    I'm running 255's (Cooper Cobra) on my 77. They fit fine, look great, grip the road better than the 225's. It was a good move. Gonna do the same to my 79.

    Since the weather has been warmer, I have been getting some minor vapor lock with my 79 L48. I don't get it with my 77 though. They are essentially the same engine, but I have a performance cam on...
