Thanks for a great forum! 66 Tri-power/rag top

Hi guys, newbie here. Just want to thank you for the info and wiring diagrams here as it just helped me solve an issue I had with a 66 tri-power rag top that belongs to Jim Wangers. I have been working on his cars for 17 years. This will be my new source for needed info on future repairs.

I can post pictures of this car if anyone wants to see.

Kind regards,

Robert Rossello-Robs auto repair, Vista, CA.

If you want a good read, pick up his book, "The glory days". Its has a lot of good street racing stories from back in the day and documents his time with GM, Chrysler and Ford.

Great car, and welcome to the forum. I hope Jim Wangers' 85th birthday was a hit this weekend and he's doing well....I was unable to attend, but some friends went. I've met him at the Madera Pontiac/Olds show a couple of times and had some great discussions with him....talk about getting it straight from the source!! Rukee, great to hear from you! Figured you were busy with "real" stuff.
