OK - couple of highlights, and a link to the FB album:

Here's the Mustang:

A couple with Tom Smith from Misfit Garage (he's actually quite the character - cool guy):
   

   

My pal Gonzo with his awesome '70 Camaro:

BONUS ROUND!

The night before the car show when I was tucking the Mustang in for the night, my pal Dave took a quick video to share with his buddy Greg.

Thanks for sharing the pics.  You, Dave and John Smith look like you all could be brothers!  I also like the Pharoah Eddie shirt.

I just watched your video. Man do I remember that sound!!! Mine had 2 1/2" off the headers, 12 inch gavanized "Tractor" mufflers, (straight throughs) from TSC, and 2 1/4" pipes straight out under the rear axle. To say it was loud is an understatement. It could be heard 2 and a half miles away. Oh what a sound. Thanks for posting it, I had forgot how good that sounded!

PS all three are great rides but I'd still pick the Mach1, if I had the choice. Great car Eric.

Thanks!  Everybody kept talking about "Pharoah Eddie," but it's actually not an Iron Maiden shirt.  My wife's really into Ancient Egyptian stuff and found it for me many years ago.  I'm not unhappy everybody thought it was "Pharoah Eddie," though - I enjoyed everyone talking about it more than anything (I love that shirt).

Thanks, Man!  Frank has his original 351C-2V hopped up with lots of Edelbrock and CompCams goodies, topped off with full-length Hooker Ceramic-coated Comp Headers running into a Pypes 2.5" stainless system with X-pipe and Pypes Street Pro mufflers.  I love the sound as well - that's the only exhaust note I've ever heard from this car, since the engine was seized, with tiny-tube Blackjack headers into a straight-back dual exhaust with Cherry Bombs... and all of it was full of sand when I took it apart as well.  Poor car - seems happy enough now, though.  Wink

Yesterday, took off to WPE exhaust shop in San Angelo to get the O2 sensor bung welded in... and left the one with the E-Street kit on my phone charging stand (where I put my keys and whatnot at the end of the).  Fortunately, an O2 sensor bung is an O2 sensor bung is an O2 sensor bung... the shop had some to spare, so all is good.  Only charged me $50 to install the bung, weld up 6 U-clamp'd joints, and add some permanent hangers out back.

It was really humid yesterday (today as well - "swampy" as my pal from Phoenix mentioned), so I'll probably hold off on installing the E-Street until the weekend or sometime soon after the temps drop a bit more.  Dave's taking off tomorrow morning to head back, so we're just gonna chill and enjoy the rest of the day BSing and whatnot.

Sounds like a great way to kill a day. Cheers.
