Cinco De Mayo = Drive the 'Cuda Day

Just two pics, nothing fancy. Got the 'ol Fish out today. Drove it to work and such. Trying to get some time in before it's too dang hot to drive the thing. Also brought my other hood home from storage, start doing a little paint prep to it.

I don't like adding a/c to Muscle Cars, atleast aftermarket style. Hot or not outside. Takes away from the nostalgia. If i want creature comforts of a newer vehicle, I'll drive my truck. I'm sure not cluttering up or hacking up my interior for a/c! Just means I'll do some summer night cruising. A/C or not, black vinyl is going to get hot as hell!

Only way I'd really consider adding air, is if i were to install a factory air dash ($$), have a working factory compressor setup on the late model Hemi i want, and I'll make the rest work. Since I don't use the heater core, I can fab up a different HVAC case to work with, and duct to the stock vents...

But for that kinda $$, i rather go faster!

Sweet, I would sweat my @ss off as well...I dont even use A/C in the Rangers. The 93 Ranger A/C went out two years ago, lift/winches/tires etc are more important...lol
