almost hitting deer!

I'd say in our neck of that woods, that's pretty true. A friend of mine that used to hunt with me was talking about this the other day at work. We commented on how many times we'd sat in the woods...

Remember the 70's van craze?

All too well. Have to admit, they were cool party wagons. Oddly enough, the girls loved'em. Had a buddy that had one of the really cool conversion vans with all the...

Re: It's about time for me to take up DEER HUNTING!!

Ahh, Tod, my friend, this is what we get for living in the great state of Indiana. I live south of you and dodge deer constantly.

For the record, I used to try and hunt the critters. Seems I...

The car doesn't suck. Those wheel combinations have no appeal to me.

Here's the rub, it's a new day. Many (maybe not all) of the new generation have different ideas of what THEY like.

2 lane blacktop

A real good piece of trivia to this movie. That 55 Chevy, it's the same car that Harrison Ford was driving in American Graffitti.

Another side note, you could stuff a BB Chevy in one of those cars...

You get the real before and after look with those. Poor old car still has a lot of work left to be done.

Old 66 Chevy II

I know I haven't posted much to this forum in a long while.

If anyone cares, just a little update. Getting anything done to this car has taken much longer than I would have desired. I suppose for...

tough times?

For me, going on the 2nd year at work with no raise. I'm still working steady, so, there is a silver lining, for the moment at least. I've seen hard times before but this time is different. In the...

Thanks man,

I had someone inform me that a 15x8/9 wheel with a 5 inch back spacing is the ticket for a 9" slick. I'm in the ballpark.

2nd Gen F-body - wheels and tires for NHRA/IHRA Stock class

I know most on here run either brackets or index style cars. I also am aware many are cars running stock suspensions. My project car is a 1979 Firebird (actually a 10th anniversery Trans Am). I'm...

old slicks

Hey Tod, if I get my 66 done, he could have the 14x32's I have right now. All he's got to do is come get them.

ha ha ha!!!!

Or like I've done. Built a 24 x 36 shop out front. It was the flattest and best place to put it. As I tell people, I hid the house. Imagine, someday, someone will come to look at this place and just...

This is used at the school level as well. I heard this so many times with my boy, "the parents don't do enough in the way of discipline". Their view of discipline is a time out and negotiating, with...

first pass

First trip down the track. June, 1973, my old 67 Mustang automatic car. They stuck me in D/MP because I had a Holley Carburetor on it. Otherwise it was a bone stock 289. I got destroyed.

Well, after a trying couple of weeks, my friend, Larry Anderson and I finally got to work on the car again.

Re: Nova Progress

Mark, it's the same as yours. It's a 66 with the 67 front end. I've had this car for over 30 years. It's spent the last 20 shoved in the corner of the various garages of the places I've lived in....

Car movies

Anybody on here remember an old movie called "Hot Rods to Hell"? It came out in 1966-67, somewhere in that time frame. I was 12-13 years old, saw it at the drive-in. It was on TV, 8-10 years later,...

stupid things in garages

Yeah, I can relate to this. Back in the 70's, when I had REALLY long hair. I was working on an old car out in Dad's garage. A combination of grease, transmission fluid and dirt in matted long hair,...

putting a dog down


Never an easy answer to this. My brother in-law had to put down a mastive(sic). A once big ol' friendly pup. He got mean, too big to handle. He bit his boy, similar situation. His kids...
