If anyone has some detailed pics or magazine articles of the car PLEASE e-mail me.
Very cool!

Perhaps a build thread in the Nostalgia section for the old school peeps?

Disagree. JHOLE was nothing but an ass starting this. Awhile back he called me out and all I did was "ask a question." He turned it into a Big Bunch of Bullshit.

Well, I got it somewhat torn down. Now the big question:
D I build "big tire car" or be real strict & build a real clone, 10.5 tire, relatively mild engine and little fiberglass?

I'm not too bothered by your sentiment. But, your statements are questionable.

I don't remember who you are, or the exchange that seems to haunt you..



Might define your position of understanding more than my position, history, and qualifications..

Go ahead though - say / feel / however you want.. Surely has no effect on me, nor reality..

Calling me an "ass" because of you might not have liked the answer that I might have offered to a question that you admit to asking ... ???

Sheesh..

Well the car is stripped & ready for the chassis shop! It's scheduled to go in in March. Turns out the floorpan isn't quite as nice as I'd hoped but is serviceable. I'll post some pics when it gets back. Right now it looks like it'll be a "big tire" car but with the old, early '70s paint scheme as that's what most people remember as P/S cars yet the early paint scheme was more reminiscent of the '70s. My guess is it'll be a low 9/high 8-second ride which is on par for the era.

If it is as sano as this Dart and the Hemi sounds as crisp you will have a winner! This is one of my most watched videos ever! Good luck with your build!

Well from what I'm hearing, locally the concept is being well accepted & some guys are just waiting to see how it turns out. Right now locally there are about 6-8 racers on board with the idea besides me & now I'm just working on drumming up sponsors....

Sounds like it could be cool. Heads-up deal, brackets, or index?

He doesn't even have a full field of cars yet, but you already want him to be just like everyone else and start bracket racing? Hmmm.

Heads-up, NO weight breaks, NO electronics except a rev-limiter and manual shifting (even automatics!) a must, and a minimum weight of 3100lbs for small tire cars & 2800 for big tire. I'm not real good at posting stuff so I'll get the wife to post the rules soon.
These are only some of the rules but it allows everything from a S/ST car to S/C style car to compete in 2 Nostalgia Pro Stock (N/PS) classes with N/PS1 being the faster class while N/PS2 allows for the "sleeper" or less modified style style cars to race. This would allow, for example, the classic "mini-car"-vs-classic P/S carto compete & run reasonably quick. The winner of each class then runs heads-up to Class Eliminator. While some may look at N/PS1 as having a huge advantage, history has shown that current technology allows a small tire car to run with a big-tire car.
Now in the interest of "nostalgia" cars are limited to 1967-1980 and no trucks and no modern (LS, Coyote, etc.) engines allowed so I think you can see how applying modern machining technology on old stuff could produce a reasonably quick, affordable & fun association

ANd a fair question it is! Being the "nova man" I see where your favorites lie, so I'll give you a relatable example:
In the early days of P/S (pre '74) you could technically run a Nova in P/S. FINE!
How about a big or small tired car, your choice & your choice of engine. Stroker sbc? FINE! A 555bbc? There IS a cu. in. limit in this---565cu.ins. Just be prepared to run heads-up, no power adders against whatever's in the next lane.
The "trick" (?) with all this is that the cars look old-school, run old school equipment (relatively speaking) and it's all on the driver---no electronics, no dataloggers, no modern technology to drive up cost (it's an investment already)and since times for the faster cars will be somewhat commonplace by today's standards the "reward" is how it used to be and based on your own skills of getting the most out of the most basic of automotive equipment.
To me that's what drag racing was all about & IMO should be.
