What's up, my name is Steve and I own a 1966 Tempest. It's all original with 36,000 miles, 326 2bbl, and a(soon to be replaced) 2 speed automatic. It's my daily driver so I'm looking forward to engaging the community for tips and advice.13310367_1167999426578721_6623991293716589062_n.jpg.da282586eae6d0836bbccde275486b2b.jpg

Sweet! Welcome to FP Steve!

What are you replacing the 2-speed with? A 350TH? 200 4R? A slap stick?

It'd better not melt or I'll be going back to building fords. lol. I had a brother in law years ago that had a C4 corvette. At the time it was about 10 years old. He only drove it a couple times a year. Wouldn't even open the garage door if there was a possibility rain. It was a "sunny day car". I just never understood that. Build it, drive it, enjoy it!

I understand it a little more. You don't want to expose it to the really nasty weather like road salt, sleet, snow, and stupid winter drivers.

I have a fellow club member who never takes his beloved '86 Trans Am out unless it is an absolutely perfect day and his road is perfect (he lives on a dirt road). He doesn't want to expose it to anything that will get it dirty or promote corrosion.

I don't mind driving Lucy in the rain. Just not the snow, ice, and salt. For most of us, these aren't daily drivers any more.
