I do know I did a lot of things back then I don't have a lot of recollection regarding. I lived in a fog in my late teens and early 20's.
I remember helping a friend install a 351C in an early Mustang when in high school. It was a very tight fit. I recall that a sledge hammer was involved.

I also remember that same mustang driving full throttle through a Taco Bell drive through sign and ending up straddling the hood of a Delta 88. Those were fun times.
