Well this year 2018 hasn't been the best for driving my car. It sits in the garage here in 60' temps.
I don't put hardly any anti-freeze in. Mostly water and lube for the pump. No need if garaged for the winter.
I'm getting anguish to get it out when weather permits. I like that kick in the pants feel.
One of my goals this summer is to take it to the track and see how it runs in the 1/8 & 1/4 mile.
What's with the 383 stroker, almost 11 to 1 compression, 600 Edelbrock, 700R4, headers and 3.73 posi..
I just had this last fall, the whole front end rebuilt. Adding a 2.5(?) steering box. It handles like a cart.
Heavy front springs(96 SS) and overload rear springs, plus new shocks. 1.5 front sway bar w/sway bar in rear. You can tell the sporty suspension.
After getting it broke in this last summer I got about 7-800 miles on the engine. Before giving an all out through the gears.
Standing still, put in regular drive (no OD). It has a high rpm governor that makes it shift at about 5000 rpm.
Using a little foot brake torque with a smaller convertor(4.3 V6) and launches. The 1st. to 2nd. is great.
Hoping to continue this summer.
