:cheers I recently purchased a 2006 w/ 6speed which brings back memories of my 69. THe 69 had 400 cid w/ headman headers, 4:11 OLds gear, crane cam and lifters, 3 angle valve cut, offenhauser dual pland ntake and a Holley 780. Of course a Mallory dual point distr. My new 2006 is about as fast and certainly handles better. ALso better average gas mileage ( 18.3 2,100 miles) and top end, well I won't go there.
