alleycat glad to see you are back. I have recently bought a 36 Century that has been in several Great Races in the 2000's. Drove it home from Nashville to Memphis Tennesse a distance of close to 200 miles. The mileage was about 10 mpg. I've been watching E-bay for a 50-52 320 inch motor. After reading some of your post I'm now wondering if a 263 might be better. I really enjoyed you and jyrki's dicussion on the old allycat thread. Back in my foolish youth my daddy had a 50 buick special and if I could get anyone to agree to a 20mph rolling start I was hard to beat. I seem to remember about 55+mph in low gear in the old dynaflow!
