    My brother bought himself a hot rod, He talked me into riding with him, boy was that a mistake! He got down on the gas and was running 150 in a matter of seconds. I had to change my pants when I got back to his house, those Louisiana guys are crazy!!

    Sounds like a fun time to me. The big question is. Did you get any on his seats?

    A friend of mine has been working on a 70 Cuda 440 6 pack for several years. His goal is to have it done by Thanksgiving this year. Last time I talked to him 3 weeks ago it was complete and the motor and transmission ( all numbers match) was ready to go in. The rest of the car was complete with a ground up restoration which included all new floor pans. It originally belonged to his bil when it was new. Can't wait to go for a ride in it. I'll post some pics when I can. Post us some up Top!!
