Yo! Dudes! Naw, just my wife running around in her underware,...sorry. But I got your attention, didn't I!? Enjoying the heat? (damn!) More continuous heat than I can remember in over thirty-five years. And I'm sheathing a roof!! What are you guys up to? Restored TennisKid's front license plate bracket (that I purchased from him via the forum), so now the front of my Stealth Camaro is legal,...hope to draw less attention that way, after being pulled over twice in two weeks for no front license plate (!!). The more legal the appearance, the better! But my front end isn't as pretty as it was without the bracket and plate. Anyway, please post a short update,...give us some Bandimere times, or something,...Todd.

In the process of swapping into a 700r4 so hwy driving will be MUCH nicer. Last week went to wedsnday test and tune and the vortec heads I swapped this winter gave me a complete second over the old heads with no other mods! I am now a sluggish 15.32 @ 93 mph 1/4 mile at altitude, but at least I'm faster than the camaro hwy patrol (16.0~) and the Jefferson County HEMI charger (16.7~). The charger surprised me, I thought it would be faster than that, but Im sure he has a lot of weight in gear in that car. The link will take you to some pics. The Cobra is a freind of mine and he's running best of 12.6. He had some bum runs and bumped higher once or twice.

Yo! Damn! How cool! You're right about the hemi, when I was a teen, they KICKED ASS!! Thanks for the link!! I've never been,...I just go up the road to asphalt, and turn it loose when there's no one around,...ya can SEE for two or three miles! Would LOVE to run at Bandimere, but my car's transportation,...forty miles per day! And I'm 70+ miles north. I'd guess I run 16's with my 2.79:1 highway rear gear and consistently get about 14.5 mpg on 85 octane. The 350 that I built develops about 325 hp@3500rpm and 400ft/lbs torque@2500rpm,...lots of meat on the ground. I sure need to up my 2000 stall converter for one that's about 2500. But I go fast thru the quarter, and you should see the car pass on the highway! I downshift my TH350 once, and blow by at about 90 in three seconds. Dreaming of a 454 HO crate engine, but maybe not, with the present fuel situation. Todd.

Heya Todd, great teaser subject! ;)
I've been busy getting a 69 Camaro ready, and the heat is killin' us here too.
About the 454 HO, I won't bash vendors, but we have had some personal experience with one of those. (bad)

Yo! I was paging through the Summit catalog,...it's GM performance parts. Guess ya gotta trust them. The FINE running engine in my Stealth is a NAPA rebuild done "up the road" from me in Cheyenne, WY. '79 4blt main truck engine. It's been perfect, but I know of the stories of the vendors you're talking about! I remember a forum member having a painfully expensive time with a poorly done crate engine when I first joined the forum. He pretty much lost his money on, what was probably, a very expensive investment.
You guys must have the bucks,...to be able to find, and rebuild, the first gen! Hell, I only see an F body on the road every great once in a blue moon,...I must represent all of northern Colorado everyday, on the road! Despite the fact that I can't EVEN afford a first gen hulk, I can't imagine where to find these cars,...must be good finds around Denver, and out east in the farmlands,...perhaps southwest US also. Junkyards are picked clean around here, including chassis! As far as bucks go, I've only got about 5-6 grand invested in my car (other than a tremendous amount of my time!), and I'll paint it for less than $400. I've refurbished my '68 Mustang with repro parts, but it's a driver (that could ALMOST show). Still only have about $4-5,000 into it (besides a tremendous amount of my time!). Guess you're building $25,000 and $50,000 vehicles minimum, huh? Todd.

Don't Feel alone up north there a-burner, Im in Dacono. I have done everything myself to the car except for the paint and a/c. It saves a TON of cash to enjoy doing the labor yourself, I know what you mean by not being able to afford someone else to charge $60+ an hour to do something I kind of enjoy doing anyway! The Hemi chargers were a disappointment, but that car probably weighs over 4000lbs with all his gear!

Yo! SB72RS! Is that right, 4K! Damn! I hate to say they look funny,...I'm not sure how, but the look is kinda weird,...maybe 'cause I remember the REAL Charger/Superbee/GTX! I don't think I'm into remakes of the musclecars. I drive my 30 year old car daily, get 14.5 mpg on low octane, and run 85-90mph in the qmile regularly (not absolutely sure on distance measurement, so I'm guesstimating via top speed),...a good qmile for a 3500 lb street vehicle, anyway! AND I built it myself,...as with my new garage,...I built it myself (saved a ton of money, too!!). Already wetsanding my Stealth,...but I have a few cars I need to paint before I get to this one's bc/cc black with lots of clear over the top. Keep bustin' ass fixin' your own! It's the only way to really know the vehicle you're driving. Had to replace an exhaust hanger this eve! There's still a number of us mechanic/driver types out here,...we're kinda like our own click. Dacono, huh? You're fairly close! Ya think I could dare to try to organize a meet (GOD, I don't even do these things, but if I commit myself, It'll be like a duty!)? I DO have this great place and 8000 sq ft indoors! Todd.

Yo! More about the cool rod show I'm going to (near Ft Collins on Sun) later,...perhaps I'll get some pics! Todd.
