I got them sent to me a while ago. Dont know where he got them from.
Have a few more really cool one's if you want the rest but wont send any more here as they take up a bit of space.
Drop me a email if you want them, and they will be on there way.

my love affair with classics started young.
Family friends had a GTO, uncle had/has a classic porsche (and a few classic Triumph motorcycles, but that's another story)

In high school, I got to drive the '64 Cadillac Coupe DeVille my grandma bought new from the dealer.
That 429 could move that big boat like you wouldn't believe.
Feels like your driving the living room couch.
And plenty of room in the back for extracurricular activities.

(still got the car in the driveway, but it gets less attention now because....)

A couple years ago I bought a 55 Ford TBird.
The first of the birds, and in my opinion, the best looking. Got it from a family friend who gave me a great deal. I am the second owner (unless you count his dad, then I'm 3rd)
This car is great. Not super fast, I think it was rated at 245hp stock.(?) Not too bad for a two-seater.
I'm sure I get more out of it with my 57 intake, Mallory distributor, and Holley 4160.

Soon I'll have even more hp when I get my McCulloch (precursor to Paxton) blower installed.

Hey, GTO, what kind of blower you got in your truck? How much boost?

Hi, Got a 6/71 only run 5psi still a little high in the compression, on a hot day under load a little pinking. Waiting for the 98ron petrol to come down south that will make it better. The 55-57 T Bird are a great classic. Hope you have lower compression for your blower it's better to run lower compression and higher boost. I have been to lazy to put the lower compression heads on.

oh jesus, you got a real blower!
one of them big ol' hood scoop deals.
sweet. that' one chevy I don't want to see pull up next to me at a stop light.

the blower I got is rated at 5 or 6 psi.
it's the vs57... wild WWII technology.
it's body looks similar to i think paxton sn96 (or something)



my heads are 8.5:1, guys tell me that's about the limit. I'm sure i'll find out...eventually.

take care


for anyone interested, check out www.vs57.com for too much info about these old superchargers.

Hi, The truck has lots of room in there, got the blower in without cutting the hood so she is a surprise pack at the lights. 8.5 is a great ratio for a blower. The vs57 looks good, will suit a classic car.
