went out yesterday driving with my son.  I had him take a couple of videos while I was driving.  the vid quality isn't great, but you get the idea.

this stretch of road is actually fairly steep uphill the whole way, its a little hard to tell in the vid. also, you can't tell but I was hitting close to 65mph, which may or may not be well above the posted speed limit .  the car has a new 418 with less than 500 miles so I am still keeping the rpm's under 5k.  in the video, I was never on gas pedal more than 20% , and was in 2nd-3rd gear.

Love those curvy roads and the sound of that engine. I live in the western end of North Carolina I enjoy heading up the Blue Ridge Parkway but you have to watch your speed there tickets on parkway are federal.

Sounds nice, I assume your engine builder got the tune figured out.

another vid cruising at about 65mph. I can't get over just how good this car is to drive now after a year of work.  I've have replace/upgraded most of the driveline, steering, suspension etc.  at 65mph there is not a single vibration and the car tracks dead straight.  the car is not nearly "done"...it needs electrical, hvac, weather stripping and a bunch of other minor stuff. the major mechanical work is completed

the black box on the dash with the flickering numbers is a satellite speedometer.  it does not flicker in real life, its just an FPS thing with the video capture.
