The Jalopy Journal
This picture was taken at Wayne Arteaga's house in Missouri. Wayne is second from left, in between K.S. Pittman and Doug Cook.
The builder did a really good job.
These are 70's era gassers w/out tube or beam axles. There's a Vega behind the flag poles.
That's a model car.
From what I understand, the EXP was the car he liked the least. He said the car was evil handling due the short wheelbase.
I really liked Gliddens T bolt Fairlane, Pintos and Mustangs. But my all time favorite Glidden car was his Arrow.
If they weren't being used in the un blown gassers in '67, they're not likely to be legal in the SEGA now. There is no reason the A/G cars need to...
Yes I am. I used to have his book.
I doubt that an old left alone example of this car would ever have had a Ford 9 inch under it. The Ford 9 inch was not the go to rear end back...
Jenkins used 350 pistons and 5.886 long aluminum ( Super Rods ) rods in his 331 cu. in. engines. He used the forged small journal 327 crankshaft...
Not in the South East Gassers. Heads up, no breakout, lbs/cu in.
This was their Thames powered by a 427 Ford SOHC.
What about those mirrors???
Your Corvette looks way more era correct than the Thunderbird does.
I was wrong. I found a picture of the Delgado car on another thread. Butterflies above the injectors. Probably why it works as well as it does on...
Pretty sure Pete Jackson injectors were that way. Auggie Delgado runs them on the street.
I'd be concerned about those little single shear mounted clevises too.
Are those Ford spindles on a Willys axle? I thought about doing the same thing with an Anglia axle.
I can't help you with Crower parts, but I do have a complete set of nos Schiefer roller tappets. They fit all early Hemi engines.
The black '55 Chevy is another incarnation of Jim Zakias car.
I wish the SEGA guys would post up their engine builds and suspension set ups. That's the kind of stuff I like to see.
Yes. This car remained un-chopped until Jr parted it out and built his Opel Kadette. He match raced up and down the east coast under Big John...
Looks like you'll be looking for some 6.14 gears. Is that gonna be a Jimmy Huff 351 Cleveland?
You crossed over to the dark ( blue oval ) side now.
They used what were called lift bars. Crites Industries sells lift bars and the cross member they attach to. They're made to fit Falcons, Comets,...
Is that a flat bottom boat on the hood of that car?
If you shop around, you can easily do the 9.3 for less than $3,000.00. You'll be more period correct and have a much stronger rear end. There's...
It's not likely. How fast could he possibly be going after that curb on those skinny tires?
Why don't you just ask Quain? You'll probably have an answer by morning.
I'm betting that would have to be mounted outside of the cockpit and out of site.
