Respectable street car?

By · Comments Comments Off on Respectable street car?
What is your definition?

To me, it is a get in, go anywhere car.
It gets over 10 mpg.
Less than 3500 rpm on the highway.
Tops out over 120 mph.
Scares your in-laws.
Does at least a teen quarter mile.
Looks awesome from 30 ft away.
Has a back seat! ;-)
Can drive in the rain.
Not a TOTAL cop magnet.
Won't suffrocate you.


Please add to this list, and share your examples.

This should be great fun!

New space will fit a couple of C-bodies

By · Comments Comments Off on New space will fit a couple of C-bodies
I mentioned in another thread, I will have a new storage area on my farm, where my shop is located. I am very excited, my cousin is willing to give up some space for me. For his troubles I will install a 10x10 garage door for his car.

The great part the structure and floor are there. I will just enclose the open end. My best friend and I will work on it, in September. My plans this year are a 10x16 garage door, stud the interior block wall, insulate the walls and ceiling, new windows...

S(t)ubframe Connectors

Would anyone be kind enough to share a pic of how you connected at the T bar crossmember?

I am going to fab some up, there isn't a helluva lotta room to attatch them.

I was going to make a plate that uses the bolts in the crossmember, the sheet metal from the body mount would be sandwiched under,seems like it could work loose.

Heater hose routing

By · Comments Comments Off on Heater hose routing
On a 383 engine, the outlets for heater hoses. Is there a suction side and discharge? This is important when I'm installing my classic air. The heater control valve opens and closes but i cant get heat in car. Was wondering if hoses were crossed. Thanks

Thoughts on newly built motor oil leak

By · Comments Comments Off on Thoughts on newly built motor oil leak
So today I started my freshly rebuilt 440 and worked out the normal teething problem leaks. However, I noticed a nice oil pool on the ground at the back of the motor and can't believe this!! I'm grasping at straws here, but might a RMS leak with break in oil versus normal oil? :wtf:
