Well, I'm a newbie to this forum. I thought I have been here before, it looks familiar, but here goes anyways....

My name is Marc, I'm presently building a Pro Street 1940 Plymouth Coupe, I've owned it since 1984 and I tore it apart for a re-do about 4 years ago. I'm hoping to have it on the road for next summer, but I have LOTS of work to do.......

Newbie description

Hello All,
I'm a newbie to the site. How y'all out there? Well me I've got a 69 Volkswagon bug with close to 2500cc's chromed out with Dual 48 Webers. I run the deck lid mostly it is a lot of chrome. I started the car with a ground up when my buddy went into the Marines after we graduated High School 1996 San Diego,CA. The night before he left he hadn't sold it and I traded him a 4 foot blacklight a cd walkman and a Jerry Maguire VHS tape.. basically the junk on my back seat for the pink. I would have done a ground up on something a little more classic.. a Ford but I was 2 broke at that age to do justice to anything beyond a Volkswagon. My neighbor and HS buddies dad did a ground up on his 2 Ford 40's a Coupe and a truck. Anyway I'm off track of introducing myself. My little red has a tan leather interior and (6) Heritage Gold VDO gauges throughout with gold plated chrome on the inside and the shifter rod, e-brake, and emblemed are 24k gold plated.. that was a * of a job plating the shifter rod...chrome is easy steel well I said it already...my tranny has been geared tall on my fourth like it was a fifth for mileage and speed. The paint is red three coats with 3 clear.. all I could afford.. and I am finishing the stereo this winter with an Alpine IVA DVD Deck with the much discussed ACAP601Q 6 Farad Capacitor...old school Fosgate chrome power amps. (1) 1000 pushing a 10" Team RF Sub and (2) 500's powering the 4 sets of Kappa 60.5cs Infinity Component Speakers crammed into the hood. It's almost 2500cc ported and polished by my bud's and I but the dual 48 carbs give it the push. I'll take 99% of races to 60mph up to 30-40 mph the front's are off the ground and then 80% to 75mph but around their till 100mph if they've got anything tuned up they should and do take me...mostly my wind drag verus HP but they won't get anything off the line.. well not yet.. he he.. that's me it's nice to be here.. I'm going to work on some pictures while I'm in San Diego for the Shania Twain concert this week were my bug is.. I live in Los Angles, California.
Regards,
Jeremy

Hey Red 69 Volks Sleeper, I have a 69 bug too and I also have a 89 vw jetta.

Well I'm a vw person but I also like:
Old or New School Rods 'n' Customs, Gassers,
Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, Wacky Show Cars,
Drawing and photoshopping cars, Monster Garage, Chopper Bikes, Radical Customs, Wierd, Rock and Oldies Music,
Rollercoasters, cool and wacky Modern inventions
and Loud Engines.

Well I'm a mixed breed of interest for old and new cars.

Pretty informative! I haven't had the chance to set up a photo album yet, but if you wanna see my cars, you can see them here . This seems like a really nice place to hang around.

We are currently running a 377 (400/350 crank) on a 1/4 mile dirt track with our open wheel modified. I was wondering if anyone has tried a 400 chevy smallblock with 327 crank in it? I was thinking long rod short stroke would really pull the RPM's and have horsepower but low on torque so it wouldn't spin the tires so bad. Traction is not our friend on the dirt tracks. Just looking for any feedback. Thanks

Got any pics of your modified dirt guy? I recently went to a chassis set-up class, which was mainly geared for the dirt guys (I run paved) the guy running it used to be a head guy for "Dirtworks" race cars, and now runs his own, just can't remember his last name, Scotty something. Anyhow I believe th 377's and 400's are the engine of choice for dirt aren't they? Just out of curiousity what style rear do you run 3 link, 4, Z-link etc. Just been looking into building my own dirt car. I think your time, and money would be better spent making the car hook, I believe a good set-up would be most beneficial.

Bonuts my pics are too big to put on here. Or at least that's what they keep telling me everytime I try to put them on. We have a local built car......RC Motorsports......stands for Robert Crump.....open wheel dirt modified. Well built car. I took all of the leaf spring mounts off (ran very well as a stacked leaf/mono leaf with coil spring) and made it a swing-arm/Z-link. After helping local hot shoe Tim Lance with his Rayburn late model I knew this was the set-up for me. We have yet to run it as we just swapped stuff over this week. But I feel real good about it as I have some understanding after my adventures helping the no#2 in the Nation in the Nascar Short Track Series. They paid him a cool $24,000 for his efforts. Back to the motors........I like the 377 most of the time but with this swing-arm setup I should be able to handle more horses so I'm going to try a 406 until summer hits and the tracks go dry-slick. I just thought a destroked 352 might really be a screamer. Rev it to the sky and hold on. LOL I'd like to try this smaller stroke deal because I think it would really be easy to hook up and yet have enough horses with good heads and cam to still pull at the end of the straight. Just looking for some feedback.

If you choose the route of building your own car you had better have a good welder and a lot of knowledge on the suspension geometry. I've been at it 21 years and still don't have it all down. LOL

Very nice. Love the look of the modifieds. In the next two years I plan on racing a late model, or with the IMCA mods. Even looked into a legends car. Instead of building my own car we might just buy a used chassis out of the US to start on. I currently run a Hobby Stock, or Sportsman to some class up here. With a few races in a Late Model.
