I think The Monte Carlo but it has more Mods done to it . But I am sure if I ran this Mustang Like I stold it . It would Beat Many Car's on the Street . I only drove the car Home . It has some Nuts alright . The Crazy Guy who last owned it briefly . Took me for a Ride Like he was trying to Kill the Both of us . When he hit 2nd ? around 7 Grand it Burned the Tires real good at left some marks . I will have to uncork them Headers and See how it Sounds and Runs Ha-biggrin Maybe Race a Chevy  biggrin

I hope it runs good too . I really wanted a Holley 600 D/P for this Car . But I did do a Lot of Mod to that 600 V/S . It should Open on demand . If not maybe I will Bolt that Carter 600 back on it . It's all rebuilt in my basement . It's Just that them Holley's Look more at Home up top a Ford Engine  biggrin

Once I install the New Rear Ford Shocks and go over all the Rear Spring Bolts . Then I can take it out . I really would Like to Find a Set of Black Factory Steel Rims . Then I can go with Hub Caps . If not maybe Rally Rims . But yes it's time to Blow off the Dust on this Car nod.gif

No during the Week I real don't get a chance to work on the Hot Rod's . And yesterday Morning I did some Car work . But it was not Planed . My wife took out a Side wall of one of here Front Tires on the way to Visit Her Grand Kid's . So I had to Jump out of Bed to take care of that . $220 Bucks Later and two new Front Tires Her car is good to go . She was surprised I was not more Mad ? I was to Tired to get Mad .

It's really a Nice Clean Car . And has some good Updates done to it . But I am in a Time of my Life that I real Could not say what car I 100% would Like to own . Even if I could have just about any car . That's kind of a bad thing for a car Guy to say . I don't want to Lose my Passion for Hot Rod's Now ? Or I hope Not Ever no

I took the Mustang out for a Ride Tonight Ha-biggrin Heck for a Ford that Joker has some nut's ! I tried to make a Video with My Camera . It's real Scrambled Not Easy trying and Hold the Video Button Down and Steer / Shift the 4-Speed . That Holley needs a Bit Lighter Sec Spring and it was a Little to rich at Idle . I never have Pulled a Spark Plug or checked the Timing . I can Tell it has to much Timing and I am Sure it Could use a Better set of Plugs and Wires . I didn't Delete the Videos from My P.C Yet but it came out in Part Videos . If one of My Buddy's from here was with Me I could Have Made a Good Video . I almost could Not stop that Car at the Stop Sign that was coming up Quickly .

Well I tried to make another Video with My Camera . The 2nd one was a no go no That one I bolted on my Carter AFB 600 . It worked ok ran real smooth . But As soon as that Engine Heated up ! No go no Lots of Vapor Lock and it Died out had to Push the car back into my Driveway . Next I tried out a Box Stock Holley 600 V/S No go Leaking Fuel from one of the Plugs Holley used to Block off the Float adjustments on their Newer 600 CFM V/S Carbs . So back to the Holley I built for this Car . I first built that 600 V/S Carb for jrots Truck . But when he did get His Carb working . I took it back apart and Jetted it for my Mustang . I really need to Buy that Quick Change Sec Spring Housing for it . So I can Dial it in Better . But this Time I reinstalled that Holley with a Heat Shield under it . I did not want to take a chance with any more Vapor Locking . It's 80-degs still at 2.00 A.M . Well I have to say that Old Rebuilt Pieced together Holley works the Best . After I do the Tune up I will do more fine tuning to that Carb . I took 2-deg out of the Timing it was to far advanced . And I still might have a Little Bit of old Fuel in that Tank . This car is Faster then I thought it would be biggrin One of the Next Mods if I keep it is a 3.90 Gear . But the Way it's Set up now . It's a Good Street car . Oh the Guy who owned this car before me . Installed some Small Red Lights inside near the Floor that come on with the Lights . Most Likely I will remove them Later on .

I pulled these High Dollar Bosch Platinum Spark Plugs out . 4 of them where Less then Hand Tight ? Not Sure what Heat Range they are . Lot's of #s on them . I will have to Look them up . I am much Happier with the Autolite Brand Spark Plugs . I also went over all the Valve Cover and Header Bolts .
