It's heck getting old...


I still work on some of my stuff, but a total restore is beyond me.

AND bifocals dont work worth a hoot looking up.
I have a friend who's a carpenter/remodeler. He has his work-glasses made with the bi-focals at the bottom and the top of each lense. Wonder what that costs.

those z's were chebbys answer to the furds etc for Nascar racing. they had to pump out so many to be called stock regular units and then they could go nascar racing with them.

the 302 was RATED at 290 hp but rumored to be more like 335 with a good tune up and a couple easy tweaks.

Saw a bare block somebody wanted 8500 bucks for,,,and how do you KNOW for sure its build able???? After the money is paid defects come fast. btdt.

But when you see the dollar value of a restored 60s-70s era muscle car, it makes the resto cost a little easier to live with.

It was rumored that a lot of muscle car engines produced much more horsepower than advertised, but were "officially" de-rated to prevent insurance agents from having coronaries .
