Now for some of the good stuff. These were pics taken just after having spent 5 or so hours doing a wash, clay bar, compound, polish, and wax the night before in a garage.

Yes it is a clean car( local friend of his) but unfortunately he is having issues with the car still. It idles like crap. (Running pretty rich) at least last time I talked to him. In all fairness I don't think previous owners were the smartest.

Still running weird. I kinda figured out the vacuum leak, the couplers rolled when putting the upper and lower back together. So now its running back the way it was before I messed with it.

OOPS... Looks like something got messed up...

Well... it has been about a month having the car off the road. I was driving down the road with my dad, heard a pop, some rattling, and done. The car wouldn't start back up. Get it home finally and do some checking over for some stuff. Do a compression and they read as follows. 0-85-0-0. Checking timing and the exhaust cam is off about 90*. Retime and recheck the compression and again, they read as follows. 0-115-0-0. So I have gotten ahold of a new head to replace the damaged one. Here are some pics for now, rebuild and clean up pics to follow.
