LOL I never post much since it was painted. Today I spent all morning detailing her. Wash wax and moisturize the top. Did the wheels.

She dont age at all looks like the day she was painted.

Went to the rod run in Daytona today. Was able to find an intake for my 69 427, got a front fender for the 68. Was not able to find a tail light housing for the 68 though.

Well the boat is pretty much finished now for all intents and purposes. I am getting a new motor next month. I just put all new seals in the outdrive and pressure tested it. So I been sitting on my hands bored.

I built a 327 and used my cars original crank in it. It has solid lifters and a Z-28 cross ram intake. Then the car was looking so good I wanted to do a big block. Back then it didn't matter I would be doing bodywork for 10 years.

Anywho I talked to my brother that old motor is on the stand still in his garage. He talked me into it. It is coming home and i gonna put it in the car. At least it will run and run good. It has a silly solid lifter cam like I liked in my youth. But it will sound wicked as all get out.

I miss working on the chev. I need to get a can of orange paint and get to polishing on this intake. I got to rebuild the carbs and make linkages. we got places to go and people to see.

Glad to hear it, hopefully you'll be driving your car come spring. I am going to save the crank, rods, sheetmetal from the 307... and scrap the rest. I have a couple of spare 350 blocks, etc. Doubt I will ever do anything with it, but who knows? I always wanted to do a 66-67 Chevy II with a high-winding small block and a 4 speed.
