Now this is what hot rodding is all about. Trees came down out of the Smokey's all the way to Nashville, just to stretch his legs, offer some tips, and most of all administer a shot of adrenaline.
After spending an hour or so checking out his ride and my project, we took a little ride out I40. On the return he was gracious enough to give me the wheel. As I slide behind the wheel, buckled in, and scanned the gauges, the juices began to flow. I lift my foot from the brake and the little 327 gently pulled away on it's on. As I ever so lightly pressed the accelerator, I realized the power to weight ratio was something to envy. My heart beat was way ahead of the tac....At a comfortable 70, we were only turning 2000rpm. Wow what an experience....We had lunch and got to know each other a little...Back to the house for some pictures and last words of wisdom before Trees headed home.
What a day...one that I will never forget. Loads of information, a ride and a drive, and best of all a new friend....Trees is a true rodder, with two rods combining for over 350,000 miles he defines daily driver. Hang in there Trees, your the greatest.
