Ok, this is a retro story but still a fun one to tell....  Back in the early '80's my bro had a black and rust (not the color, the holes) '74 Hornet Hatch with a 304 which he proceeded to overheat beyond yepair.  I happened to have a 360 and a pair of 91C's heads so I built him a engine.  I polished the heads and balanced the pistons and rods with a scale.  The apitimy of a budget build.  I didn't really even know what I was doing then.  I polished the crank with emery cloth... (at least I plastigaged it and it was good)  Anyway, Comp 268H cam polished heads, Highly modified free flow manifolds and a AFB from something or other.  We had my uncle go through a 727 and add a shift kit of coarse.  I don't even know what gear that car had in it but I tell you that SOB would run!!!!  We called it "Serta" because it was the perfect sleeper.  2 kill stories...  Some hot 60's chevy truck with 350/350.  Street racing, every stop light for like 5 lights... The guy went home.  the best one was a '69 351 Mach 1 Mustang...  Nothing but Hornet tail lights.  I bet he never told anybody about that loss...
