Those old Holley 2 x 4's still look like new and ran great all last year.  I'm bringing the car out of hibernation this Sunday and expect more of the same this year.

+1  Courier brokerage fees + customs + taxes can be stupid expensive.  Use USPS with insurance and tracking if at all possible. 

Insurance value can be different / more than the declared value of the declared service provided.  That was the case when I had my carb restored in the US. 

My understanding is that what is supposed to be declared is the value of the restoration service vs the value of the restored carb.  Makes no sense to tax someone for something that is theirs.  I've had parts restored in the US and sent back to Canada, and the value of the restoration work only was declared, and I have never had an issue.  Whether tax or import fees are actually payable usually depends on the shipping service.  Always if a courier is used / not usually for USPS Priority (my experience).

That vin has several hits on google.  Neither the current listings or the 2012 Mecum auction info state that the engine is original to the car.  That would suggest to me that it isn't.  If original, that is typically highlighted given how important that is to many buyers.

If the headlight flashing was occasional, not regular, check the plug for the headlights where it goes into the firewall to make sure it is tight and clean.  That was the problem when my headlights acted up several years ago.

Found this online.  Is it correct for the vintage shocks under discussion? 

Rebound Adjustment Procedures

Remove the shock absorber from the vehicle and hold it vertically with the lower eye or pin attached in a vise. Use clamp plates to prevent damage.
Fully collapse the shock absorber, at the same time turning the dust cap or piston rod slowly to the left (counterclockwise), until it is felt that the cams of the adjustment nut engage in the recesses of the foot valve assembly.
Some shock absorbers include a bump rubber concealed under the dust cover and it must be removed prior to adjusting.
The damper may have already been adjusted. Therefore check whether the shock absorber is in the adjustment position or not by keeping it collapsed and gently turning it further to the left counting at the same time the half turns until a stop is felt. Stop turning then and do not use force.
Keeping the shock absorber collapsed, make 1 half turn (180 degrees) to the right (clockwise). In case of prior adjustment add the number of half the turns previously found. The total range is about 5 half turns.
Pull the shock absorber out vertically without turning for at least 1 cm to disengage the adjusting mechanism. The dust cap or piston rod may now be turned freely.

Sent you a PM

Meant to say hard to believe a 62 AC Cobra with a 260 was 3/10ths of a second faster than a 66 427 Cobra.  What say you Cobra guys ??

Is it just me that finds it hard to believe a 62 AC Cobra with a 260 in it was only 3 tenths of a second slower in the 1/4 mile than a 66 427 Cobra ??  Yes, the 62 was lighter, but the math does not seem to make sense.
