Default I pulled the trigger....

Hi Bob and other fellow ERA owners...

I wish to publicly thank Peter P. and my good Friend Stephen M. for helping me get in line for an ERA 427 Street car.

Details will follow once Peter gets my check and I get the chassis number....

It's taken me 8 years to get to this point.... Thank you all!!!!

Frank Johnson

Oh, I'm a Marylander and work in NoVa if any others are around. Take care!

Well... It's a street car and I just happen to have a 428 Police Interceptor date code 1966 with a NOS (new old stock not the other gas suff) Holman & Moody med riser 2x4 intake with all the proper hardware. Trans is a David Kee large spline close ratio top loader. And I built the rear and put it in the ERA cage. It's 3.54 limited slip. And the color... is the ever regal BRG.

Now, I can't yet say when I'll get the car but when I can say I'll be glad to pass it along.

Take care and thanks for the warm welcome!!!

Frank

Wicked you are buying a great product. I have never seen an ERA or had the chance to inspect one, but the consensus around here is that they are brilliant. Plus I can tell by their website that they are a superb manufacturer.

I wish I had bought one of their cars. I could have saved myself some serious $$$$$.

Default Local Folks...

Hope to see you at a grease up with it. I am trying to finish mine up ASAP. So far it's been a cake walk.

Yeah, that's it, "Brilliant" is the descriptive word.

No, no, no... I am still working on assembling this beast. I just picked up the car in late January. I have a few more weeks/months to go. I just wish I had more time.
