that won't have a chance of winning. But it would be a lot of fun.

        oh...back on topic...I dropped my old switch pitch torque converter off at my son's house a week ago, he finally brought it to Hughes today, they said it's kind of toast inside. but they have the parts to fix it, so they'll do that. I should have it back in a couple weeks, then I can pull the transmission and see what's wrong with second gear.

          I fixed the transmission a week ago, new second gear clutches, sprag, and a 4L80E direct drum. Seems to work ok.

          Also a momentous night...finally took my wife for a ride in the car.

            How does the 4l80e drum differ? Or is it an availability thing?

              The outer sprag race is a little wider, to accommodate the 4 plate clutch, and the drum is machined differently to accept the wider race.

                Was it the new seats that convinced her to go for a ride??

                  They helped. And, that was part of my plan in getting those ones....

                          Thanks, we're doing fine. Adjusting to her being retired is not that difficult.

                            Just watched you go 10.81 @ 131 at Great Lakes . Did you have a problem on the return road ?

                              ME and I have hit a slightly different stride but we've adjusted pretty easily, too.
