I should have bought this crusty hood, was for sale in the South suburbs. This is what I'm looking for.

-5.3 LM7, stock for for now but picked up an LC9 (gen 4 aluminum 5.3) which I have over at Fast Times for forged rods/pistons/crank.
-Stock 799 heads, BTR 660 springs
-Baker Engineering cam, hydraulic
-Holley Hi Ram intake
-Holley Smart coils
-Holley 160 lb injectors
-Shearer a/a intercooler
-Holley Dominator ECU
-FI BW S485/96, bill wheel
-2 fuel pumps, O44 for light cruising and small boost, and Weldon 2345A for big boost


Yep I’m aware of you and Tony and the success you guys had with tech. I followed your 25.2 formula(??? Going off memory and I’m probably misremembering???) you were building at one time but that was around the time I got back into 1st gens and never looked back. Went to several shootouts at beech bend and Memphis back in the early & mid 2000’s. Sounds like a nice setup. Good luck with finding a hood/scoop.

I sold my '98 Formula back around 2009, got converted to BBC + N20 and got wrecked maybe totaled not sure if the tub got saved.

Before 'Tech I had muscle cars, and when I wanted to go fast again I looked for a 1st gen Camaro that I could modify and that wasn't worth putting back to stock. This '67 from what I can tell has been cut up since the 80s.

I have one lead on a hood, checking to see if it's bolt-on (that's what I need) or pin-on.

I know it's going to happen but I hate to see it. There is a lot of work and money put into those cars.

Eh the wrecked red one I don't own anymore, and that '69 I only pictured because the guy is selling the hood.. But it's pin-on won't work for me.

Still on the hunt fo a bolt-on version of the above hood. I might paint or wrap the car a vintage color.

The Hairy Banana has had it's wiring gone over, Jay fixed a bunch of stuff, and now it's going to the dyno.

'67 is finally a solid driver, hit up a little car show in Norridge (Chicago) last weekend.

Ended up driving the '67 about 4 hours this past weekend, I might try to run Drag Week next year. I also decided I'll try the local Pro E85 8.90 index class next year. I need to settle on a wheel / tire combo for that. Since they mostly run big tire slicks, I'm thinkin some sort of 29.5 that fits on a 15x14 or 15x15.

I've been hitting it with 14-15 psi, so about 700-800 hp right now.

My punch list went from 0 back to 10 things again.
-swap to different ladder bars
-swap to 295/65 DRs in back
-bolt on side mirrors
-buy rivnut kit
-change wg springs to 7 lb ones
-figure out what lb springs to run in back for the coil overs

Maybe mine is a day 11 build lol?

I have 7 hours of drive time in the car without issue. Have the car over with a buddy, I needed him to weld a new track locater, I swapped to rod end ladder bars.

I still would love to source some older wheels and a different hood, I like the older 70s look but I can't find a hood.

So recent changes are swapped to 295/65/15 MTs in back, swapped on rod end ladder bars.
