Hey Scott, whenever your ready send me some 800x640 pixel shots of your favorite pics of all your newer mods up to now and I'll put them in your website that is in your signature.

Alan, Somehow I lost your website I did for you
https://moskovita-photography.com/AlanChambers68vette.htm
when you got the forum from me with:
http://corvettec3.com/
So I'd like to do one for you if you send me your favorite pictures as well. I notice you don't have a signature anymore?

My bride was kind enough to get me a cold air intake for my vette! Hopefully I can get it installed over the holidays!

Pictures will come Jack!!

You will feel a big difference ( don't ever trade your wife in ..she's a keeper Cool), my 68 has the BB hood that is sealed to the carb & in cooler weather the difference in power is amazing. I've had cool air intakes on my 67 Dodge for ever & the increase in power is really felt.  Have a Merry Christmas

Well,
It took a bit of trimming but that was easy enough!
Got the intake installed and it seems to work great! Seat of the pants dyno indicate an increase in power at higher RPM's . . . . . I think . . . . .

I forgot my ipad so I did not get intake air temp readings on the initial run.
I will get them though!

Sounds like it was a mod even I could make. 😊....Mark

Thanks Jack!
I do like the new air box over the tube and filter on the end. Looks more finished to me.

The next change is I just pulled the trigger on LED headlight conversion. I took her to Eastern Washington late last year and came home in the dark. YIKES! the old yellow headlights will be replaced with a pure white DOT & SAE approved set of LED lights. I prefer the look of the old headlights but the new ones are not bad and should help my getting older eyes! LOL!

Last night I was surfing YouTube and stumbled into this video!
It was taken September 2019 at Pacific Raceways near Seattle for the GM Nationals!
It is not my video.

If you skip forward to 4:55 you will see me in my 69 convertible running low 12's!
If you skip to 7:38 you will see my brother in his 68 Firebird in the high 10's!

Nothing particularly unique but it is fun to see my brother and I in the same video clip!

Over the last few days I was able to install my new LED headlights, adjust them, then last night I drove around with them!

WOW! what a great upgrade! I still have a bit of fiddling to do with adjustments but  man am I impressed!

I still have to install these once the headlights are adjusted to my tastes!
