    Safely loading SLC onto flatbed or trailer?

    A caution there as well: Loading the car 'rear first' means the OVERHANG (chin spoiler) protruding ahead of the front wheels/tires will then be at the BACK of the vehicle...which will likely cause the 'chin spoiler' to be dragged on the ground in the 'loading' process! IOW, when loading the car...

    Safely loading SLC onto flatbed or trailer?

    I'd go with the tow hook myself because its location ought to have been designed to minimize/eliminate tow-line-to-body contact/damage, but, here's a suggestion for your 'do-this-anyway' file regardless of what loading attachment point you may settle upon OR what kind of tow vehicle you may get...

    109 For Sale

    'Notice the LENGTH of the write up on it? For cars that are expected to bring in gadzillions of dollars, that's pretty much a mandatory prerequisite. The MORE any given vehicle is expected to bring in - the LONGER the write up/sales pitch describing it. Basically, there seems to be some formula...

    Switching to Electronic Ignition

    Obviously you never drove my V8-equipped '72 Ranchero! But, getting back on topic: Marcus, Are you wanting to just convert your existing distributor from points & condenser to a module setup, or convert the whole ignition system over to an entire "black box" system? 'Not clear to me from what...

    Braided Hoses Throughout!!

    There's another reason for using hard lines vs. braided whenever possible...although a totally inconsequential one safety/performance-wise: braided lines are a BEAR to clean. :mad: 'Just sayin'...

    Superformance to build replica of 2005 Shelby "GR-1" concept car...

    Using the word "replica" takes up less headline space than "build a production version of the concept car"...which is why I used it! ;-)

    Vacuum pumps.

    I hadn't even considered that 'cause mine is 'street use' only...but, I'm sure you're 100% correct.

    GT40 For Weekend Cruiser

    Only problem with the Pantera option is finding a GOOD one that's been properly restored...no rust issues...electrical gremlins...proper updates... blah, blah, blah. As you know, I've looked for one for quite a while my own darned self...'but have given up...

    Vacuum pumps.

    Haven't driven the hot rod since late last August, but, when I put it in storage, the Bandit still performed as stated in post #22; to wit: Quiet as a mouse whether one's inside or outside the vehicle - engine running or not (one really DOES need to 'pay attention' to hear it)....Vac is always...

    Ditto...hence my query to Allen regarding same. A '40's 'glass is 'race-light' (so to speak)...'not really intended/designed to bear dead weight...not to mention weight that's battling 'high winds' when the car's traveling 'at speed'. Regardless, Allen's car evidentially isn't having problems.
