Hey Terry, I nearly said it was a tuff looking 68, but think that is best reserved for Marty,
Very nice though

That's gotta be one cranky SBC Terry! Sweet. What's your rear suspension setup for that height? Reset leaves / blacks / both? Ta!

Geez, are my comments that predictable

What colour is that Terry, is it just my screen or does it look dark blue in a couple of those pics. First glance i thought it was black but not sure now ?

If it's dark blue - Awesome ride
If it's black - Tuff ride

new big dollar small block sounds interesting....

The colour of her is metalic dark blue almost black (marty) with white stripes we love the colour one minute it looks black the next its dark blue.We get alot of comments on the paint and we have won 3 trophys for our car we are so stoked. The motor started life as a stocked standed 350 but now its pretty much a 400. The motor was built by Geoff Hayse race engines.

The motor has speed flow forged flat top pistons, forged steel crank I beam rods, full ARP bolt kit, solid cam with 1.6 roller rockers, rollmaster timing chain kit,O ring head gaskets, high volume oil pump, little chief Dart pro 1 alloy race heads with brodix rocker covers with twin jazz catch cans,victor junior manifold, brand new twin 3 inch mandrel pipes and mercury race mufflers,if i have left anything out sorry guys.

MSD 6al2 ignition, B&M tranny cooler with its own thermo fan, AED 950ho series carby, hooker headers, K&N filters (oil and air ) we tried to hide most of the wiring when the old motor was out also we had the engine bay sprayed the same colour as the car. We also have 2 inch drop spindles in the front and 2 inch lowering blocks in the rear for now untill we get the rear leaves done. All in all we are so happy how everything worked out took some time and alot of dollars but we are stoked, its a bit wild for the street but she makes us grin from ear to ear every time we drive our baby. she is in the panel shop at the moment getting some work done her but when we get her back i will get some video footage on how she sounds. anyway thanks guys for all your great comments it makes it all worth it.

TERRY
