Welcome to the Rat Pack...

Now, if I can influence you any, what do you think about building a clone to my car only in yellow with T-tops. So, if we ever hook up on the Hot Rod power tour, or other such events when you bring it to the states, we can scare large crowds of people in a single thrashing of the throttles!

HEY MY Way!!!

That sounds pretty cool I have a lot of BIG BLOCK questions.
#1 is how do you like the ride w/ the VB&P set up that you have ?

A lot of people have told me that I wont like a big block it's hot, it's heavy, it puts the car off balance, being a Marine for quite sometime and one who left aircraft in the middle of the night at very low heights and some times over water for a nice long FIN I love things that are a bit extereme. :_rock so hook me up with the BB scoop,skinny, low down. I do belive I will go War Bonnett Yelloow, w/ blk comfort weave interior, and all sorts of NON STOCK goodies,I want a 69 body w/ 2003 running gear, etc...

I put as much aluminum as possible on my bb including heads, intake, water pump, accesories, etc. I don't see any problem with the extra weight.

I have the VB&P one step off the most aggressive setting. It is firm, and harsh at times, but forgiving. As I am just now really breaking the car in (emphasis on breaking), I don't have a full report for you on the whole package.

I will keep you guys updated.
