I've heard of guys doing that. I seem to recall that you need to get the mix right or it stays gummy.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

Way back 50+ years ago I had a friend that drove his dads Caddy to the drive in on Friday nights. We had a lot of fun in that land yacht. Plenty of room for what ever!

I was the originator of the now worldwide axiom "who doesn't love an old Caddy?"

Time to move on from the patina....
I am beginning to question the viability of putting the nailhead in it.
Unfortunately the early nailheads-264-322 dont have any options for a bolt up trans except the Dyna-flow with out an adapter. $$$$
I might have to see if i can swap the nailhead for something newer and less costly.
SBC i suppose. Kind of boring though....

You guys checked out the prices on a Cadillac engine lately.$$$
I dont want a modern one. 429 and 500 are precious now. Apparently.
Remember my budget. $00000.
Its about $700 for a nailhead trans adapter that will fit the GM TH trans.
And since ive got $200 into the nailhead it still might be cheaper in the long run to just bite the bullet on the adapter.
I would like to use as much of my in house parts as possible.
One of the reasons i building the car this way is that Cadillac parts are $$$$
Im looking at about $500 just for a windshield. And if i cant reuse the rubber another $375.
Much to think about.
Thanks for the comments.....
Torchie
