Yep, I agree with all that Larry. Loved all of it, and it ended up bringing the family closer together- and all the great friends and community from the club too, and it really got my mind off work. Scott...I do agree, better to go slower and do it the way you really want it. Otherwise...you might end up doing it twice.
I didnít have to wait until I was retired, but did wait until I could afford it - at least at a certain pace- I had all my other cars paid for so I just thought of it as a car payment.
Larry, when I get back and finish the radio and the windows Ill have to drive over and weíll go for a spin. It feels like every time I drive it itís breaking in a little more and running better and better.

So I decided to go with the 347. I had Johnson's Machine down in Lacey/Tacoma build it and I have to say it was a pleasurable experience. Communication was excellent along with his knowledge of Ford motors. They broke it in on the dyno and is now currently residing on the stand next to the car.

While the motor was out I had Thurston County Transmission go through the C4. Again I feel like I was lucky work with another company who I had a good experience with. Being that I am new to Washington, one of my biggest fears was trying to find good, reputable shops to complete the work that I needed done to the car.

I took advantage of an empty engine bay and sanded everything down and painted it. I was cussing at whoever used some sort of rubber undercoating spray inside the entire bay. After a lot of elbow grease and time, it's looking like new again.

I ordered my Doug's headers the first week of November and finally received them 4 days short of four months. I sure hope that they were worth the wait.

Motor and tranny is going in tomorrow and if all goes well with the motor install and alternator swap, I hope to turn the key by Sunday.
