Jeephunter89 - Thanx. I was afraid I was the only one with automotive dementia, now I know I'm not.
Things like my big block ZJ dream happen when you start doing convoluted math like this:
What I own + What I want to drive + What I can afford = X?
X is usually something that by all rights should not exist in the first place.
That's how my Mom's 318 2BBL Y block 65 Fury III four door ended up having a 413 4BBL Holley, electronic ignition, magnum exhaust manifolds from a Road Runner and 2 1/2 dual exhaust with Imperial mufflers. (Still had the original color matched steel wheels and dog dish hubcaps, one hell of a sleeper!)
Hogweed - As far as the 5spd swap, I'll race you to the install.
I bet I can finish mine in two years and four months, that's way quicker than three years.... sorta!
Clock doesn't start running til I get off the couch though. That should be any time now.
Yup, any time now............. :-)
Thanks for all the replies folks - JC
