  • June 16 2018, 06:25:55 AM Scoobum: Read a post from Chuck Leeper saying the bearing in the alternator is the same one in the belt tensioner...fo r those interested.
  • June 16 2018, 10:22:16 AM TexasT: Does Steve get a big cigar to chomp on while driving it?
  • June 16 2018, 10:22:53 AM TexasT: his obit in hr mag  [link]
  • June 16 2018, 10:51:05 AM TexasT: [link] This is why I dont like the way orgainized motorsports has gone. Back when the cars being built were what was run. Now we have the wrong wheel drive converted to rear wheel drive and toyota has a v8 that isn't even offered in any car(yeah I know they make a truck)
  • June 16 2018, 10:57:09 AM TexasT: This thing looks like fun. [link] about 2.24 you can see it launch. Imagine if it hooked.
  • June 16 2018, 10:29:16 PM Scoobum: Found this in my backyard...and it ended up in my car hauler...[link]
  • June 17 2018, 07:54:01 AM Scoobum: Norm340-Shoot me a text when you get this and I'll call you and go over the car with you.
  • June 17 2018, 08:43:36 AM Steve Wood: Nice Car, Dan!!
  • June 17 2018, 08:47:26 AM 278CIKILLER: Thank's a lot Steve!  Steve you should see the box of brand new stuff for this car, i was floored. all GM stuff in the box's.
  • June 17 2018, 09:08:09 AM 278CIKILLER: Big thank's to Brad for helping me out yesterday, A friend like no other and true G/N brother.
  • June 17 2018, 09:28:33 AM Scoobum: No problem bro. Man...we did some serious driving yesterday. 243 km's through Toronto traffic to look at the first one...and then 350 km's back through Toronto traffic to Trenton to get this one. Im beat tired...not doing nothing today.
  • June 17 2018, 09:36:51 AM 278CIKILLER: I'm just going to take it easy today also, I'm going to take a look at all the stuff in the trunk. what a car Brad.
  • June 17 2018, 09:38:38 AM Scoobum: Give me a call. Curious about the NOS stuff.
  • June 17 2018, 09:42:35 AM Scoobum: And then another 150 kms from Trenton to Dans to drop the car off...and then another 70km's back to my place.  813 km's...dayum. I'm to old for this shit...lol!
  • June 17 2018, 10:13:02 AM nocooler: I once did a weekend trip to Atlanta. We left Friday night, and got back Sunday around noon.
  • June 17 2018, 10:13:15 AM nocooler: Oh and nice car!
  • June 17 2018, 10:41:00 AM Steve Wood: Looks like your slot machine came up three cherries, Dan!  I told Brad it was a good price and you got a bonus in the trunk!
  • June 17 2018, 11:26:45 AM 278CIKILLER: Steve i think this one of the best buys i done in a long time. yea i can say i did own a stage II motor, 6.90 at 110 mph work's out to a 10.78 in the 1/4, but i was told years ago, if you got a stage motor you better have your wallet open all the time, I'm glad it's gone and so happy with this hot rod.
  • June 17 2018, 11:28:12 AM 278CIKILLER: That was 6.90 in the 1/8. I'll take a few pics of the box of stuff that came with the car.
  • June 17 2018, 01:38:49 PM Steve Wood: I think you will get more fun out of this one!
  • June 17 2018, 02:13:58 PM Scoobum: Dan had his S2 car at the track when I cracked off that 6.7. It was a race day...and I got kicked off the track. I turned my attention aon Dans car and it went 6.90 on 12 PSI on a 1.55 launch. PL kicked a TPS code...and I couldn't figure it out at the track. I'll go to my grave wondering how fast I could have got that car to go with Erics 5.7 race chip and a Translator. Wisah I had a pic of the car launching. It tricycled off the line something fierce...lol!
  • June 17 2018, 02:22:19 PM Scoobum: Funny story from that day. I'd just cracked off the 6.7...and I have Dans car off to the right of the staging lanes with the PS door open hooking up my PL on Dans ecm. The race director walks over and asks me where the black car is. I tell him back at the trailer. He yells...GOOD!!!!! I look over at Dan and say, I guess my day is done...lol!
  • June 17 2018, 08:25:47 PM 278CIKILLER: See! when Brad and I do work on peoples car's, we do it the right way and don't bull shit people and don't charge guys $50 and hour just to look at it. And tell them the truth.
  • June 17 2018, 08:59:21 PM Scoobum: 86 and 87 Olds 307 engines. How far can they go before they need a rebuikd if they're looked after properly?
  • June 17 2018, 09:03:54 PM Scoobum: I know the 307 Olds engine is woefully low on HP...just wondering about its durability. TIA
  • June 17 2018, 09:15:36 PM Steve Wood: No power but most seem to consider it very reliable.  Never had any problem with the one I had
  • June 17 2018, 09:45:36 PM Scoobum: Thanks so much.
