    I think I remember that same look from people when I fired up my 454 with open headers in the housing area. It echoes forever :D

    Totally sweet.
    Good to hear that you got it running.
    I hope to get mine in and running soon.
    I almost cannot wait to watch the neighbors faces when it starts...

    That 454 may be fun, but I would't want to feed the beast at todays gas prices. Seriously, I'm jealous. Wish I had the bucks to dump in my rig but we just finished our basement, soaked up a lot of money. I guess I'll have to be satisfied with my current project. A guy gave me some doors from a '71 pickup that have only surface rust. He tried selling them, but they were basically just shells (no guts) so no takers. I'm trying to figure out how to cut/bend/weld them into something like those fiberglass units we used to see on 70's Bronco's and IH Scouts. Not really half doors, but with a step-through, like a jeep with the doors off. Any one have ideas on how best to do this? By the way, 1st gen. doors are much, much lighter without the innards.

    i don't mind feeding my K5, the reward is way worth it. plus that is why my wife works, to pay my bills hahahaha good thing she doesn't read thease fourms hahahaha IT takes YEARS for me to get were I am now, I too don't have a money tree growing in the backyard. I do have a 'stash pot' in my garage I save money in so all the bills we have don't suck it all up :D
