My 67 Fastback Mustang
participating in the 2008 Shelby Club Vintage Exhibition Race held during
the Mini-Nats celebration at Thunderhill Raceway. This is a great event
that the Nor Cal Shelby Club puts on once a year, and I'm extremely happy
to be a part of it. This video is in three parts due to the length of the

1974 Pontiac Trans Am 455 start up
Firing it up and turning on the fans. Wearing the custom silver Trans Am
ring I designed and had made that matches the car. Starts right up and
idles well, at around 1300 RPM in neutral, due to the large cam. In the
last few months I had to completely go through the MSD Probillet
distributor, which, like the engine has about 300 miles on it. Was driving
it home from a local show and started running terribly, backfiring etc,
barely made it. Opened up the dist and it was full of rust and oxidized
aluminum particles, amazing it ran at all. The car is in dry and sunny So.
CA. Turns out this is a problem with these distributors, as when I called
MSD they first denied it was, but then described how it happens and sent me
a ready-made diagram showing how to drill holes and vent the cap to prevent
it from happening again in the future, and have a service set up to repair
them for 120.00... Did it myself, although I did have to buy a new cap and
rotor. New cap has a vent, surprise... Had to clean the rust and oxidation
from every single part with my Dremel using wire brushes then sandpaper,
then painted the surfaces (except for the inductor rib and pickup faces)
with clear lacquer on their recommendation. Then did a valve adjustment as
the roller rockers were a bit out and it runs like a top.
Elkhart Lake Road America Race Way Vintage Cars
http://www.wellsve.com I spent a day recently with Peter Meier, Steve
Hildebrand and Tim Froh at the Elkhart Lake race way. They were having time
trials in preparation for the vintage car race held that weekend. We
virtually had the track to ourselves. We were able to go into the pits and
most anywhere we wanted. Peter is the technical editor for Motor Age
Magazine. Steve is our director of marketing and Tim is our TPS and Knock
sensor engineer. Some very cool cars here. I had a great time! Hope you
enjoy it too.
