I didnt know dave sold it lol
I sold the wagon, and then I got to driving this LTD and liked it too much as a daily driver. I decided the 418 would be impractical as a daily driver and would be more fun with a little motor. About that time DeeAnn said something about being in the market for a stroker windsor and we worked out a deal. I delivered the motor to her place last December, in the back of a rental mini-van after putting on her timing cover and oil pan. Our visit was very brief, but she is a very nice lady, and quite the looker as well. Glad to hear everything worked out well for her and this motor is doing what she wants.

Do any of you guys think the 60ft is good where it's at? I suggested to her the other night that she try punching from an idle on the last yellow vs. trying to load the converter. I think that might let it flash more RPM then trying to load it as the front tires won't hold it now when trying to load it.


I said TFS, not AFR. I'm not fan of Canfield, seen too many of them crack over the years.
Yeah you did. Don't know where that came from, me and my attention span

I've heard many of the early 192's were prone to cracking.  Can't say I've heard of any problems from the later 195.

The trip wasn't just for that. My son was being let out of college in Columbus Ohio, and my parent's live about 120 miles from DeeAnn, so I made a weekend out of it. Parents were stoked I got to be there for my birthday for the first time in probably 30 years and they got to see their grandson.

Did a cult kidnap you when you were 10?  Was Rodney the cult leader?

I honestly don't get it.

I'm sweating, my heart is racing, my clutch foot is twichin', and my right arm punched the computer screen doing an involentary 2-3 shift while reading all that.
