'nother new guy

I've been signed up for a while, but never posted. I get to come here and dream of the day I get to build by 460 to replace the 400 in my '79 4x4. The 460 was originally in a '76 2 wheel drive that I bought in high school (25ish years ago). The engine survived (thanks to a couple overhauls and a new crank, new .030 over pistons. I learned my driving habits as a kid watching my dad pull onto the highway in his '75 460 pickup (that is also when I learned that I really enjoy the smell of tire smoke :shock: , I could never keep tires on my 78 T/A or 86 Grand National)

I like to cook and play in the garage, the chili thread prompted me to sign in and start posting.

Thanks for letting me bore you, keep the vids, pics, dyno results, and stories coming.
