    Default Just out cruisin'

    Anybody else having as nice weather as I am? 74 degrees yesterday, got the ol' hotrod out and burned up some gas, just because. Also been trying out a pertronics unit I put in the distributor.
    I've ran a set of dual points in the distributor for the last 20 years, it's time to put a new set in. Well, a friend had a pertronics unit that I could try, see how I like it. Went and got a hotter coil, hooked up the pertronics, WOW, what a difference, starts easier, throttle response is better. Think I'll leave it in.
    Gonna be another nice day today, gettin' the car out again!!!

    The weather has been in the 60's for the highs. The most I drive mine is out of the garage, getting ready to paint. Your upgrade sounds like what the Dr. Ordered.

    We have had the warmest winter I can remember in long time. It's usually too cold to get the car out anytime before middle/end of March, I've had the HotRod out at least 3 times in the last few weeks, and I love it!!!!
