Nothing new here, just wanted to share my latest "improvement" to the 57. Very easy, took about 3 hours all told. Runs better, idles better, MPG report later, I'll take any improvement, but hoping for 1.5 to 2MPG.

O-well, it will be moved to the other side when the A/C goes on. I borrowed the air cleaner from another car that is sitting idle, I may change it later, I wanted to drive it.

Looks good, by the way I found that I could go about three stages leaner on crusing if I used the heavier step up springs, which gave me a two mpg improvement.

Yep, it certainly looks like your wagon is ready to hit the drag strip! :D Nice car, BTW. ;)
