Why spend the effort to make one? Those nylon guides are readily available and cheap.

About the only change in there that I would make would be to use a VB&P dual-mount rear spring in place of the standard-mount spring and sway bar. :thumbs:

Somewhere along the line I've seen a custom LED light bar actually molded into the stock lines of the top of the halo. I don't think I saved the pic, but it looked good.

They're tighter and don't deflect as much as rubber bushings. It's a more precise feel. Depending on the springs and shocks, and what the driver is looking for, some might call it "harsh" under...

I didn't say "displacement," I said "size." Physical size. Every US manufacturer has small and big block engines. Small blocks are smaller than big blocks. End of story.

I still have to vote that general engine size is what determines a "small block" vs. "big block." BBC blocks are...well...bigger.

No harm in getting all sides of a debate out there. :thumbs:

If you're ever in this area, you're more than welcome to take my 77 out and see how the ES bushings feel on the street.

I vote for electric. Less crap to get in the way, less weight on an already too-heavy car.

Side-exit exhaust systems and open headers were common during the 50s "hot rod" movement. Not much place you can stick a V8 exhaust on a Model A or 32 Ford except out the sides.

I don't think they moved any engine production to Mexico until later than that, but I could be wrong.

Almost all C3s have a big hunk of shiny under the door, with the exception of the few years that used the black rocker covers. The "it doesn't look right on a non-chrome bumper car" comments seem...

To hang out with other car enthusiasts, admire different rides, get some sun, etc. I generally prefer cruise-ins or all-make shows to very focused types of gatherings...variety is the spice of life.

Lists like this don't seem to get that sports cars are designed for handling, not necessarily speed. There are a lot of true sports cars with small engines and low top speeds.

A bit of flex might be normal, but that much isn't. I'd be checking the body mount bushings, along with a very thorough check for rust in the birdcage and/or frame. My 77 doesn't flex a bit when I...

I have the ES bushings on the front of my car (and a few select spots in the back). No squeaks at all, and the lack of deflection in the suspension bushings is very nice.

The 307 dates back to the late 60s, and the 305 was used in F-bodies and the 1980 CA Vettes. Smog-era, maybe...but probably not Mexican.

The 307 inhabits a very odd place in that it uses pistons...
