Default GTO walk around & start up

Recorded sound is "muffled" in the shop at ECS but it sounds absolutely wicked.

Lots of work went into this one and the walk around just doesn't do justice to all the little details. New wiring, fab work, every hydraulic line replaced etc etc.

Gotta LOVE IT!!!! DeJaVUE all over again.....back in 90-92 when I put DPFI on my '70 Lemans Convertible 462 /400 Chevelle 12 bolt disc brakes in front,

it was called 'Injected Madness' in Feb '95 of High Perf Pontiac Mag.....

Your car is a later version and surely much better......where you live?? I gotta steal that car one night leave tire marks to my garage.....

A buddy across the river has a '68 goat about that color in his garage, but it's all basically stock, not a full on resto, but damn close....but it's been setting forever now, and sadly, it shows.....the usual $$ T&E......

Anytime you're up. I was going to do the Hot Rod Power Tour this year but a major business partner moved meetings to the middle of the tour.

I would've been at the bottom of NC but still far from your crib.

You gotta get up this way sometime, it's your turn.
We do killer July 4th parties.

Yeah I remember you telling me about your '70. Wish you still had her.

I'm in PA an hour from NYC and Philly, your sore back would act up and stop you before you crossed the MD line.
