    I don't know why it is but there are very, very few shows within a 50 mile radius of here, and not one single cruise-in type deal. At one time seems like there was one every other weekend during the...

    That is a common problem, mainly with Ford's but also on Chrysler Hemi and to a lesser extent, 4.7L. Around here what happens is, the manifold starts to rust between the head and itself. The rust...
