Had to move my GTC to my parent's house while I get my house ready to sell. First time I've had it on the highway since I got it. Mostly I just drive it around the neighborhood and to the gas station. 4000 foot climb to where my parents live and boy was it slow. Up the steep parts it barely went 45 mph. A lot of downshifting. But it doesn't overheat. Probably just needs a good tuneup and some carburetor work. On the flats it ran pretty good. Once I get my new house I'll have time to work on it and give it a good scrubbing.

Ah, yes. And you wondered why I converted to 3" exhaust, headers on bot the in and out, 4 bbl carb and way too much time getting the timing right. :-)

I still have trouble on steep grades and I'm pretty sure it's because I still don't have it timed just right, and the kick-down iss off a bit as well. Congrat's on getting it out on the road!
