 Yup, thankfully right in a residential area at a couple of miles per hour. Scary stuff. All I could think about is what if that had happened 5 minutes late when we were out on the highway....

 I have the same trouble, occasionally. I've had to change the file/tag to avoid "reversion".

Tim, if the image shows right side up when you open it on your PC, try giving the file a new name, then try downloading again to CP.

Basically, don't use the name or code that the image downloaded with. That orientation from the phone will follow that image everywhere with the original name.

 

If the image shows up up sideways or upside down when you open it on your PC, then open the image on your desktop, click on "Edit and Create", - Edit, - rotate image, - save as ( choose new name), save. It'll then keep that new orientation for good.

Hey Tim, That looks like a great little project and yes that engine compartment with a V8 is tighter than a mouse's ear.

I had headers on mine and they were Hooker Headers and not cheap, I recall somewhere around $400 back in the day. The headers were for a 350 Monza since in Cali the 350 was offered due to the smaller engine not meeting emissions. They were built with several slip joints on each side otherwise you wouldn't get them in. I believe to this day that these headers on this car more than anything made it sit up and beg. The stock manifolds are just cast iron logs. Hooker still makes headers for the 350 Monza but at almost $900 US dare I say you probably only paid that much for the entire project!

After it happened to me I went out and bought axle straps with the looks, ratchet straps with the spring loaded safety catch that clicks onto those straps. Even if they come loose, they can't come undone. And as an added security, I add a chain with a loadbinder (with the handle wired down) at the front so it can't roll off the back even if the other stuff all falls off. The front of my trailer has a rail across it about a foot high so it can't roll off the front.

Years ago after I came home from a POCI convention there was a picture in the Smoke Signals of a guy who had been at the convention. He was towing a really nice 64 GTO convert on his trailer, towing with a Grand Prix, about a 1983-1984 model. Yes, the tow vehicle was too light, no question. Somehow ended up rolling the whole thing and the trailer was on it's wheels with the GTO still strapped down. He had done a great job strapping it for sure, at least it prevented the car from coming loose and crashing in to someone else. I've never forgotten seeing that.
