Infinite Monkeys is on a distinguished road
Default My latest project

it's a 1960 Thunderbird with a 390 and COM. I picked it up about 2 months ago from a guy in Santa Fe, NM. He's had it since 1980. He had the engine and trany rebuilt in '90, drove it for about 9k miles and then parked it. So it sat since, (outside) till I just got it.
I've put a 100% new braking system in it, including hard and soft lines, pads, wheel cylinders, dual piston master cylinder and dual diaphragm booster.
New electronic ignition and the usual tune up, including a new carb.
I've also put in a new hard line from the tank to fuel pump. Fuel pump is also new.
I've driven it about 50 miles so far and it runs great. I've done several full throttle pulls and the engine and trany were perfect.

There are lot of issues still remaining and I'll be working on those in the time to come.
Just had a great talk with Ray, he pointed me the right direction to get things done.
Also, I do all my own work.

Well, I tried to add some pictures, but looks like I can't just attach them. Do I need to have photobucket account to post pics here?

Thanks.
