    That would be my luck.

    So far so good tho..

    Thanks
    I had a 1963 Grand Prix with a a 428 (or was it a 421?) with dual carbs and it would eat those 409's alive. Hmm... you can tell I'm getting older when I can't even remember the specs of my once favorite car.

    421/. They ran pretty good. There were a couple 409's around here that ran really good too... for a while.

    Yep! Nothing against Cheys. My first car was a 1959 Ford Galaxy 500 XL stock 289 (I think)? And I could never beat that old 1958 Chevy with the stock 283 (I think)? It always nosed me out at the end. OK, I'm done. Good luck.

    Well, I had a Chevy Corvair Monza Spyder (two of them actually) until we had our first child. Ran out of room quickly after that.

    Hey, I remember them! They were somewhat of a novelty as I remember because all the other cars were still so big. Goodnight all!

    You cant leave yet, we're not done racin'..there has to be a way I can pull into cyberspace with a 63 409/409 and you whip in with the 421 and we can go at it :-) LOL

    Sounds like a cool corvair ZTruker...turbo , yes?

    At the moment I run an '09 Challenger with a gen lll 426 Hemi and it runs good for as heavy as it is, 4500 with me in it...like the old old days I guess. It's a blast !

    Back to the subject I happen to remember that last ordeal I had with OTL download also wiped out my system restore right off the bat as well. I wish the windows folks would see this and at least think about a patch of some kind to protect restore, somehow.

    Funny how I have the exact opposite problem, my system restore turns on unexpectedly even though I've turned it off in the Control Panel for my SSD.

    I have to go into Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) to completely disable system restore off my SDD since I use 3rd party software for backup and restore on my secondary mechanical hard drive.

    Yes, you might whip me now because I can guarantee you that I cannot slam those power shifts as fast anymore; however, I think I made a slight mistake when I described my 421 w/dual carbs. Actually, it should have read a 421 w/dual "quad" carbs. I can remember once when a Chevelle 396 and a GTO 383 were lining up to race from a light... I was sitting in back of them (right in between), and when the light changed, I split those two babies in half and zoomed straight in between them and made it through the next green light before they had to stop for the red. I sorta laughed as I observed them in my rear view mirror. Please understand that this behavior was not correct in any way, shape or form; however, when you are young..... this was also in a remotely deserted area in the middle of the night. Again, no excuse other than the vigor of youth. However, once I finally grew tired of the gas expense, I moved to a 1964 Pontiac Bonneville which had a huge rear seat that was great at the drive-in movies every Saturday.... OOPS, don't wanna go there...

    Hi Nemix,

    I also have noticed that behavior where my system restore periodically gets turned back on for reasons unknown. BTW, do you use any 3rd-party cleaning software?

    I found the weatherchannel app in my downloads that gave me fits and ran it at virus total. 4 av's picked up infection, Avast and the other big guys missed it...huh.
