Found a 64 license plate on eBay for the Malibu front bumper, these are very hard to find as most of the year they only sold the little metal corner tab to cover up the 63 plate

You can register and run that plate on the rear of the car.

I thought I had heard that before, that's actually pretty cool idea. But I like my personalized plate much better  8)

It's $35 and never expires. Hagerty gives a discount for that as well.  Can't be done at S.O.C.   You can get a form on their website. If you want, call me.

Putting the blue car in winter storage tomorrow. It needs tires badly and all my funds are tied up in the Malibu build right now so it can wait until April  8)

We took the Pervertible up to J.P. to get some much needed work done.  I'm waiting for a call from the guy delivering Dave's '66 Mustang from Texas.

yes. All 4 cats are still intact. Gets a little loud when past 50% throttle. Otherwise not to bad at all.. Cold starts are pretty loud for about 2 to 3 minutes.

Could always put a MIDAS muffler on it.

Yes..... But then I would be labeled.... [lol]

My current job doesn't allow "Midas" mufflers.  Could use anything else though.. I was thinking a stainless Xcelerator if I decide to add mufflers back.

 Dave & Patti Visner came by today to pick up the '66 Mustang that he got from Texas. Dave was out of town, so it was delivered here. Nice, solid car. Needs a few things, but runs and looks pretty good.

nice
Why do people say "grow some balls"? Balls are weak and vulnerable, if you want to toughen up, grow a vagina. These things can take a pounding!

I gutted my rear cats and have a set of Magnflow's on it. Off idle up to about 25mph sounds nice, then at cruise it's not much more than stock. Was hoping for a bit more at cruise and full throttle.
