Looks like you're strong on your changes. I too just went thru changing someone elses racecar & making it mine. I even went as far as changing to year of the car with different tail lights, headlight decal & factory kinda looking side stripes. It looks like a totally different car yet people still say, oh that's whatshisfaces car. Grrr.

That is just a fact of life and will likely never go away...Especially if it is a well known or unique car

Well this project had a few set backs last year. Was racing my other Dart (won the Pro class at Irwindale Summit series)
Also had some health issues (I lost a kidney, with a tumor). It is now together and making a few shackdown laps.

Last night at Irwindale went 5.60@122 with a 1.22 60' to say I was happy with the combo would be an understatement!
Thanks Jim for building a good car to start with.

Very nice!!!! Good to see a Gen3 in a lighter package finally. I miss going fast and may get to do some of that myself this year. Are you going to run with the NA heads-up guys this year?


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

No , after a match race next weekend I think I am going to do a gear change and neuter it a bit. I will run the bottom of the pro bracket. I am not cool enough to run with the NA guys. ha ha

Rod, congrats on a great build! After seeing your work in person i know it is all top shelf! Before you posted the runs i figured it would run hi 8s at 150 and the 5.60 @ 122 says it definately will!

Wow! Looks great. I’m typically a fan of old school big block stuff, but this build is really cool. I’m a fan, hopefully you have a lot of success with it!

Jim I skipped putting it on the pump, had the mindset of "it will run what it runs, lets go racing"
