1. Upgrade the AC in my Rambler.

2. Rebuild a 1974 J-10 pickup. Not exactly a hot rod, just a daily driver. Doing some upgrades, but will be pretty stock appearing. Thinking seriously about a small turbo on the I-6 -- mainly for gas mileage, expect the turbo to max out at 3500 rpm and become a bottle neck at higher rpm. But boost will come in early and be right full on (only 5-7 psi) in the cruising range (2000-2500 rpm). That should be good for power AND add some gas mileage.
