The one that he beat up the Buick with

http://www.hotrod.com/eventcoverage/hrdp_0702_hemi_vs_buick/results.html

Wow what a great way to kill myself , Ill install this may as well be Pro Stock motor in my sappy little GTX ...

The Kids starting College , I have one unfinished project ..

But this FAST class is so cool ..

So Ill just drop in this motor complete in my Kframe and whip some but ..

Ha Ha .. Everything is so Easy ..

So -- it wasnt as easy as I thought ,

The transaction ended up being a little skewed ..

( I didnt buy it from Dave )

It didnt look anything like the picture ..

So Dudek cleaned things up for me a little bit.

Meanwhile how is my turd car gonna hold up to all this HP .

So in went the cage .

i hear you on the coldness. Last winter i was next to outside and used air tools to grind was horrible, you freeze your hands off. I was almost relieved when i would get burnt welding as i would distract me from the coldness

Great work, I like that color. My '71 SSP is GA4, I like it!! Mine is ready for a repaint though, it's pretty faded.

So the cars practically together ..
I have a month to kill before my new kframe comes in.. I figured I d patch the rear quarters..

My painter came over and said he needed some fast cash .. He wants to straighten shoot the whole car .. So much for my survivor scheme ..

If the car wasnt as rugged, I woudla left it

So from last Sunday til today I prepped the car ..

It is friggin cold in the barn , but the cars going to get a new paintjob .

By the way . you guys with winches got it made ..

Whielk I was letting my beer muscles relax .. I figured Id take a shot to let you know how good you have it with that Warn winch .

Strange thread - kinda hard to follow

So, you had the orange one, then bought the blue one and painted it grey? Which engine is going where?

Looks like they had enough paint left over to put a stripe on the wall. J/K, looks great!! I'll have to cruise up and check out your collection now that I'm off for the winter and extremely bored... as long as you and Quad don't haze me.

Looks good Andy!
At first glance I thought he was doing more than one car.

The kframe and hemi slid in like planned , finally a level engine ..

I still had to pull the valve cover on the passenger side .. I have to assume they did that in the factory , i just dont see how the steering box would clear without shifting the engine to the passenger side as far as possible ..

rear end went in ,
wheels on
drive shaft safety hoop

The hemi kframe pushed my engine back one whole inch .. arruzzas mounts would not clear the battery tray , and neither did shumakers ..

I really thought my car was tweaked ..
Nothing really beats this real hemi kframe ..

I don't blame you. By the time he's back you can have an AWFUL lot done on the rest of it! It's shaping up pretty nicely by the looks of it!

The least you can do is go out a buy a digital camera and put that disposable camera in the trash.... It is a HEMI not a vega, get some good pictures of it not ones that look like you are taking them through a fish tank.....

I know the feeling, you just need to wake up earlier or make sure your invited guests are interested in your project.
It's coming along nice, where are you planning on racing on the 25th?

I had to do all that too, while finding excuses to sneak in the Masters and the Rangers game. I did use the dogs to get in the garage to do some quick things throughout the day. If it wasn't a challenge, would it be as much fun

Come on already! Get that thing out in the sunlight where we can see it. And a few smokey burn out pics would be nice too.

Car looks great. Can't wait to see the time results and magazine coverage of the FAST and PURESTOCK events.

I have a Ralley Red 71 GTX with AG/auto that I wanted to do this too. Even picked up a 71 Hemi block.

My A12 is in line 1st though.

Tom Had a great weekend without showing off some burnouts , However when everyone left the track Dudek showed me how it should be driven ..

I need some instrumentation to get it perfect ..

and because I have to make stuff difficult , Ill have the laptop next to me showing me my lack of fuel pressure through the LM1 ... I cant believe I may need to put two pumps in



I think this is the nicest pic Ive ever taken .

Wish I wouldnt have had the fuel pressure gage ducttaped to the window , can anyone photochop that out ?

havent posted since maple grove been up to my ankles in work , family , etc ..

since maple grove , i simplified my fuel system wih a deadhead aeromotive pump repiped and seems to work ok

installed a nordskopf fuel gage that can trigger the kenne belle if the fuel pressure gets low and triggers a lite on the tach .

msd in the heater box

put in a kenn belle boostapump to the msd and fuel pump

new/used leaf springs with front lowering hangers

I figured that i would have a baseline to start from at carlisle so i didnt ballast the trunk .


Smoke all the way down the track .



it was fun though .. so i hope anyone doesnt think that a killer hemi and a nice paint job will get you a trophy .

lots of r &d left ...

Not too many participants at the race for the shootout ... come on guys use these cars what they were built for !

real ag setup on this one ...

but you can cut your own hood and get parts from mike at http://www.beaparts.com/

OR http://www.n96airgrabber.com/

search for wilsons retorations also ..

you can probably get Everything , Original you need

for less than 3K ( expensive )

Or probably less than 1600 NIC hood , you can modify a flat hood ..

This is a picture of an air grabber factory

If youre creative with sheetmetal , you can definitely cut your own hood.

4080 - 225 ( )


Oh and Tom Cannon smoked me - three times technically ,

actually I smoked myself ..

The best I could do was 12 and small change ..
Dave ran it to 11.84 for me on a hot lap .

I have a lot of things to square away ,

Best Time I had in a while .. Martin was a blast.

If I didnt spend so much time cooling the car down between runs -coulda made a zillion passes during test and tune ..

Martin was a great time .. The track wasnt as sticky as we wished but , it was fun ..

Nationals came and went , cant find the time slip but car went a 11.80 something .. and it WAS HOT out. You cant just put a big motor in and expect to go fast.
So after watching and learning for the past two years , I hope to see consistent 11.50's with a few weight savings and some winter modifications to the engine and some more camo so Mr Cannon can become VERY familiar with GTX tailite bezels.
( If I had Toms rt's , I could put a 440 back in it , I need some serious seat time, so if I cant react quickly enuff, I hope some more HP and weight will smoke the competition )
I have some serious weight saving strategies for the winter. Hope to be skinny in the spring.
Wish I could play some more this year , But have to get to work on the Sunroof Car and pay attention to some other junk. To be continued Spring 2011.

Killing some timee here , well time flies, more family health/funeral(s),etc issues put a damper on play time. Im trying to be supportful and pay attention to home stuff and figures - weve also been buried at work.

update 2011
Decided winter 2010 that the engine had to come out.
Dave built a more aggressive motor for me and It worked out well. Except you NEED race gas to go anywhere .. IF you want to play on the street . Two times out a year is not enuff fun.
If you want to chance driving a race motor on the street for a distance .

So it runs good but i couldnt leave well enuff alone.

New 8 3/4 with a spool
New cal trak monoleafs

The car is now an animal. More than ever before.

So I Get to carlisle, and spun the balencer. Spent WAY too much time realizing what had happened. Couldnt guess at the timing , BUT I decided to run it anyway ....

Guess who i get paired up with again fOr the slippery 1/8th , Tom c. ....... Almost killed myself on that track.

Couldnt get the car to run right and guessed on the timing. So i didnt abuse it.
( when i gOt home and swapped dampeners i realized i was at 5 deg initial- maybe 12 total lol... )


So as I look at my orange boat anchor that needs loads of race gas to run .

And a shiny convertible with blown head gaskets (
figures special order pushrods now necessary , knew I shouldnt have rebuilt the heads . )
(im sure Ill have it together at first snowfall

I guess Ill have to suffer and beat up on my rusty challenger ... Got the GTX's Polyglas' on it and they suck at high speed but they're fun for burnouts ..

Snow is coming .. gotta go drive before it starts snowing ...

MAybe if the weather holds .. Ill be able to squeak one 1/4 this year , If not - Im in suspense for a whole winter .

BUT Chapter THREE ( MAYBE i SHOULD CALL IT 4 ) coming to a beginning ... Another distraction, but a keeper .. This one WILL be streetable at all times ..
