I sure know what you mean. I've heard this same argument over and over
for years, but I haven't run into it myself on any of my own "older
vehicles" or any customers cars.
Just dumb luck or what ? Tore my 68 390 down and it looked great for the
age and mileage, and it hadn't seen Lead in years. Same way with a recent
351w. But when I got the heads done, I went ahead and had hard seats put
in. It can't hurt, it was only about $80 more. Later, Phil 64 F-100

Well all, just thought I'd pass along some fun I've been having. After
predictions of 1-3 and 2-4 inches of snow, I was of course skeptical at
best. Its still snowing a bit off and on and we have over 4" pretty easily
:) Nice wet thick stuff :)

Had to run some errands around lunch time and decided to head out with a
friend in a Jeep, so you can imagine our 2 full size vehicles (his is a
Grand Wagoneer) plowing through the back streets ... we went and visited a
park with a huge hill just to see what was up and found some parking space
to try out the new tires and new motor (he's got the new tires, I've got the
new motor :)

It was quite fun, though my lack of fuel prevented me from any donuts or
anything, no traction in the rear at all ... so while he showed off with his
donuts I was able to just spin at least 3 from a dead stop, something he was
unable to do, at least not for quite the distance I was ...

We then had some fun with some un-travelled roads and pretty much concluded
the fun with a trip to the fuel station and finally back to the parking lot.

Maybe after work we can sneak in a bit more, but at any rate it was a blast
:) No more of those rice burners or muscle cars pickin on me today :)

Just my $.02

96 Mustang GT 5spd 4.6L
73ish 1/2ton 4x4 6.4L
