      I'm 66 and that would have been fine for my drag car. Leave at 8000 rpm and change gears at 8000 (straight up).
      At our long closed local Hudson, NC track was about 4 miles from Don Carlton's garage. We could stand about 5 feet from the cars at the starting line. His tach was a 360* 10,000rpm starting with 0 at the top and 10,000 would be all the way around back to 0. When he was match racing, he would be staged with the tach needle bouncing a little above 0 and as soon as both stage lights came on, the needle would swing almost instantly making the full circle back to 0 (10,000 rpm). The local guys called that "watch Don dial the operator".

        I'll probably get an LED bulb for my fuel pressure gauge.

                      I built a plant in Clevland and spent the better part of a year there and had no idea they had a Mopar show? Arghh….By same token the only thing I saw was the inside of my welding hood and the Perkins restaurant at bottom of hill from my hotel!

                      I don't remember anywhere in my post's referring to this car being a "show queen" when in fact it's my drag car that I did a complete restoration on and will be raced frequently. If there is a cruise in or a car show near where I live I take it to them.

                            I'll hit the track with it when I get the Dana in it. It has an 8 3/4 in it right now.. Should be a 9.90 car.
