What I mean is that it's impressive how sane and reasonable the predictions in that article were, as compared to the more usual fodder full of outlandish BS like "we'll all have personal jetpacks, bigotry and hatred will be abolished, and Chrysler will be producing cars that people actually want to buy."

It was an original Go-Pack car, but had a complete frame-off and was running a 390 from a 70 AMX, which had the better heads. It had a slight overbore, compression bump, and a pretty hot cam. Edelbrock sent us their first prototype RPM gap manifold to test. 750 double pumper with mech. secondaries. 4 speed Muncie rock-crusher. It ran as good as it looked.

Wow, that is cool. I actually have owned one of these since I was a much younger man. She's still tucked away in a garage. She basically sits there, waiting for me, taunting me, egging me on to dump large sums of money into her... AGAIN! Like your dad's, mine is a '68 390 Go-pack car, auto, Matador red with the skunk stripes. It ran when it was parked, but was suffering. I put my heart and soul into that damn car when I was little more than a kid and that bitch broke me. Maybe I'm just punishing her back at this point.

I confess to having fantasies of dropping an LS3 into her. Ah, WTH, I can still dream can't I? .

Thou art correct. Washington (state), Arkansas, Colorado, and Illinois are all repeated in the list, improperly sorted, and incorrectly shaded. Martha Fokkers...




I've been searching for a picture of Frank Lloyd Wright with a pancake on his head, but nothing's coming up...

I've been to FLW's house. If you're lucky I'll find a picture of it for this thread.

A co-worker of mine owned a home back in Cincinnati which was designed by a student of FLW, in a style similar to that of the Boulter House.




I wish I could remember the name of it, or find some photos. Someday I want to build a copy of that house.
