and you believe that chief just has a "regular" Pontiac motor??? lol



Originally starting out as a Pontiac man I got quite a chuckle when he said that....

And to think all those years I could have bolted a couple turbos on my 455 and ran 4.0 in the 1/8!!!!

Well, considering you can take the 455 out of say, a ‘75 Grandville, and other than the pistons( bore size) put every piece of that engine into/onto chiefs engine.... there is nothing exotic about it.. it will except all stock factory pontiac parts... he’ll, it even has pontiac edelbrock heads.. the same ones anyone can buy..

grinPretty accurate assessment. up

Chuck with the mouth really ruins the show. The cars, (my opinion), are ridiculous to even have the word "street" attached to them. No prep, lol, how about a show about no slicks, and no power adders?

Otherwise, Ryan Martin, Daddy Dave, Monza, and Jerry Bird all seem like down-to-earth, normal guys. I watch it if I happen to come across it. smile

I am not a fan of a few of the guys and all the trash talking they do. However, when I was at PRI last year, I always knew if a stand had one of them doing signings. The queue was enormous. Despite their short comings, they have certainly generated a lot of interest in Drag Racing, so that can't be too much of a bad thing.

That is only if he runs no prep.
Other times, he mixes some nitro.

Chief or Chump does it really matter? Good or bad the show loves the attention. Just tune in is all they care about. Ratings is the name of the game. With that said IMO any car shows are better then none at all.

Who’s the guy standing around the car with the muscle shirt on? That wasn’t Bob was it. Lol.
That actually was me. We won a lot of rounds over the season-made it to two semi's and one final. We finished Tied with Robin for 6th overall. Our goal going into the season was top 5 so we didn't quite make it but we did give Lutz a round in Denver. That was the difference. Watch tonight. We went to the 3rd round in West Palm.

Chief beat Vixen because the p/s header collector blew almost in half. They made that pass with less than half the boost they had programmed for.

Yes, he owns the car now up
I sold him a BB 440 powered Dart a long time ago, but I don't think we have met in person shruggy
We have met, Cab. I also either bought from you or sold you an 8 3/4 third member besides the Dart...which my brother still owns. It's now a B-1 headed 493.

This is no DRCE engine, or a 481x. He’s doing it the hard way with good results.



I understand that, and yes I know its impressive...BUT on the show he said it was a 455 that came in the car...LOL SO now all of America thinks its nothing...lol


I don't know many racers that are honest about the combination they have. I'm sure JJ's "Ole heavy" doesn't weigh 4920 lbs either

Butler works very closely with Chief and it may be a Pontiac but it's an expensive one. Not that Chief pays anything, though. It's close to 500".

Bob did you see that they bumped the Norwalk race into October next year because of the bracket finals being ran there next year. Just a heads up so you can plan your schedule


1970 Duster
Edelbrock headed 408
6.143@110.85 mph
9.73@135.05 mph shifting at 6700 RPM
422 Indy headed small block
5.982@112.56 mph
9.42@138.27

Livin and lovin life one day at a time
