    WTB 429 Fan Shroud

    Finally getting around to getting serious about selling my Mach 1. The engine has torqued the fan blade into the fan shroud and beat it up some so I'm looking for a replacement. I ordered one but it was immediately refunded when they found out they didn't have any. Anyone know of a source?

    Time for her to go. 71 429 SCJ

    Life can change in a hurry and mine has. I'm downsizing a bit so that I'm able to retire at 46. That means some sacrifices have to be made and in my case that means my 71 Mach 1 429 SCJ has got to go. Asking price is 46k. I bought her about 16 months ago from an ad on this site. I've put...

    Bought a Boss LS - Road Trip!

    So Monday my Girlfriend and I are flying to San Diego to pick up a lightly used 2012 Boss 302 Laguna Seca (black and red) I purchased this week. This is the actual first Boss I ever saw in person back in June 2012. It was owned by a co-worker of mine. Before that I'd only read about them and...

    Dyno results

    I had my car dyno tuned yesterday. It initially put down right at 280 horsepower and 335 torque. After adding some timing and carb adjustments to lean it out a bit the final numbers were 302 and 355. I would think that allowing for drive train loss these numbers are very close to the factory...

    Almost complete

    I'm getting new Magnaflows next week and my 71 Mach 1 429 SCJ will be complete. I thought I would post a few pictures as a sneak peak. When she is finally finished and we have a sunny day I'll get more pictures taken and a video or two and get them posted.

    So the nostalgia of having a car that sounds like a demon straight out of hell has worn off and the Flowmaster 40s have to go. I'm not looking to make a huge step down in sound but need some suggestions for mufflers that will still let that big block sing without vibrating my teeth out with...

    Hot Rod Power Tour

    Any one here ever do the Hot Rod Power Tour? I started this new year by moving into semi-retirement and don't plan on working for awhile so this year might be the perfect year for me to do this. I would most likely drive my 71 convertible. I'm just wondering what it is like.
