    I'm a retired engineer who is the original owner of an unmodified 69 Mach1 351w, H code with an FMX. It was a daily driver for many years and now that I'm retired I intend to restore the car of my youth.

    What have you done for your Man Cave today?

    Nice indeed. What are the brands of outboards? I see at least one Mercury and Johnson.

    I haven't done it yet but intend to use a 4R70W, which is the last of the AODs, sometimes called and AODE and electronically controlled. They got all the bugs out of the AOD and you can set the shifts with the controller. Contact Joe Persad at premiergenerator@gmail.com. Hes a nice guy that can answer all your questions. As I recall, he makes a trans support and shifter linkage.

    1969 Mach 1 Correct Hood Finish

    yes it would, but only if you can tell us exactly what the painter did, otherwise its more spinning of wheels...in a bad way

    Finally completed I think

    I was talking calendar time, and yours is a little over four years. That's quicker than most and you had lots to do. Did you do most of the work yourself or did your son help?

    It's Back! So WTF Happened?

    I find Imgur difficult to use, and if an image isn't viewed in 6 months they delete it. I'm trying to figure out albums, but it doesn't work the way they say it does. Part of the problem could be that I'm running Linux not Windows.

    You might Google "Mythos Media"- full disclosure, its my kids (my son and his wife)

    Their site says its about $8/month, or $96/yr when you renew. Not bad and they handle all the hardware issues I guess. You have to make the website- is this easy enough for neophytes or do you need to hire someone?

    It's Back! So WTF Happened?

    Tell us a little bit about that Mid- do you own the hardware (server) or does someone host the site for you, for only $65/year?

    Burning up Coils

    A word of caution; I was warned by Chris Straub (who makes custom cams) that most of the aftermarket distributors now use Chinese gears that tend to eat the cam. I believe the only gear he recommended was made by Comp Cams. I looked for the information for 20 minutes and gave up- Barnett will know if he drops by.

    It's Back! So WTF Happened?

    I never use social media- its too intrusive, and as stated above you can't follow the thread. There is such a thing as a Content Delivery Network. This site would code all pictures to be stored there so they don't take up space on the forum's server, they are stored elsewhere. Of course someone has to pay. Perhaps users could somehow to charged by memory usage. Someone with a build thread and lots of pics would be using more memory and be charged accordingly. It could be run automatically thru paypal. Google Cloud has a storage service. Of course the owner may not want to get involved in such a setup. The reason VMF has so many advertisers is because of the traffic, and they restrict uploads to a mostly unusable amount.

    very few like it including me- its waaay past time for new paint. But what do you think of picture hosting websites?

    Sagging Rockers anyone?

    Take a look at my post in "Its back, so WTF happened?" Its not a permanent solution, since you don't know what will eventually happen to the picture hosting site, but it would relieve the gigabyte crunch here.
