"90% complete"

I remember a saying, something like, " The first 90% of a project takes 90% of the budget, and the last 10% takes another 90% of the budget."

If I ever decide I need a Jensen, it'll be the FF, with Ferguson all-wheel drive to put down that 440's power...

Well, the 72 Interceptors came with a 440 that was detuned to 290 HP, so its possible that THIS 383 has more HP than the 440 that was originally in this car. biggrin
