Great project! i really don't understand just why there aren't dozens of 289s and 302s as well as all of the other manufacturers "econo" V8s being done.

I feel exactly the same way. I just won't sell my soul to go racing. It's not worth it anymore.

Very true, but also many believe you have to go fast and be a chaser in order to win anything. Simply not true, right, Billy?

Well good news. I sorted out the motor problems (air leak) and it's running great now. Got the valve springs changed and tuned it in as best I can without driving it. I have next week off so Ill finish up all the little things left to do and plan on having it on track in Tucson Jan 1st.

Great news!

And that's a big part of why I aimed for a slower car myself, trying to keep the expense and maintenance work under control.
