That was the days before 2 and 3 step limiters. You dropped the clutch at whatever rpm it got to before the hit most of the time in our case it was over 10000 and you shifted when it felt and sounded right. We broke alot of parts but had alot of fun.

Those were the days. The last engine we build for a 68 camaro had Carea I-beam rods, Forgetrue, buttoned and knurled pistons, General Kinetic Cam, Joe Mondello Heads, Lakewood flywheel with Lakewood "blowproof" bell housing, Jere Stahl headers, Edelbrock tunnel ram with two Holleys setting cross ways. Rear traction system was leaf springs on a 12 bolt chev with a steel plated mounted between the back plate and the housing. A plow link from a John Deere tractor, which was adjustable was attached to the frame and the plate. The transmissions were Muncie or Borg Warner T-10. The sliders and syncronizers were cut to remove every other tooth. This was before Dick Moroso started making the cut sliders.

Wind this baby to 10k and slip your foot of the side of the clutch pedal, carry the wheels and pull the next gear at 10k-11k.

On my post above (#81), does anyone notice anything unusual about the '55 Chevy (2nd car from the top)?

I remember M/P well---kind of amid-point between Gassers & S/S cars I always thought. The lower class cars , E or F/MP were always impressive. I never saw such small, high-winding motors. AHRA tok it a step further by breaking 'em down into "Formula" 1-4 depending on the intake system. Motion Performance had a killer Camaro for A/MP, about the closest thing to a P/S a hobby racer could get.
As I recall the formula for the small (260-287 cu. in) motors was a something like (rounding off numbers here) 4in bore or less & not much (if at all) a 3in. stroke, .600-.700 lift roller cam, extensively pported heads, an Edelbrock tunnel ram, 660 Holleys, perhaps a geardrive, fueled by 2 Holley "blue pumps" hooled to a M-22, Toploader or A-833 trans & a Dana with at least 5:13 gears. Back East Truppi/Kling was the shop to go to for Chevys although there were ALOT of good shops that build you a M/P engine. The really cool thing about the class was you could see alot of realistic cars, not some fragile one-off creation like you see now. Many a streetracer's car actually into the M/P classes

M/P was also very popular in Great Britain, where the top three photos were taken.
