Tux, took the time to view the pictures of you '76.  Interested because I too have a '76 with 9,300 documented original miles.  It's about 99% stock, L82, 4-speed.  Was wondering what you did to your engine to pump up to 355 hp.

Tux....why do you do that to me?? Pull out a great video of a hot running car while I am banging away on that nightmare that I own.  Excellent vid and Jay Leno is a cool car guy.

Thanks -
Jay sure has a way of telling you how he feels about his cars. He seems like a pretty decent guy and would be a blast to have at your cruise night.
 
Can you imagine a guy showing up with a different car each week for the next 5 or 6 years?
