  • Alan, That 541 looks so cool in the Caddy..... I think the Power Coating of the fender wells is a great idea.....

I hate polishing stuff. This way, I can clean it with a damp rag.

        As she is...

        That oughtta keep yu busy this winter Alan - hopefully out of trouble too.

            If you do be sure to give me a howdy ..... truck is a ten footer - stay back ten feet and it looks o.k.

            I need Rett to put me in his will - or make me the curator of his museum in San Diego.

                Could this be a simple spelling error? Perhaps the "T" was supposed to be an "N"

                  Or maybe it was supposed to be TnA?

                  • Every year we plan for the Tour and then something comes up. So here we go again. The plan was to bring our Malibu Wagon on the Tour. But we have decided to take our 1978 Trans Am instead. Going to need a little bit of work to be ready. But not as much work as the wagon needed. Only concern right now is the solid roller in the Pontiac 400. Anyone else have experiance with running solid cams on a long tour? Should I keep it or pull it out?

                      I ran a mechanical roller for 3 years on tour in my Ford. Since I have had the joy of experiencing a grenaded lifter before I tended to error on the safe side and therefore replaced the lifters ($$$$$$$$$$$) every year along with a very close inspection of the spring pressures. I also carried a spare set of lifters in the car just in case as it is somewhat harder to pick up a set of lifters for a Ford at Kmart.

                            • 4th tour, 3rd Long Haul

                              This will be my 4th Power Tour.

                              Took my 69 Charger in 2005 (Short Haul) and 2007 (Long Haul).

                              Fast forward a few years and a few cars, in 2010 I Long Hauled in my 1970 Challenger R/T 440 six pack clone.

                              This year I'll be Long Hauling in my 72 Roadrunner. Built a new motor for it this past spring but had major issues with the remanufactured heads. Santa Claus is bringing me an upgrade though. Should have it back together in plenty of time. I'll also dust off the 2.76 gears and swap out the 3.55s.
