If you were I was just going to apologize for not being there on Saturday like I said.  Had a minor emergency and had to head back to MS first thing Saturday morning.

Congratulations on the sale at Barrett-Jackson a couple of weeks ago - sharp looking car.
 
Were you the gentleman who was so interested in the cam that was used in my Kaase crate Boss466 [the yellow 70 Merc. Cyclone GT in the VIP parking]?

Nice ride. Is that a pewter metallic paint job? Also, did you have to use custom headers to clear the clutch linkage?

Thanks Ian. My orginal carpet is not bad, but over there years the loops have come apart. I'd only replace it if it looks exactly as original.

Vince, you can get the ACC carpet through a couple of vendors and it's practically a perfect match.
I have one for my car.
Some of the clors may not be available though. The Yellow '73 I have here for some work has the ginger interior and I can the carpet but not the proper color foot pads.

  600 hundred makes sense to keep it streetable. most cases those pics would speak for themselves, but I would like more details on the setup or future setup if it's not done. she is a beautyClap

tom had emailed me the dyno numbers sometime back but i cant find that email.  I went searching thru all my email files AND facebook messaging.  it did have aluminum rods and thsoe were changed out.  i want to say the hp number was in the 600 range. thats what sticks in my mind at least.  i do believe its an original boss 9 but cant say 100%.  I CAN tell you this, Tom is a HELLUVA good guy!

Amazing car! Post more pics and tell us about the build.

Is that a repro carpete or original in the car. If it's a repro, where did you get it?

Looks like the kinda car were you push the pedal down, and need to go the back seat to scrape your brains off the back window when you stop.
