Re: Did I miss the January auction stats?

I think you nailed it in your first line: 1) I have never seen more cars for sale in a year's period of time (Welcome Mecum in full spendor), The sense of urgency goes away when you are sure you will see another car just like this one at the next auction. We are seeing that in Boss 302 Eliminators. ...

Re: 427 v. 428

There never was a period where they were both available. To get the 427 you had to order the GT-E. There never was a time when you had a chance to pick one or the other. There were GT-E orders that were filled with the 428CJ when it replaced the 427. Given all that the 428 was much less expensive an...

He grew up in western New York, where he still lives. Back in the early 70's his friends were all into muscle cars. There were lots of great rides, th...

Re: 427 v. 428

The GT-E is now running a 735 CFM service replacement 428 CJ carb other specs as below. I am not saying that my experience is the right, or only, way this could turn out, but I do have two very similar cars with the two engines in question installed in them (nearly identical transmissions and rear a...

Re: Detailing the Engine Compartment.

I make the repros and they are all dipped. I have seen guys just load up a fan with spray paint until it ran. Paint used for dipping processes is thicker than spray paint. Or maybe I should say that spray paint has to be thinned to make it work, so the runs tend to be thinner.

Re: 427 v. 428

For clarity, the exhaust manifolds on both of my cars are stock. 428 CJ has CJ manifolds, the 427 has the stock 390 style manifolds. If you hold the two manifolds in your hand you can easily see how much better the CJ manifolds are. I suspect the 600 CFM would slow the 427 down some on the top end. ...
