Here's the last pics. The trunk has plenty of bondo in each rear corner, is there supposed to be a trunk pad in there? Anyways, I like the Goodyear Polyglas spare. Why don't tires have cool names anymore? Why aren't "red line" or "red stripe" tires fashionable anymore?

I think the respray color is a ford color, maybe 1965. It's been a while since I have discussed the car with my (step)dad since we disagree on everything and so I usually prefer to avoid him.

My (step)grandma is the same way. She says if I put a different engine in the car, it won't be the same.

That's the point. I don't want a smog-era 360 with a Holley and a bunch of free-mods. I want an AMC 360 (a 390 or 401 would be a nice swap but they aren't cheap) with modern parts to maximize performance, streetability, and efficency. Same with the brakes and handling.

But I will probably go with an intake, cam, and headers for the meantime. When will the money come, when will the money come...

more pics. here's the MC and booster... brake fluid "mysteriously" dissapears. I think a hole in the booster diaphram is the culprit since there's no fluid all over the floor inside the car. The oddball pic is under the MC, annd shows rust under there. On the other side of the car, it's pretty clean as far as rust goes. What was mounted where the 2 screw holes are?

Why can't we add more than 3 pictures when ya update this? Otherwise, I like this feature A LOT!

I went back to my (step)grandma's place for a family gathering and fired it up for those who a)remember its better days and b) like it.

I also took some pics to show the severity (how severe it is) of the rust damage, the original color and the respray circa before I knew my (step)dad and today's uopdate also features a radiator leak.

more pics. 220HP 360v8, removed air pump, air cleaner housing, added holley carb with mechanical secondaries. Dad says it bogs down really bad when ya floor it off the line. In the forums here it says stuff about that being some sort of "pump cam", whatever that is.

Summer 2004:
This is in my (adopted)grandma's pole barn. My (adopted) dad got this new back in 1974. He thinks he should've gotten the ecomomy gears. I'm glad he didn't.
