    1975 Mustang 2 Ghia. I think I heard somewhere it was the worst of the Mustang years... I didn't care though, I was 17 and had me a Mustang with a 302! 1976_00029_01.jpeg

    My cousin just sent me a text yesterday and said “your old car”... sold it to one of his friends a long time ago and this is how it looks now. It has a 351 in it he took the 289 out and painted it red. 942ADA9E-31BA-4ACE-986A-A72A583D0700.jpeg FB5DA4FD-748B-4EE9-ACE7-9073F2839BD2.jpeg

    Looks great. I’d have left the 289 in for nostalgia but I wouldn’t complain about a 351 either. Lol

    Yeah. It’d be worth more restored to OEM but everyone has their thing.

    I like the combo of 289 heads and cam paired with a flat-top 302 block. Makes for a fun, snappy little engine and most people could never tell the difference from a factory 289 without looking very closely or looking at numbers. 302 has a 4 bolt crank pulley and 289 has 3 bolts. Built a few for guys who wanted a factory appearance and sound but a few more ponies in their ponies and didn't care about numbers matching. Haha

    1970 Chevelle. My older brother gave it to me for Christmas. The engine was shot so I had to rebuilt it, but I wasnt going to complain. IMG_20171125_163647926.jpeg

    It was a regular Impala. Caprice was an upscale Impala but was 2 door only.
    Fun fact: 60s Bel Airs were basically the previous years Impalas downscaled trim, tail lights, etc. 66 Bel Air=65 Impala.

    My dad had a 67 Caprice. 327, 4 bbl, TH350. Kicking that Quadrajet in sounded like flushing the toilet and I swear the car bogged before it got it’s gitty-up.
