I've had it happen to me three or four times. The first being in college when some crackhead used my card to buy a dial up internet subscription for his house from NetZero. They gave me his address, name, and phone number, what a phone call that was.

I had to cancel a Visa card not long ago because Visa would flag my fuel purchases out of state and lock my card down (think late night, tank empty, trailer and car attached), but were letting coffee and mini mart purchases go through from 2,500 miles away.

I don’t follow pro stock like I used to but still follow your progress. It’s a lot tougher with only the three qualifying passes and recently you have only been getting two because of an issue. What happened to the second car that was supposed to be there at this race. I thought I read you would have both cars. Good luck and thanks for updating us.

Maybe if you're streaming it, but on Motortrend TV it's the one with the 66 D-100.
That's what was broadcast tonight on TV.

Anybody know of a VERY GOOD/reputable carburetor shop that does race prep (not just rebuilding but true race prep) on Carter carburetors? Thanks...wb

No kidding the thread is about a 1971 Barracuda with a shaker hood - and whether it is fake or not because most anything that comes across the web these days that is very odd in the world of mopar must be a fake. Any regular 1971 E body with a factory shaker is what would be discussed in a normal discussion like this as it digresses.

My apologies for posting a 1971 Challenger Convertible 383 4bbl N96 shaker car taken in 1981 at the University of Connecticut in early November as this thread is just about a 71 Barracuda and whether it is a fake or not with the shaker hood whistling

If he is planning on doing this for a while (3 to 8 yrs)longer he should make sure the sport car sizes he wants to hauls will fit in the trailer he wants to use and still have small living area to use on his trips to stay away from hotels and motels and the related problems parking a big car trailer around them as well as vandalism to the cars and trailer work twocents

When I was looking at GC's last year I found the best value was the Altitude. The trinkets added to the limited didn't match the price increase seeing as the altitude already had alloy wheels, leather, the big screen, 4x4 etc

And the new one

I only thought ballasts went totally out when bad.


They can do that, but also have a poor connection between terminal & coil inside.
Term. are brass, coil wire (nichrome maybe) & are just crimped together.
They get hot & that connection can degrade over time.

your numbers don't look right. Near as i can tell from the parts manual, it should be 45.85" with 7290 joints or 45.79 with 7260 joints. Are you measuring center to center? Your buddy might have a 904 trans or a smaller rearend than yours. Either would need a longer driveshaft than yours. Even spring arch, ride height makes a difference.

Safest way is to measure what you need and go with it. Lot of tolerance in these old cars and over 50 years of people interchanging parts that are not exactly correct.
Or not even close to correct. runaway

I wish the 240 heads were available when I built my 493. I would go with a hydraulic roller if it's in the budget but a solid flat cam would do the job just make sure you get the EDM style lifters. I have both a Victor and an RPM for my car but I like the RPM better for nice off idle seat of the pants feel. I prefer a Holley style carb but my 800 AVS ran pretty well with the RPM but my plugs showed a lean condition with the OTB tune. I went a little too much with my new cam, 248/ 620 makes nice power over 4000 but it's a little soft down low but the 4-speed helps with a 4.10 gear. I'm running a QuickFuel 1050 annular body and it's really responsive if you decide on a Holley style carb.

First gen Dakotas are getting harder to find and I've noticed the price going up on them. dakota





Up here in the land of road salt, the front fenders, cab floors, and box sides are falling off the old Dakotas, leaving a somewhat decent frame and drive train. I've built off of 5 Dakota frames, haven't hurt a good Dakota yet.
I have another one here, front fenders are junk, the right side was side swiped, the gas gauge doesn't work and it has a ratchet strap holding up the gas tank. It has 135K miles on a nice V6 auto trans, extended cab, short box that runs and drives great, would make a great work truck. I'll be lucky to get $1500 for it, as is. The decent frame & functioning drive train is worth almost that much for someone wanting to build a cheap hot rod.

Doesn’t work for me either, but I got the mega ban back in 2020 for sharing the Front Line Doctor’s video. Probably on some FBI list because of it too.

It will make an air cooled engine run cooler. Noticed that after back to back to back oil changes going between Dino and syn.
