Is that the dream that reminds me of the movie "deliverance"?

The only thing cooler would have been a 66 Lincoln Continental Convertible.

Default Dun?!?

took it to silver lake friday all went great aside from the rear u-joints breaking and th shaft blowing a hole in the floor under the back seat, and it looks like i need to move the rear spring hangers for the front axle back about an inch and a half cuz my shackles wrapped under and took some of the fun out of wheeling any further, oh well i guess there is a learning curve to building trars after all!!

The caddy is back in the garage, after 2 rear driveshaft's a snapped crossover steering bar and one rear seat floorpan,( driveshaft went through it) time for a new plan,

I am swapping out the 700r4 for th350, ditching the divorced t-case for a NP 243c electronic shift, building a new crossover steering bar (beefier), installing a drop pitman arm and some new stabilizers also gotta get rid of some shims in the front and replace a broken center pin, rear axle also has to be re-clocked for pinion angle and the trans crossmember needs to be "modified"

so far i got the new trans and t-case combo in and need to hook up cooling lines and torque converter
