just happy to be here
My name is Mel and I currently reside in San Dimas, Sunny So-Cal.
After high school back in '80's I owned an L.A. built '67 RS-SS 350 Camaro w/ a built LT-1, M22, 12 bolt posi w/ 4:56's and Guldstrand suspension (I was Mulholland Drive racer in the Hollywood area back in those days!!) which I sold in 1992.
For the last 10 years or so I've owned an L.A. built 50 50 on 723 '69 Z with the original 302 DZ still in it which I rebuilt about 6 years and 1500 miles ago. M20, 12 bolt posi w/ 3:73's, Dick Guldstrand front coils, gas shocks, poly bushings, radials on rally's, needless to say a fun car.
This car was originally a non-tach car and I just installed an original used 6,000/8,000 rpm tach in the car which I purchased on ebay about 2 or 3 years ago,(finally a little inspiration/motivation!) Although it may not be technically correct, since I've seen a few examples which preceded mine with the 6000/7000 unit, I really dig it since it works beatifully. I'm in the process of installing a center fuel gauge as the car's a non-console car. If anyone has any leads on an original NOS or used center fuel gauge I'd greatly appreciate it.
Anyhow, I was fishing around for some technical info on the fuel gauge install and stumbled on to this web site, seems like a pretty cool site looking forward to sharing info w/ all.
