Nightfire Funny how people think its easy to drive 9 sec. runs....dude have you ever even driven 12's or 11's? You'll hold on tight for sure. 10 secs already you'd pee your pants, seriously....

gothrod87 Um trying to stay open minded but if you want to run nines.....buy yourself something you can ahndle....i think a nine second car for someone of your "EXPERIENCE" will get away from you and youll end up in the wall.start low and get some drive time under your belt or your gonna get hurt real quick,thats just my two cents,

ummm... sure, but it'll just be my 12 second tow vehicle for my (possible) 81 mercury crappy RS, which IF I get it will have a turbo 300 straight six, or a twin turbo 4.2 v6 with 3.8 heads.

I STILL think i can go 9's and use it as a weekend toy.....
btw, there's only one me, but there is another troll around, possibly with split personalitys, I heard it might be 90, but I ain't sayin anything about anyone, and it might not be him...... pepole like to talk.

sel2real maybe he wants to go 9sec 1/8mi? that sounds closer to reality than a street driven 9sec 1/4 galaxie!

right

Ain't no way. I own a 70 Galaxie and let me tell you from first hand experience there is no way a Galaxie with any piece that came from the factory will run close to 10 let alone 9. I'd like to get mine in the 14s. But will prolly scrape it for a lighter car.

Now to answer your question, getting 9's is VERY tough for a heavy car like yours. Obviously stock engine wont do (without throwing a ton of money at it). Like mentioned earlier, strip EVERYTHING untill you only have a bodyshell left. Then you'll have to tub it, pro street rear end setup (lotta $$$) driveshaft loop is obligatory same with a cage. Basically you'll have to spend a lot of money and time to get into 9's. Probably not worth for a car like a 67 Galaxie, but hey its your car. Have you ever driven 9's or close to it?



Mike
Nope, this guys a troll. Thirty something posts in one day, and all of it is bs. Look at how many other threads he started today. But be warned, each of his threads is a total waste of time. Some of them have been sent to the dump already. Hopefully the rest aren't too far behind.

Mike,
He claims he is only 12, so I doubt he has even driven at all.

Based on his posts and his attitude, he has zero credibility. Furthermore, it is hard to believe a 12 year old has a 67' Galaxie and "a 7500+ rpm 427 clevor and e4od waiting for it, ... "
If he really had this 67' Galaxie, it would go a long way for him to post a picture of it with a dated sign that says "Hotrodders".

That's JMO. Ed

poncho62 It's a lot easier to shed weight than to make more horsepower.

the gutting isn't quite necessary, instead of shaving 1000 pounds, I'll just need 100 more horse, so shouldn't I just concentrate on saftey, power, and hook instead of weight?
