|Glenn, Are you coming to Twist's show this year?|
|Steve, is that you???? It's been WAY to long Steve. If someone buys this packsge, I will drop it off to them on the way to or from your show & I will be at your show. SO if you need me to drop this off from the east coast to Ill. I can do.|
|Sounds like the makings of another good V8 convention. =)|
|The last I checked there were five V8's regeistered.|
|At $2.60 a gal. the HIGH TEST V-8 will stay home & the 4 cyl. with GOOD A.C. @ 30 mpg. will go to the show!!!!!|
Tune up that ROVER ---I get better mileage with my Ford !!
Good to see you on the board--my 4 cyl that I bought from you 5years ago still purrs like a kitten but gets 2nd fiddle position behind the V8 now
All the best
|Come on Glenn I get over 30MPG with my V8 on the highway at 80 MPH.|

|perhaps there will be a very strong contingent of V8 conversions in attendence. i plan to drive up in the 5.0 EFI car for my 2nd long distance shakedown. had to purchase a wiper blade refill on way home from Terre Haute,the "glitch". don't know if i can stand any more problems! Ha! runs on unleaded reg also.|
|Come on Glenn, drive the V8. High test is only 2.97 here in Michigan!!! Besides, we've never lined them up for a little drag race!!!!! :))))) Barney wants to show you what real power is all about |
|$2.97 a gal. NOT ME!!!!! I can do 23-25 with the 4.9/ high test & 25 to 28 with the 4.2 on 87oct & 30mpg on 87 with my with real cool A/C 4 cyl. & I say to he-- with the oil co. I have gone WAY BACK to my Triumph M/C that gives me 50 + mpg. After 34 years, it starts first kick & it sounds as good as a V-8! It's sad when you put $7.50 of 87 oct. in a M/C. Times have changed. You guys have fun, I will stay in the shop & my gas funs in MY pocket. Next year maby. Glenn|
|I'd like petrol at $2.97/gal.........|
its 3 times that in the UK at present.....
|After all this talk about gas I wonder if I should stop using hi-test in my 3.9 rover with 262 isky cam, 1404 edelbrock carb, 9.3 pistons, buick stock intake. About 180 hp. It sounds like I have been wasting my money for the last three years. So if anyone can advise me other wise I will start using regular at the next fillup. Denny|
|Use the cheapest stuff that doesn't ping. If it pings just a smidge, ease off the gas or back off the timing a tad.|
