  7. I was in the Ford River Rouge Mustang assembly plant in 2000 on the day they built the 300 Cobra R Mustangs. The first few units maybe cars 1-15 or so had the engine literally shoved through their hoods. The way the assembly line worked was the engine sat on a lift and the car body moved over top. When the two were lined up the engine raised up from the bottom. The issue was the Cobra R engine was much bigger and something was causing a misalignment. So the hoods were pushed up and destroyed. The fix was to remove the hoods on the remaining cars and install them at the end of the line. I think everyone of those cars did a burn out from the end of the assembly line onto the chassis alignment rig. It was a circus atmosphere that day for sure.

  12. Gary, Great looking Buick! I believe the carb is a Stromberg I will have to look at the model number. The speedometer cable smoothly travels down between the bell housing and number 4 cylinder and then continues under the car. No tight bends at all. Working well. I will be at old car fest with my 12 Mitchell. Thanks for the comments. Andy
  13. Mark, Thank you for the offer. Andy

    That's why it is still a free country. If you have the means why not. Maybe it will go to a multimillionaire with a one car garage.
