Default Ready to go cruisn' now...

I picked this up over the weekend....Think it'll be alot of fun. This one has a Buick 196 engine in it..should be a little easier on the gas. BUT, miss that thumping of the Chevy V8 that my old one had.

I love it, its a cool ride. And I'm sure you are aware that a positive displacement blower is made for that engine, good mileage and will scoot too.

Thanks! I just ordered me a scoop breather for it. Can't wait to change the current one for it. First cruise night with it is Thursday. Can't wait to show her off.

COOL! I believe it is, I really haven't looked at it that close yet. BOP's are usually similar from what I've heard though.
