TFS headed 545 pic

I had this in the tech section but felt bad for hijacking a thread with it, so here it is again.
I have the specifics somewhere in another post and I'm hoping to put it on a dyno by the end of the month.

My fingers are crossed

I'm hoping that I'll have it finished and on a dyno by the end of the month. The alternator brackets are from a '69 Thunderbird and the car is still driven on the street alittle.

Hotrodbird, nice looking mill! I would really like to see more pics of your T-Bird, can't say I've ever seen anyone hot-rod one of those before, looks very nice what I can see of it, that 545 should have the torque to get that beast moving.

Thanks

Not too much more to do and it will be finished, I've got to put the intake, oil pan and valve covers on and it will be ready to light. Here is a link to a buch of photos of the car at cardomain. http://www.cardomain.com/ride/656142

Thanks for the compliments, hopefully everything will go well, I'm hoping to make atleast 3 pulls with it. The covers are from Garrett Machine, here's a link. http://www.garrettmachine.com/
