The radio was installed by alocal stereo shop.  It needs to have a little more bass than it has, hard to hear with the top down. 
 
And those are dryer sheets in the tailpipes to keep mice away.  I use mothballs everywhere else.

I'll make an attempt to post some pics here on my ongoing process of painting the engine compartment and replacing the 440 in my '70 Fury 'vert. 
 
Wanna post some pics for me Lea?
 
I am replacing the harness with one from my parts car, painting the engine compartment, and converting it back to manifold style exhaust as well as replacing the 440. 
 
The interior is already done, but I'll post some pics on that too.  I installed the console and Nigel at National Moparts had the buckets. I bought them from him almost 6 years ago and had them redone.  That was well worth it IMO.
 
I hope to have it done by late Spring and have it ready for a trip to Carlisle.  I may place it for sale in the corral to see what kind of interest it garners. 
 
It's a GT clone BTW.

I FINALLY made it to Starrucca Viaduct in the Fall. It's very impressive.  The Lackawanna bridges are newer than Starrucca and built as a moderinization and grade elimination project by the Lackawanna RR in 1915.  This project eliminated many severe grades and gave the Lackawanna the shortest route of any carrier between NYC and Buffalo.  The portion between Binghampton and Scranton survives as part of the D&H division of the CP. NS and the Delaware-Lackawanna RR operate the rest in the area of the water gap and in upstate NY.  Conrail abandonedthe New Jersey segment (know as the cutoff or Lackawanna Cutoff) to prevent competition from obtaining it and diluting it's lucrative traffic base of chemicals and merchandise in to the metro area. 
 
NJ and PA want to rebuild it to host an NYC-Scranton Amtrak train as well as some commuer service.  The abandoned portion was removed in 1983.
