    And of course the nice WIDE 8 body trunk & rear end!

    Casualties: water pump (2hours)
    Throttle body linkage (being stuck at 100mph is pretty high pucker factor)


    Let me know!

    I've got no problem going 100 but I wouldn't want to be stuck there

    I can only guesstimate what I've done in this (speedo only goes to 100 -- I've exceeded that mark)

    What motor?

    Well, the max i have had my 'port up to - so far - is 105. I have just completely gone through EVERYTHING - motor - trans e.t.c . I didnt want to push the motor - it only had 3k on it when i got stuck at 100! I thought I had a pretty high pucker factor - he sucked half the seat up his ass when i told him why we werent slowing down! What motors are in your cars?

    Sweet!

    My 'Port has the HIPO 383 4bbl I just had rebuilt - .30 over and a mild cam - I am planning on a Weiend<sp?> intake & a Holley Commander 950 (750cfm) fuel injection unit.....After that it will be time for a tranny with an overdrive...then a new rear end...What are your plans?

    Plans

    The '78 has been sitting for a looooong time so I'm pulling some parts that I can use on the '75

    I'll be attempting to make the running gear fit the Imperial (Imp brakes are a bitch to find) ;)

    What's left will be junked :crying:


    NOTE: The '78 hardtop & '78 convertible are the same car :p :big grin:
