    The 'Cuda is going to shred those classic F60-14 Polyglass GT tires. A 440 6-Pack has 490 lb/ft of torque. This car has a 4.10 rear and a 727 Auto. which will provide torque multiplication. It will need slicks to launch properly.

    Hemmings (both MMM and the big book) is the only company now bringing automotive material into my home. How times have changed. So sad... :(

    Back in the late 60s/early 70s, my favorite car mag was Car Life. They had great car reviews and road tests.

    Muscle Car Review was good too. Hemmings MM is the only one left.

    Hit on the link to the Hemmings story. Very well written and fantastic step by step photos. Painstakingly rebuilt to be just like factory. The car is 1970 all over again. Great job guys!!
