I know of a car friend (79 years old) who would really like those photos of the '38 Plymouth!
He just bought a laptop computer and when he has it all set up, I'll show him the pics you posted. In fact, I'll encourage him to join this forum!

My current list includes a 72 F250, A 57 PONTIAC CHIEFTIAN, A 61 PONTIAC CATALINA BUBBLETOP with 33x22x15 hoosiers under the back and yes, it still has the back seat, 69 FIREBIRD drag car, 73 Luxury LeMans with 455 and wire hubcabs along with the fender skirts can you say big time sleeper that I enjoy embarrassing the new over rated ugly and slow LS powered camaros with it. God knows I enjoy blowing their doors off with a "grandmas car". ( it also runs 12.10's at 115 mph in the 1/4, gets 19 mpg at 75 mph, and super comfortible). Thats my current older/ classics. Looking at a 76 LeMans that I built 20 years ago that is for sale now, and we are in neg. That one has a 350 Pontiac and still after 100,000 miles on the build runs 12.40's at 110mph. I could easily make it my driver.

New pic I snapped of my Grand Ville (1973) over the weekend when at a local cruise (and a nearby 72 Ford LTD 4dr that is setting wasting away!)

Back when Pontiacs looked like Pontiacs and Fords looked like Fords!

Tennesseestorm, on your chevy, you should check the timing gear set. I've had them as much as 12 degrees off when the "dotS" were lined up !!! The cheaper timing sets come from china, indoneesia, or mexico, and the production "tolerances" might be the broached slot for your wooduff key as much as .080" !!!! Just to give you an idea, imagine .080" on a 360 degree wheel! Now add in the crankshaft key way placement of .080" (that was chevy's official tolerance) you could end up with the timing of the cam way off. But then it could just be it's a normal gutless small block chevy in too much car with a tall rear gear.
