Barge on Budget 2014 Bit of a lull.

The original 383 is still in the car and will be used.
Despite the car being apart,the engine still runs albeit needing a serious tune-up.
Funny now that I think of it,I was going to scrap the car.But after I got her running she talked to me..
Here is a vid from last summer..

Keeps on ticking...

I am the testimate that Ma built strong engines...
when you drive your 440 with three cyls out for a week in a 5000 lb car (while you get the coin to fix it). That is a strong unit...

Lea you'll have er' hummin like the 440 in no time!

Not to mention when the 74 ran for a greater portion of a afternoon
with no oil , and when we meaning I put oil in the engine steam came
from the block, how about that for tough fellas.

Not much goin' on .Hoping to get back on it this weekend.
.Just keeping my eyes peeled for more parts.
I scored this part after a two year search.Such a common piece,but all of the ones I found were broken or wrong color.It is plastic and goes between the right side doors in a 4 door hardtop
This one is black and perfect! E-pay of course.
Cost? 40 bux..Cheap for an NOS part IMHO..

I was hoping on getting this but it is waaay out of my budget.Some thing I cannot justify spending that much for such a tiny part.
I have an old one that will do..

The one I am bidding on is the correct one.
I would assume Susan's whip is aftermarket replacement.
I can get a cheap knock off as well,but when the opportunity arises I try to grab it..
Foamy,it is funny how people pick up on the "little" stuff. I noticed this at shows and cruise nights when my car got "dissected".

Ray came into town today and we did some work on the car.
Ray welded up the pieces I fabricated for the tailpanel.Not pretty now but will be hard to detect after I am done detailing the trunk area
