I hope this doesn't scare you guys. I'll get one of my Gran Sport later, it's a little more Hot rod than the Rambler.

I love it, I grew up not that far "out in the woods" but in the country with roads like that all over. I wanted so bad to have a street like on Leave it to Beaver, now I have one and I wish I had that dirt road again. The grass is always greener huh?

Well I fired up the Gran Sport today so I thought I would video it. Sure doesn't sound like the hot rods you guys have.

I can get the image but no video. I am just going to assume the old girl sounds just like a 502 Chevrolet with open headers.

Cool video, especially a Buick instead of a small block Chevy. Love those valve covers.

With a combination of being geared this tall.............



and the engine being built for a lot of torque at a low rpm, this one is almost quiet. This is my minimal exhaust.


Told you, pretty quiet considering those shorty cherry bombs.

sure beats that pink bike-lol. Gran sports are awesome. Funny that the guys across the way are asking us about the Gran sport emblem on the dash. We got blamed for it. Do you think body techs would take it out when we didn't even do any work in that area or perhaps the painter who painted it might have done soemthing to it? HMMMMMMMMMMMMMM??? our fault I guess...

Here is mine, 03 Mach-1 with Kenne Bell 2.8, 14lbs on 91 craptane put 560 to the rear wheels, (street tune). The car is set up for road racing. I also have tunes for 100 octane with 17lbs, 20lbs and 25lbs. My Road race tune is 12lbs with extra rich A/F and a bit lower total timing.

Well they did call it a rodeo. As tall as I'm geared, 1st and reverse is good for over 60 mph and clutch out at idle bout 12 mph.
