Spoiler Alert - Muscle Car Of The Week Episode 297
Machines need to be fast to fly, and in some cases, that’s a bad thing.

Dodge called the new for 1968 Charger design “The Clean Machine”, and they weren’t kidding.

  • 1969 Camaro Transforms From Big Block to Supercharged LT4 V8 at V8 Speed & Resto Shop

  • 1968 el Camino Malibu

    1968 el Camino Malibu Thanks Kevin,My hunch is that it's the hole placement on the heads and not a bracket issue.The aircon lines are crimped to length and all that's left now is a little wiring and we're done here.I couldn't see a neater way to route the hoses through the firewall here without them going too close to the headers.I get a lot of satisfaction out of this, especially the problem solving side of things and as always I really appreciate your feedback Kevin.CheersBen
