Smile Sam's car...

I don't see what the big deal is...it's just a really nice, super clean, highly detailed, 4 speed, L78 Chevelle...oh, and it's black.

Other than that it's just a Chevy

Beautiful car owned by a great 'car guy'.

Well, my list keeps getting longer;

1. Invent something to make me millions!
2. Own my own Island get-a-way
3. Usurp Bob as head of MCACN
4. Steak Sam’s shifter boot bracket idea

I think that about sums it up!!! Nice work Sam! Man I can’t wait to see this car and between you and “Philvelle” as I call him, I’m diggin’ these cars!!

Cheers

Dave

Thanks a bunch guys! Sunday I had a nice clear, crisp, sunny (cold) day to exercise the Chevelle and, more importantly, enough rain lately to wash the roads of that pesky salt. She ran real strong and seemed to like the 30 deg. weather. Took Lori along and she was impressed with the car's grunt (just 1/2 throttle). These are break-in miles as last fall I pulled the engine and asked Eric to go through it to make sure all was in order. All looked good except for the front main bearings which were beginning to show some scoring. This most likely as a result of the car's drag racing days and the resulting momentary starvation of oil flow toward the front of the crankshaft from repeated hard launches . Everything else looked good. So, a replacement of the bearings, a crank polishing, new rings and a light hone of the original bore and all of the original rotating assembly was put back together. Original valve springs were replaced for obvious reasons. So it will be a couple hundred more miles before I can really get on it but, all indications are that she is VERY healthy! Here is a short clip from the backend to let you hear what the newly refreshed insides sound like! (please excuse my crooked exhaust tips as I have a bit more massaging to do there). Enjoy! (Thanks to Bruce, Jody, and “the computer guy” for their persistence in getting the Youtube video posting feature to work again)

Love it! I'd love to find a set of front runner cragars for my 67 Chevelle which has the same paint and interior colors as your 69

Bill,

Yes, thru Gardner, but the mufflers are their free-er flowing version (can't remember what they call it) that has bit louder/deeper tone. Outside appearance is OEM-like but there are fewer baffles inside. BTW, these Super Scavengers are pretty tame loudness-wise until you get on it a bit and then the volume and quality of sound goes way up!

Cheers
