more about me

Well now that I am done installing the engine in my truck I can tell you more about me.I have been around cars mt whole life i grew up here in Mesa AZ . my first vehicle was a 1978 k10 with a 6 inch lift.I loved that truck to death until my dad sold it out from under me.Man was I pissed but not to fear as six months later I was the proud new owner [and will be buried in the thing too] of a 1972 Plymouth road runner.It has a 400 bored and stroked to 472 and has a decent build to it but as all dream cars are is a continuous work in progress.I have ran it down the 1/4 a couple times with solid times of 12.85. I also have a 1985 ford ltd lx I recently purchased for four hundred dollars.I have heard ford only built 3260 of these cars between the two years they were made. I also have a 1976 chevy c10 with a rebuilt 1972 lt1 out of a ss chevelle.This is my current project and will be in this family for a very very long time.So to sum it up for ya I am a Mopar man who will drive a chevy and owns a ford because it was rare and cheap. Confused ? yeah me too!

well I oned and raced my mopar for 13 years, made a ton of money with it,sold it to build a roadster, a few years after that I had cancer sergury and got afu from the morons cutten on me and my bank account.I kept the motor from my duster,340+.060,13.8:1 cr..640 lift [email protected] roller. over a hundrad hours of head work on & off the flow would fly.I kept the stock J converter in it for street racing so as not to kill the tires.5:38 gear,2x4 polished tunnel ram with 2 830 cfm hollys done on the flow bench to equalize all bbl's.dana 60,latterlink,sliderpivots.10 point cage,2x3 frame,all aluminum from my butt back,& probably one of the first contoured all aluminum dashes, with the direct connection logo bead rolled into it, (and we also built race & street cars, frame,bent cages,did all aluminum pannels,bead rolled everything) and this was a dialy driven street car . the only car I owned,so it had to be reliable and it was. but with the stock converter it would only run 6.62 in the 1/8th. No 1/4 mile track around was only 618 hp, but it would pull up top real hard so the stock converter was a blessing on the street,with the 19.5x33 mickey street pro's it go about 60 feet and then feal like you hit the No2 , I doo miss that car, never should of sold it.and sold it for resold about 3 years ago for 36000 I was told.with a new paint job& mild big block,oh well now I'm into the vw bug seen .big motors& lots of trick parts. mainly because the parts are so light I can pick them up with out any problem, I still have most of all of my big v8 parts but there just too heave ever since the moron dr got done with me. and the bug is pretty quick & fun to drive. take care & keep that road runner alive and in the family. my brother has a pile of big block mopar stuff,b1 heads,edelbrock victor race heads,procomp coppy heads,jessel valve train.I dont know why ?he will never use any of it,and his dragster(rail) has a 496 BBchevy I built for it with a 871 supercharger. but thats ok. my roadster is set up for my 340 or my 572 chevy.
