    • I had just gotten the car fired up after sitting at my brothers house for 4 years without it running.  Anxious to see what it could do and to give the engine a good "blowing out" I drove to the local 4 lane highway and I laid into it on the entrance ramp.   As I reach the top of the ramp getting ready to merge the speedo said 75 and as I looked into the side mirror I saw the local police coming up on the main highway behind me.   I figure he would light me up but instead he just stayed on my tail.  Laying off the gas and taking the first exit I took the back road back to my house with him in tow.  After pulling into my drive he pulled up and got out of his cruiser.  He ask how I was doing and I said fine.  He mention that he had clocked me at 77 and I told him that it was the first time out with it and I wanted to give it a good run and I said I was sorry.  He  looked at me with a half smile and said that with a car like that he would of gave me up to 90 mph before considering pulling me over.   Come to find out he was into muscle cars and he has a 69 Chevelle SS with a 396.   After talking cars for about a half hour he said he had to get back to work.   I have seen him numerous times since then and we have become friends.  
    • There are 429/460 valve cover spacers out there if you want to use the stock valve covers. Chuck
    • Yes, a Pertronix ignitor 1 runs with the resisted voltage but it runs better with full 12V. If you want to keep your standard coil and resistant wire you just need to install a relay for the switched 12V feed. Attention! Keep in mind that you can blow a Pertronix Ignitor 1 very fast when ignition is on but engine is not running. Frank
    • Good point John. A Pertronix Ignitor I can be run on reduce (resisted) voltage and stock coil. The PII (and PIII) NEEDS a full 12V and higher output coil. These can be run off a Pertronix relay without the need to cut out or bypass the old pink resistor wire.
    • I also have the pertronix 1 and use a stock coil with zero issues for the last 7 years.

      Have not been active on here for some time now.
      One year ago my wife was diagnosed with an untreatable liver cancer and I lost her in January. It has been a tough go, but trying to get back in a groove now.
      Took my convertible out Saturday and took a few pictures. Will be taking a few more in next couple weeks.

      Picked up my 1968 mustang GT 302 4v 4 speed from the paint shop. A  Promised 3-4 month job turned into 9 plus months. Going to take it for a drive tonight.
      My deceased wife picked the color which is Candy Brandy Wine. Stop at Sonic and get a ice cream cone.

      Hi just joined the 7173 club. I have a beautiful blue beast which is great for cruising the local roads. The car was imported into Australia in 1988 and converted to RHD - one of the very few convertibles to be converted. Use by previous owners ass a Wedding Car it is in great condition and the 351 still has a wonderful rumble. Looking forward to following this group.
