Hi. I'm Doug. I work with twenty great guys in St Louis at Doug Jenkin's Custom Hot Rods, and we're going to do some work today on Expert Village. We're replacing an old fashioned, inefficient, heavy, hard to repair, hard to get parts for Ford engine in this old convertible T-Bird. We've already done all the body and paint and interior work. The mechanical work is being done now. The old Ford engine, we're taking out, and we're going to replace it with a Chevy fuel injected engine, strictly for financial reasons. The owner of this car is not interested in any ceremonies, or any religion here. He doesn't care what brand of motor, and it's just least expensive to put a Chevy fuel injected motor in this car. That will get him down the road the most dependably and the least expensive way possible. The original 66 Ford was carburetted. All modern cars are fuel injected. Fuel injection is more efficient, it burns less fuel. It makes more power for that less fuel, and it's more dependable. It starts on a cold day, it starts on a hot afternoon. It always works, and it's dependable. This customer doesn't know anything about engines. He only knows about dependability, drive ability, and expense. The Chevy small block, fuel injected upgrade is the best choice for him.
