Thanks Jeff for posting pictures, I could learn but would have to be retrained every time LOL. You can see extra ramps at the fenders, I needed them as my autocross car was lowered. Gene Jeff thanks for keeping the Fitch Sprint in top shape, can't believe I restored it 24 years ago .

Ken Hand :: Would not have helped if he was IFR rated or not, flying at low altitude in the mountains in the FOG the instruments will not help much !!! They were too low for radar and flight following could not help !!! They should have stayed on the ground, we use to call it GET THERE IDIS !!! Gene Barr Eustis Fl.

I know what you mean, I told some friends that I may be looking for a winter project. Well one informed me of a 1984 Mustang SVO that the owner told him it ran but needed some work, sense it is a rare car I was interested. I went and looked at it and all the interior needed replacing and the dash had holes eaten in it !!! I sked him if could drive it onto my trailer if I decided to buy it, he sa

Don't know about your mileage question but have story about when I worked part time at a service station in the early 60s, an engineer came in with a 1963 corvair coupe and had a tach mounted on dash,I aske him if he was racing it he said OH no I figured if I shift at set RPMs I can get better mileage, I asked him what he payed for the tach and he said $40. I then asked if he was going to us

The parking brake may be the start problem but not the idling in neutral problem, I have someone that wants to buy it and I will give then a trans and converter if they still want it, I am 82 and not pumped up about changing everything, if they don't want it I may have to and will. Gene

Yes, the only time it labored at start was when it had sat overnight in pit area, the only other time it was hard to move was in neutral. come to think of it the same laboring start happened when I pulled it out to load on trailer for the trip.

My autocross car at the convention developed what I think is a trans problem. After setting for a while, drop it in drive and it labors to move for about 20 feet then runs fine, in the autocross staging line put it in neutral and hard to move ?? put in drive runs normal. Any Ideas on the cause ??? Thanks !!! Gene Barr Eustis, Fl.
