Now I know where "Uncle Buck's" giant pancake flipper went!!!!

Ford used "Cobra" on a lot of cars and parts.  Remember there was a Mustang Cobra II.   I once was told about some "Cobra" parts and found they were off a Cobra II Mustang.

The tailshaft C9OR-7A040-A, according to David Kee Toploaders, is a 1969 and up Cyclone/Torino/Rancharo.

Main case looks like C8AR-7006-D.  Shows to be a 1968 and up.

^^ Reminds me of a guy I knew in high school who argued that his car was faster in the 1/4 mile with the hood off, because of less weight and more airflow to the carburetor.

Others of us in the group said it would actually be slower in trap speed because of the wind resistance. 

This all took place one rainy Sunday, with no chance to get to the track and see.  By the following weekend, after he had to drive his hoodless car in the rain for 5 days, he'd put the hood back on. a stock 289 Mustang: Would 50 pounds (or whatever the hood weighs) less weight and more airflow (assuming more air actually gets to the carb and doesn't just cause engine compartment turbulence) beat the resulting increase in wind resistance? 

I realize that wind resistance is not much of the equation until 50+ mph. So, in 0-50 mph, maybe it would/could be quicker by a few hundredths.


Wait until the kid with the 2 foot tall spoiler bolted on the back of the 4-door Corolla see's this........

I also wonder what fuel pump are you using? 
What is the pressure being delivered to those fuel lines?  (check the output side of the fuel pump for the pressure).   
I'm wondering about stuck needle and seats in the carbs? (I had one stick close as the car sat in a my hot Texas shop all summer, dried out and the stock system did opposite of yours, it couldn't open the seat and fill the fuel bowl.  There was also an issue with the float.....).

I'd like to think that our elections from 1788 to the present were free and fair. Only when the "Orangeman" lost did it become fashionable to claim massive voter fraud. Now that is the normal behavior for losers.

Let's agree that we love our Shelby and Bosses and leave it at that, as I firmly believe we still have the best process to elect our officials bar none! Throwing out results until it suits your narrative solves nothing. If ever there was an opportunity for election fraud it was 2004. The loser conceded and the process was more important than the individual. Nuff said.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.


There were a few past (100 years and older) elections that were real Stuff-Storms.  Post-Civil-War Reconstruction elections were messy.
But yeah, lets stick with our lovely cars.

IMO, there needs to be on ballots, in every election, a box that reads:  "Check here to throw them all out and start over."

That'd get my vote!
I don't know all the details, but the British Parliament has a "No Confidence" option.....

My memory seems better than I give it credit for......

Garner and McQueen were friends and lived a block or two apart.  Funny stories about them.  Garner like to work in his yard/garden and kept it immaculate.  Some up-the-hill neighbor (McQueen) would clandestinely drive by and toss empty beer cans on Garner's yard in the middle of the night. 
There was a falling out over Gran Prix.  McQueen felt people involved in it "Stole his thunder" about his Le Man project.  But then you read about all the issues with LeMan's......

Shame it's sitting in that salt water.  If it wasn't for that.......

the car has a brief cameo in the movie.  I've not watched it in a bit but I believe Garner drives up and gets out of it.  Perhaps there is a scene with Jessica Walter in it, but I'm real unsure about that. 

Garner was one of several Hollywood types that raced and were pretty good.  He ran Oldsmobiles in some off-road stuff.

I went for a 8.9 mile hike at LBJ National Grasslands.  Even with a hat, I got sun-kissed.  It was great temp wise.  I was geared up in hiking gear.  I layer shirts and thought to remove one after lunch, but never did.  It was about 72 degrees when I finished.  Sadly, every old stock ponds except one was totally dry.  The one just had a bit of water in them.  Drought....  The Forest Service has stock tanks that have well water so animals are all fine The FS wasn't running any cattle on the  grasslands just now.  Saw a few Bow Hunters walking around.  October is Bow deer season here in Texas.  I suspect they were just looking for where they would try late or early in the day as in the middle of the day, the deer are all laying under a tree in the back country, fast asleep.  Even on my back country loop, I didn't see any.  Saw EVIDENCE of a lot of deer and thankfully, the hogs looked like they moved elsewhere. 
Just a great day for a long walk.
