My Eliminator's not done yet but is streetable. Do you have directions to Location in Yakama. I would like to see a few cats that are complete.

Just changed gears yesterday to 2.75 Track Lock. This got RPM down to 2600 at 70 Mph so I shouldn't go broke on gas or wear engine out too fast.

I will come from Spokane area.

Swamper,
It was nice to see your car today. I was hoping to get to meet you but that didn't happen, Oh well it will. I hope you had a nice drive and made it home OK. I think you have a good starting point with that Eliminator. I'll post some pictures from the show later, Neal.

I loved seeing the Cougars. My car ran great no problems at all. I left early because I didn't want to drive after dark. I took pictures of the other two 69 Coupes for refrence on routing of wireing harness, seat belt (shoulder harness) location.

Car got 22.23 MPG for the day. I changed gear to 2.75 Track lock last week. RPMs dropped from 3800 @ 70MPH to 2600 @ 70.

Someone told me I had wrong dash pannell so I checked when I got home. The Marti's Report indicated It had Decour Interior as upgrade so it is correct.

All in all a great day. I look forward to meeting you in the future.


Jim
