So are you a fan of strong safety Keith Tandy, or are you a thirty seven year old fan of Jack Sparrow's crew across the last four Pirates of the Caribbean films?
Before you go overboard (no plank intended) on four wheel disc brakes read what others have said about the cost benefit. Disc brakes are a racing option that the factory uses on the front of cars because they are cheaper to install than drum brakes. Bigger drum brakes offer better stopping at a lower cost. That and you have to be careful about rear brakes as not all of them will work (especially the early Pontiac and Cadillac rear discs).
Power steering on a '66 isn't that hard to install as the parts are all available as service parts. A/C if your car didn't have factory air it will require a knee knocker under the dash with a Sanden compressor. The Sanden generally requires a wider V-belt to turn the compressor so the GM crankshaft pulley will have the belt riding high and not making enough contact to power the compressor without slipping. I solve that problem with a serpentine belt conversion.
On the name, neither. The guys on the palm tree forum thought I liked Pseudophoenix sargentii (Buccaneer palms). In reality, the Bucs played in Super Bowl 37 on my 37th birthday (1/26/03) and I have used that handle on most forums since. As you can imagine, there was a massive party at my house that day!
I went and bought new tires & rims over the weekend (should be here by Saturday). Wanted to stay with the '60s muscle look, so I couldn't bring myself to buy 17". I just bought basically the same thing I had, just in 15", and a little wider. Cragar 15x7 w/ 235/60s in the front & 15x8 w/ 255/60s in the back. Tires are BF Goodrich Radial T/As. Will transfer the spinners from my old set to my new set. This way I am ready for the disc brakes, if that's the way I ultimately go (which I'm about 75% sure of).
On the a/c, I may have to hunt around a little & get creative. My Impala has the S/S gauge package, so no vents above my console (do you know who fixes these clocks?), and I'm 6' 9", so I need to be mindful of using up too much space under the dash.
I have already resigned myself to the idea that I have the potential of spending lots of money on this car. But if not on the car, it would be something else.
I'm sure I'll have lots of other questions, so please be patient with me.
I have attached a picture of me & my car from my Sunday drive.
