Have my dream car.. hello all!


455 with holly carb and MSD ign.

Well I waited long enough in my mind and I have decided to pull the trigger on my dream car. I purchased a 1969 442 and she looks beautiful. I am new to the American muscle / classic world but not from the automotive world. Wanted to say hello and Iím looking forward to talking and learning with you all!

My first car was a 1969 Cutlass and I still drive it today. You will never get tired of looking at and driving that beautiful ride. Congrats on finding your dream car.

Thanks! If you are referring to the gauge on the steering column.. Its a fuel pressure gauge.. tough to see in the photo the way the wheel is positioned!

The only thing I will say is the previous owner of this car had a weakness and that was electrical.. The fuel gauge reads full when it says 3/4 and the wiring to that FP gauge is subpar. He installed an aftermarket radio (That is mounted inside the glove box that I am SURE is parasitic drawing my battery). But I am very happy with what I got, these are in no way complaints! Haha

Yeah, that's the one I was wondering about. It looked like a tach clamped to the steering column.
