ok..we are at peace..i have a 74 gto i gotta build for the wifey..an old 68 firebird that ran low 10's on real street tire, not stickys, back in 1989..no traction aids at all..old HEAT is a neat car..i feel like putting it together again, as its been sitting for about 13 years..
but the real baby is my 63 tempest..the original TIN TIGR..carrys a 57-64 type pontiac rear with old style lift bars..it was an afx replica before they were popular..my wife and i rode away from our wedding in it..even had a hi speed with police on the way home, dragging tin cans..sold it in 1988, found the guy 20 years later, in oregon, and paid a fortune to get it back..i keep vacillating between resto to how it was(primitive) or updates..this car deserves a cv-1, if i can hold the power..it was a wild ride in its day..
i have 70 ss nova, 8.50 legal, with plates..and a 74 vega wagon, that also has plates, and will run 10's, or single digits with some juice..just a normal homestyle 350 in it with glide..
i ampretty well crippled up, and require assistance now to perform some duties..i have 1 good helper, and many fine friends to lend a helping hand when i need it, but stuff still doesnt get done like the old days when we would go all night to make a race..
my helper/partner's olds cutlass SX carries a 455 , 12-1 CR, solid cam, and runs on e-85..shifting at 5000 rpm, with a nos sniper kit(junk) it runs low 11's..weighs in at 4000 plus pounds, with all steel body, and a huge stereo in the trunk..i spend most of my time helping him, cuz he helps me..i see some 10's soon
this next year will hopefully be better..i had 3 pals murdered in the first 4 months..wtf..just some crazy shit going on..got a partner that was gonna run a limited 10.5 car, but his shit got funny too..i know we are in the hunt, as far as numbers go, but he just had to slow down due to the economy..
i just bought into ron watts "tribal ?????", and he instantly screwed me..so i gotta spend time hunting him down, and getting paid..thats how i got banned from PY..
my favorite cat died today, and we shared a cocktail before i buried him under the sycamore tree out front..he loved that tree..
if things do not pick up around here, i may just sell it all, and go fishing..if they do, then we will be racing well soon..
