Default Calender

She might be down but she's not out. My only other forum "hangout" is NastyZ28.com and every year they have a calender car vote and the Camaro made it in this year as a month feature car! Here is the pic that I sent in.




I have owned a lot of cars but never had one land on a calender before, kinda makes all the work worth while!

bone, i seen one do that yrs ago in a 49 ford with a hi hp sbc. my buddy used those damn mr. gasket solid mountsa nd a rubber trans mount.what they came up with is that the mount let go on the tranny and since the motor was solid in there it couldnt move and the torque from the engine let the tranny try to twist. and bang. after they went back to poly mounts up front they never had another problem.this thing was pushin close to 600 hp.if that engine could have moved just a little (rubber) tyhe engine and trans would have moved togehtr instead of just the tranny trying to move all by itself.made sense to me.but i used to smoke alot of green stuff back then too! lol. i run a tci super streetfighter with a 3800 stall in our nova. love it. but ithought it was just a mite high priced, until i priced gettin a old 350 rebuilt with the right stuff.

Dropped the trans off at Sloans Racing Transmission down in Havana today. I have known Jimmy Sloan since high school and he is one of the best racing trans builders in the state of Illinois. His specialty is Powerglides but he is just as good with any other automatic. Going to cut whats left of the bellhousing off and install a JW Ultra Bell housing, go through the rest of the trans and make it all good again. Hope to get it back in a week or two so I can get a couple more cruises out of her before the harsh reality of winter hits!

this is how we do it here in buffalo....this was 1977...the city was short handed and contacted my dads uncle who owns a construction company... so my dad and the rest of the guys were out on 16 hour days cleaning this up with loaders and anything else that could move snow. when the snow started to melt ... people noticed there cars werent where they had left them... they were piled in the snow piles... they city ordered no on street parking the night before because of the storm coming in... they told the loader guys to clear the streets.... cars and all.... lol
