Hello Txbobcat

OK ..its a '66 Marina Blur SS that I purchased lately from Colorado Springs.
I have been looking for such a car for a long time .. was worth waiting.

It came w/283 SB and a PG transmission. Light Blue interior and gauges in center console. I'm still away from unveiling its secrets. I was lucky to have its cowl tag decoded by "TAR6569" in section Tag Team. Thank U Sir

Did purchase a set of spinners for these 14" wheels. I plan to have 17" Torq Thrust in future.

I don't have any plans for it at present. Since I am traveling a lot, but I'm sure I will enjoy it when I go back home.

Please check my album for its pictures.

I have seen some nice cars come out of Colo Springs and yours is one of them. Great color combo. Do you plan on bumping up the cubes on that car?

Bob
A 350 would be the best choice I have ... Maybe by next year.
Do U think a Power Glide would stand the beating of a healthy 350 ?

The powerglide wil stand up BUT that 350 tranny will get you down the street a whole lot faster than the pg. 350 trannys are cheap and easy to find and well worth the effort.

Well I don't know how common they are, or how easy it will be to find one for sale in Saudi Arabia, but I agree it will be worth the look to try and find one.

A PowerGlide is just a broken TH350 where it takes off in second gear all the time. Once you get a first gear you will really miss it if it were to be taken away.

Somebody asked about his location (I usually check the IP to verify location so we are not being scammed by a Nigerian prince wanting you to cash his check and send him back the excess money). The person that asked thought he was in SoCal but he responded as being a little further east and living in an area with the same rain fall right now only a lot hotter.
