It's those cement shoes that Steve got him for Christmas. 
 
 
My Dart has a Carter BBD and the Chrysler has an AFB.  Both are the original type, may be the original carbs for all I know.
Rebuilding the BBD went pretty well, so I'm thinking of doing the AFB this spring.  I know it hasn't been touched in the 5 years I've owned the car, so who knows how long it's been.

The funny thing is that the economy seems to have improved. When he
fills up tomorrow we want to see what happens when the car is drivin
minus the foot if you know what I mean. I'm expecting the milage to
improve just a little bit.

I've kind of mixed it up a bit-
'68 Newport Custom-stock (actually NOS) Carter 2 bbl.
'68 New Yorker- 800 CFM Edelbrock Thunder series AVS w/electric choke
'68 300- 750 CFM Edelbrock Performer w/ electric choke
'70 Wagon- 850 CFM Demonsizzler Thermoquad
'70 'vert- same as wagon
 
As far as driveability is concerned, the Newport wins, followed closely behind by the wagon and convertible.  Only problem with the TQ's is they don't like the hot start, especially the wagon.  I'm still kind of torn, I may TQ-ize the 2 '68's yet, but that would mean intake and carb linkage issues.  If you are unfamiliar with demonsizzler, go to www.thermoquads.com
