I'm slow to pull my cruiser out this year too. My El Camino does 13-15 mpg. On highway road trips it will average just over 15. Vacuum carb will probably help, but mine also has highway gearing and a lame early 70s 350 with low lift and low compression. FWIW I've never hooked up a wideband to it.

Cool.

Plan to meetup tomorrow.

Will have a buddy with me hitching a ride back to VA.. another slant 6 nut.

He drove the lemons car from VA to CMP and we munched a 1/4 -20 nut into cylinders 1 and 6 today.  Also had diff and rear brake  issues.

Will be in touch via text!

Thanks a bunch!

Dad broke out his 60 Corvette. First time since October he drove it. Took a bit to clear its throat, but once it did it didn't miss a beat.

If he was late, it was my fault, there were gastro issues that kept me from getting on the road when I planned to.

Thanks!  I forgot they had them . . . I was thinking about repurposing something from an F150 or Silverado, but the S10 might be a better size.

Of course I haven't seen an S10 around here for years.

If you have a chance would you measure the height and length?  No real rush .  . .
