  2. I use these also my son in-law has the crimping tool specifically for spark plug wires
  3. We had mid 80's here in Central Indiana good day for mowing the yard and more work in the yard shed.
  4. The red one sold for $30,000 being a small block 9K less than the SS
  5. We had our Eastern Meet at Norwalk a few years ago. Was a very good time and only 6 hours form my house.
  6. I put four rebuilt pressure plates in my 61 Impala in six weeks so I never again used a rebuild always new heavy duty. I got mine at Norm Day's Speed Shop in Middletown IN back in 1967. He was a drag racer that was very successful here in the Midwest. That was the last clutch I ever had to buy
  7. The red one was a beautiful car. At least it looked really good on TV
  8. My carpeting with mass backing went over my Dynamat clone without any problem. It was the very same as Dynamat but about half the cost. Eastwood also sells a similar product that works well plus there are others. When I took the interior out of my 72 it had that bubble pack foil backed insulation under the carpet but did not do much. The floor was hot over the exhaust and the noise level was terrible. Now the floor is almost cool to bare feet and we had to have the radio set at 22 on the radio dial now we can have a normal conversation and the radio is only on the 9 to 11 setting according to what songs are playing the louder we set is for the songs we really like like the Doors Rider on the Storm, anything from Chicago plus a few others.
  9. I have never seen a plug in a console with 8 wires
  10. Those look like the console plugs for my floor shift
  11. I had my headers Ceramic Coated and painted the engine while the headers were out
  12. I used the POR 15 Chevy red on my 72 when I had it rebuilt a few years ago and it still looks great. I have yet to run across a POR 15 product that I have not liked
  13. My Sniper is polished, they also come black and I think natural pot metal
  14. I heard that Cory Mohlman(CJ) sold his Monte but not sure and have not seen Murphy(Murray Rheder) in quite a while either.
  15. On the rear pc. on my 72 I had Murphy out west polish mine then I clear coated it with a Por15 product. It looks good to me but could be better. Then a couple of years ago I put a dent into it putting something in the trunk now I am going to have to straighten it or find someone to do it which is the better idea cause I remember now the last pc. I STRAIGHTENED NOT.
  16. If I remember correctly all the tubes for the jacks for shovelles and Montes are the same but the bumper part is different
  17. Here is what I found not a one pc but front and rear sections https://www.thepartsplaceinc.com/interactive-catalog#book/page/282-283
  18. But I did post a pix of the trophy LOL LOL LOL so it did happen I THINK
  19. Does that mean it’s not really your trophy? No I am pretty sure they wanted me to have it they came back and looked at the car several times just like two years ago when they gave the 72 the Lions Choice Award. Multiple inspections and after the show in 2019 one of the Lions Club Members came and told me he lobbied hard for m car to get the Lions Choice award.
  20. I got to talking to a lot of people and forgot to take any photos as usual
  21. Went to the Zionsville Fall Festival Car Show today. 102 cars registered and only First Gen there. Received Best Paint award

    72 spare tire

    I always have my spare match what is on the ground at the present time when I have a spare that is
  23. Back when our cars were built paining everything at one time, at least to me, was crucial but with the base clear of today it is an advantage but I have seen many cars painted apart and the put together and they have come out great. Technology has come a long way since our cars were built and the systems used today are so much better than in bygone days, I try to think positive in all thing car related and not worry about what I cannot control
