Been away a LONG time;
 
My name is Robert Swartz. I used to race back in 70's-80's. Still have my 66 Chevy II that was purchased in 1978. Two things drew me to this site. The first is a desire at the ripe young age of 53 to begin the resurrection of this old car. The second is, I have been looking for an 80's roller Mustang to build me a new bracket car.

A little more background. I had two 1967 Mustangs and a Pinto (imagine that'll get a couple snickers) that I raced in the 70's. Back in those days, a couple of my running buddies were Toby and Kenny Meek, if you look up the old record books for both NHRA-IHRA, they held a couple of national recors and a few class wins in both Stock and Modified Production.

I started my Nova in 1979. Due to a stint with Uncle Sam, a friend of mine raced the car for a few years until I got home in 1984. We raced it on and off till 1988. Then marriage, job changes, mortgages, other hobbies and such dominated my life.

Hope there's room for somebody that's behind the curve and has alot of catching up to do,

Hi,
My name is Rudy, very cool site! Had my '68 Camaro up for sale or trade for the last 6 months, trying various media outlets, all of which absolutely stunk!! Then comes along RacingJunk!! WOOOOOOOHOOOOOOO! Now I am in my FIRST dragster and the Camaro has a new owner! Although I only traded, I DID make an honor payment and met a really good guy that described his car to the "T". I am vey happy!! I have filled out the profile if anyone wants to know who I am and where I am from. The only cofrontation I have had on here was from some fellow named Eric a.k.a. olds48. Anybody know him? Just kidding Eric, glad I got a response out of you, it makes me glad someone read my post and replied to it, didn't waste any time smacking me though!! LOL! No problems with E, heck of a nice guy, although he drives a OL...., just can't get that word across my lips!!

Thanks again!! I will be here from now on!!



1. How come I see some folks on here with no profile and have been on here for YEARS?

2. Why do these same folks not pay any honor payments?

3. We have been on Ebay for 8 years selling stuff (99.3). Why can't sellers be required to have a verified PayPal account to sell? You do not HAVE to pay thru Paypal and incur the fees, but you will have an outlet to go back to if you are screwed out of your dough if you do use them.

Anyway,,just my 2 cents worth.

Semper Fi!

olds48 03-03-2008 07:30 AM

:D :D :D :D My Olds is actually more of a mutt.It's a 48 Olds with a 496 Bbc,Th4oo and a 9" Ford(pardon my french,hate to use 4 letter words like that).But it is and always will be Chevy powered.Who else makes motors?
Guess I shouldn't have messed with a leatherneck :shock: I know what you mean about honor payments.I was always curious,if I put out a wanted ad,and I end buying what I was looking for,how do I go about paying an honor payment?

Hey my name is Mike. Been checking this site out for a while to get back into drag racing and just picked up a little tube chasis monza with a small block about a month ago. Taking it to the strip next weekend. Can't hardly stand waitng. Been out of it for about 18 years and man has it all changed. Little nervous about driving this little car being that it is quite a bit faster than anything I ever had. This is a GREAT site!

Newbie from Texas here...
 
Hello,

My name is Michael and I am from Houston Texas (actually Tomball).

After a multi year hiatus from turning wrenches and having my own pet project, I have decided its time for a new toy.

Having restored multiple Camaro's in my past I am trying to venture over to the sister line of the F-Body. I am looking for a 1975 Trans Am project car, I have always liked the big black (ugly) bumpers for some reason. Besides with the opera rear window and these bumpers its a unique year.

So I decided to join this forum to broaden my search possibilities, plus tap into an enormous knowledge base.

Thanks for having me as part of your site, I look forward to being a contributing member.

Michael
