    steering wheel/column

    I've seen a couple of unrestored '70 SS454s that had color matched columns and steering wheels. Not all of them were black from the factory. It's possible that yours hasn't been changed. Dan

    windows at high speed

    Hey Jason. Silly questions first, the roof rail weatherstrip good? The little clip (triangular) where the a pillar meets the roof there? Is it loose, bent or missing? If that's all good, have you tried adjusting the window tighter? Up at the roof weatherstrip? Obviously as you found out, at those speeds, the air/wind moving over the car wants to suck the windows outward. I have gone only 119 mph so far with my set up but had the same issue. I adjusted the window tighter and have solved that issue so far. Good luck.

    windows at high speed

    So I'm looking for a solutions to keep my door windows from sucking out at 130 plus mph. At about 120 they start pulling away from the weather strip. Any ideas?

    Factory invoice 70&71 Monte SS

    Hey Kevin I have a parts car that is alittle over 100 away from one of them. But I was also hoping that there was someone else that had a match. Still think its cool to have them though.

    MC454SS Vacuum Leak, or.....?

    Valve spring replaced and problem solved! I used the "rope trick" to keep the valve in place. No other valve/rocker/push rod wear noted. Thanks for all the advice/assistance here. Interesting side note; when the #6 exhaust spring was removed, it was actually broken in two places! For as long as I've owned the car, it has had a slight noise on that side and always felt like it wasn't tuned properly. I've re-tuned it multiple times and checked for exhaust leaks over the years, but never felt it was completely "right". I suspect one of the breaks has been there awhile and the second crack finally gave it away. Car is now running smoother than ever and noises are gone. On to the FGMCC Western on Thursday, with a smile!

    My hood sits high in the back.

    Definitely get the core support back to where it needs to be, your fenders will thank you. Here's a good resource on aligning hoods/trunks, MARTINSR has a large collection of posts with sheetmetal basics. https://www.hotrodders.com/forum/how-lower-rear-your-hood-front-your-trunk-alignment-222021.html
  25. Dennis your car is gorgeous and it has had a great 8 years. hopefully it will grace some of the events and you can reconnect.

    Happy Fathers Day

    Sadly, my father passed years ago. I remember the day he went with me to the Chevy dealership to order my new 71 Monte. He is the one who suggested I order it in black. Since I was only 17 the title had to be in his name so I guess I am not the original owner like I thought. I changed to title as soon as I turned 18.
