Thanks guys!

I did some running around with it yesterday, it's sure running well. With the 165 thermostat and all the airflow I have it's sure running cold, I couldn't be happier. With the 455 I don't have to break 1/4 throttle to get it to move quickly .

I'll take it to a local cruise night tonight, finally

Well, took the truck to Goodguys Spokane in August. We took the scenic route getting there, and I think I put at least 2600 KM (~1600 miles) during the trip. My truck now has over 6100 KM (~3800 miles) on it in a year that it has been on the road. I had a few minor issues during the trip but most are solved or will be soon.

I had some vapor lock problems, but when it's +35įC, sitting in traffic, and the electric fan is working all the time, it all contributes to lots of heat. Hopefully now that I fixed the fan this won't be as much of an issue.

In two weeks I'll be taking off to Radium with it for their fall show.

Thanks Torchie.

I had a neutral safety switch issue that was easily solved but resulted in me missing the ferry and having to wait another hour and a half.

I just need to install my cruise control and work out a couple small bugs for the next trip. I'll probably put on another 1400 km on it going to radium

Hi Snopro, Congrats, on going to Spokane.
A buddy of mine from Grande Prairie, Carman Sipe, roared down to Spokane with a group of you guys, also. I wonder if you met up with him. He drove a hand built '65 black Mustang fastback. He sold me my '36 pick up about 15 years ago.
I always wanted to go on one of those rod runs.

I wasn't on the Western Canada Powercruise so he didn't cruise down with us, and I don't recall his car, but I'm sure I probably saw it at the show. We took the scenic route down via Golden, Nakusp, Nelson, Creston, etc. The Powercruise guys missed all the garage tours Thursday, which were awesome!
