Been having interment starting issues with the 68. I traced it back to the ignition switch & after taking the dash apart ( I hate doing this) found the ground wire just hanging on.  So while I'm in there I will replace the ign swt & the key lock & apply hot glue to each connection...seems like the car shaking tends to loosen things up over time.

Funny, I just had to replace my ignition switch. It decided to quit working while it sat in my garage! Doh!

Well I finally go around to putting the dash back together yesterday after installing a new ingition swt & key tumbler. I hot glued the connections on the ign switch so hopefuly they won't come loose...took it to the gas station & filled it up...haven't driven't it much since Oct 2018 only about 60 miles. Combo of bad weather, sick BIL & starting problems. First nice day & that's gonna change...missed that acceleration rush Cheesy
