I think you should sell them for $400 and put the original wheels back on.

Unfortunately, the stock wheels wont fit over the 11" cobra brakes and the rims were only 6" wide. When i convert it to 5 lug itll get some cool wheels, maybe steelies with baby moons

I dunno if we've ever made it all the way to 15. last year we tried to make a long run but because off all the traffic the Grand Nationals over heated.
that problem will get fixed soon enough..... pictures will follow.

And the car enjoyed it. This car would not be what it is now without all the questions and favors i asked of you...as soon as i play with the carb more ill drive it down for more wiener rubbing (on the car that is) im wondering if my 3psi of fuel pressure is the cause of the flat spot?

Yeah you really need to come on a road trip down here. My buddy down the street has a BBF Z7 and a clean 82 GT that you would die to see.

Try and get the pressure up to 5psi min. but no higher than 7. The flat spot could be from the bowl going dry after the powervalve opens until the pump catches up.

alright...i need to find a "T" to bypass the FPR and see how much pressure it will then make. I think the FPR may be full of rubber debris

Wow , what a flash back...The first car rental from my insurance company was an 85 LTD ll , My wife's 85 Olds Calais was stolen and this was the rental ....man that was a small 4 door car. I think that was the same platform as your Fairmont for 83 thru 86. What a bad time for big American cars...now were at it again.
