got the alignments done today, goes down the road a little straighter now.
Also got the drivers door lock fixed, a few more items, and a day or two of tuning and it'll be ready to go to Power tour.

GM is hosting at the GM Milford proving grounds...this place is cool...lots of new vehicle testing done here...I got to go in there in 1985 with the Nat'l Council Corvette Clubs

Super conductors are the shiznit. Is that a mechanical tach drive? Holy crap. Is the dash all original in that puppy?

The dash and gauges are the originals Heath, they were still in nice shape and only needed cleaning to get them to look like they do.
I really like the dash and gauge layout too. The mechanical tach is super cool and its one of those things I gotta have...something else in there would just be out of place.

Dave, it does look pretty bad@$$ no boubt a dout it. But it would still look pretty bad@$$ with either of these two, and not only would you not need a new cable for your tack, but you could trust it as well!

http://www.autometer.com/cat_gaugede...id=3899&sid=74

Plus, you would save money if you didn't have to buy that fancy tach drive dizzy!

Anyway, enough ramlbing, that car is one of the nicest I have ever seen, excellent job with it. I hope you get a DP for it and wake that puppy up.

How much vacuum does your cam make at idle? I am a big fan of vacuum advance on the street, until you get to a point where you don't have enough vacuum to run it, then I'm a big fan of ditching everything and locking the dizzy solid. It's like viagra for your gas pedal, you push the go pedal, the tires go up in smoke.
