Suddenly I feel like building a gasser...lol...


Gasser is not a bad idea. Finished out the edge more tonight. The edge was the hard part:




G'day All,
My name is Jesse, Im a new member from Australia and I just wanted to say Hello! While I don't own a Pantera my current project car does have a Cleveland engine, it's an Australian 1972 Ford Fairmont you may recognise the body shape from the mad max movies. Anyhow, it's a work in progress, Im building the engine as a basic 410 stroker, with CHI 3V heads and dual plain intake. I look forward to getting to know some of you and learning more about Panteras, cheers,
Jesse
Hello SciFi, yes you can legally drive L hand drive cars here providing they are 30 yrs old or more. If it is younger than 30 it must be converted to R hand drive. Quite a few American muscle cars running around over here now, it's often cheaper than restoring an Australian car.
Cheers,

Jesse

CHI makes some very good products. I am using their 3V heads and intake manifold on my engine.
Yes the CHI stuff is pretty good. While we have mostly Cleveland motors in Australian fords (and few windsors), good 4V heads are so expensive and hard to find here now that brand new alloy heads can be had for similar money. I was initially going to buy AFD heads but found out they are now cast in Asia so I wasn't keen on that.
I bought the manifold and 208cc runner 3Vs bare, I just need to take them into the engine shop to get fitted with quality hardware. Then can fit them to the bottom end which is already built. Smiler
Fun times ahead!

My other cars include my two daily driver Jaguars, an X100 2002 XKR convertible and an X150  2010 XKR coupe, a 1968 Pontiac GTO currently being restored, a 1978 Datsun 280Z (owned since new), a 1958 Corvette (currently being restomodded and destined for my son), and a 2016 Lincoln MKX Black Label (wife's daily driver).

ROBERTGARVEN This is my third visit to the thread, to view your garage photo!

Since I'm here I may as well contribute. 

2003 10th Anniversary Edition Mustang SVT Cobra

500 HP and TQ at the wheels, which comes on at a low RPM due to the factory roots style blower. Sadly just sold it. Yet not so sad since I can now concentrate on the Goose.

Definitely some nice rides in everyone's stables! Here are a few of mine...

66 Mustang GT, currently in the body shop for new paint to return to stock vintage burgundy color.

Prior to being stripped:

Current updated pic of my 66 GT.  Still need to reassemble the interior.
