Firing up the 64 Fairlane.
It hasn't been started since March of this year. But the big block started right up like its no big deal. Had this car for a long time , bought it when I was 18, Drove in stock form back and forth to work in the eighties, then started working on it and street raced it in the late eighties to early nineties. In 93 I back halfed it, then started bracket racing at the strip.In 2000, I built the front clip, and switched to big block. Me and this car have seen a lot of fun together.
