Hi All,

Had been looking for a '71 - '72 Roadrunner for a few months but couldn't find a car that was in my budget and/or near my guy on the ground in the US.

Ended up showing this to the Misses and she liked it, guess what I have just bought then!!!




Can has already been picked up and is in Merced CA.

Brakes already checked for Asbestos and all good.

Have also asked guy over there to order me a heap of MSD crap!

MSD Atomic EFI Master kit &
Matching..
MSD Ready to run Dizzy
MSD Blaster SS coil &
MSD Ignition leads.

Will get a quote to fit over there as it may be a tad cheaper than my guy here.


Finally have an American car!

Not what I was after but still pretty happy!

Am going through Luke at ClassicUSA imports.
Have a friend who brings in ol' F trucks as has passed on all his contacts.
