    Messed with the '75 today with this great weather. Got it running a lot better (Vac leaks and some timing). Now just have a hick-up when I first crack the throttle, just have to feather it past that and it runs up great. Now just some insurance on it and I'll be ready to come by for the meet. I'll swap out the '70 and '75 between Show Low and Glendale right after that to start the 302 swap into the '75. Need to pull a couple parts off the '75 engine (fan, pulleys and electronic ignition distributor) onto the '70 and the '70 should be road ready. If anyone is looking for a 1975 200/C4 it will be available right after our meet, cheap.

    For lack of a better place and since December 2nd is just around the corner...how about we meet back at the Park Central lot where we met a few years ago. It's centrally located and easy access with lots of room.

    The 2nd should work. I have another car gathering on the 9th so hopefully it dosnt rain.

    I finally gave up charging the battery in my Maverick. Went and bought a new one. Also paid for tags and insurance for a year so legal and road ready for first time in 2 years. Even drove it to work today.... Shhhh dont tell the insurance company.
