Drophead, yes that is cruising in style.

I opened the back of the Ex to grab a couple parts so I could finish up some stuff on the Wagoneer.


I started the Wag after getting the front clip back on after the motor/trans/t case swap.
It has a pair of 18 inch glass packs on it right now and that's it. Will finish up the exhaust and other little stuff in the next couple weeks.

got my spare changed out. now I have a 315/75/16 spare tire...much better sized than the 265/75/16 that I had sitting in there.

strangely the 35" fits decently. The cover only fits 3/4 of the tire, but I was able to cram the thing into the space with only minimal fuss.

I don't know what it is about an old school V8 with headers and glass packs but it is possibly the best sound for a person to hear in the morning, unless you're the neighbor of the guy and it is 3 am. Lol
Love it!!

Finally changed the front & rear diff oil and installed my Ford Aluminum cover yesterday. God only knows how long it's been since it was last changed. ( according to carfax, I'm owner #8 ) although it smelled so bad it made my girlfriend puke! (Added bonus!!) the front fill plug was previously tightened by Thor himself! I swear it had to have been at least 200ftlbs!! I had to remove the cover and vice grip it against a rear frame bolt on my semi truck and use a breaker bar along with roasting it alive with a torch before it broke loose...I used Lube Locker gaskets and they worked perfect! No monkeying around with permatex or waiting to dry etc.. Torqued it to specs and filled 'em up. No leaks no fuss! Awesome products and thanks to whoever turned me on to them!



Of course they were filled with Schaeffers oil! 3.5 bottles of this filled the rear perfectly!

Is that going to be your "winter beater" or just a hobby vehicle?

Very cool either way.

I love the way you think! I had a nasty 383 stroker with headers that was pure sex when started up. Miss those old beasts and their noise

Yup! My Mother bought me my first car, a 1979 Trans -Am brand new. Gave it to me when I was 16.. It's got the 403 Olds in it, but even after all these years ( yes, I still have it and I'm 42 ) I still get a chubby firing it up and listen to it rumble

The day we brought it home ( in the winter! )

Eagle eyes on ebay, shipping was quick, s
lights came with the wiring harness so no splicing required, directions on what to trim were ok ,but I had to trim more than the instructions stated. Doing it over again I would just get a header panel from an 05 to match.
