    Yes. Quite a bit actually. I've always been a night owl. Phone usually doesnt ring, limited distractions. I can crank the tunes up to 11 with no complaints.

    I work nights and keep why weekends on the same schedule, but I can be out in the shop working to 2am or later now that the new shop is getting a bit more finished....heat (even poor heating), and some insulation makes a big difference. ;)

    Dropped the 440 and 727 in tonight.

    I plan to throw some parts/gaskets and paint at it, but it was a good running motor when I pulled it from the green 71...I dont want to open up a can of worms if it i dont need to, plus I'm sick of tripping over it so in the car it goes for the time being.

    You even found the sister parts car for ALL your needs and you're bailing....which is what I was saying in my text. Another whore comes along and you get tired of the old one and wanna move on.

    Shameful

    Oh no. Why not put most of it together and try selling it as a project car? This was supposed to be it's 2nd chance at life.

    I suspect a more significant other car may have been dropped in his lap....
