Re: 1969 XR-7 “R Code” convertible at the Russo & Steele Auction - Scottsdale 1/18 or 1/19 - NO RESERVE

Still looks as good as it did when I first saw it in Louisville in 2005. :thumbup: That's a hard one to let go of and I'm sure many beers were consumed coming to that decision. Good luck on the sale

Re: Oh no!

The most popular car you see on the road course tracks. They’re cheap and handle good but low on power. Some of them can be real competitive modified. They are really close match to my cobalt SS the only Difference is the Cobalt has a lot more power but pretty equal going through the corners. It’s a...

Re: Lifter swop

OK, just doesn’t make sense why are you swapping lifters when you’re doing just the cylinder head change? If they are flat faced lifters. You need to keep the lifters & camshaft together. New camshaft and new lifters need to stay together once they have been ran together. Do not swap between used ca...

Re: started rstoration on my 69 Cougar base model

Re: The October 2018 Ride of the Month is Wayne Brander's '68 XR7-G

Congrats Wayne! Look foward to seeing your XR7 G someday. Leon was right. The period from about 1965 to 1973 was indeed the golden age of the automobile. I think the silver age was from 1973 to about 2003. During that time early on you could purchase a rare used muscle car dirt cheap and they were s...

Re: Red GT-E - Mecum Indy - May 2018

Was digging in some parts this weekend to find some fasteners and came across this vin tag from a 68 Cougar I parted out years ago. It had screws to the vin tag. It was a standard with a three speed.
