Modified Production

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by colesy, Apr 1, 2009.

  1. Holy crap!

    I thought the new Dodge Rams were the first modern-day pickup to have a built in storage compartment. This is pretty cool!

  3. Okay, apparently a certain someone does what he does best and got my thread shut down just when I was getting some answers.

    It appears as though he doesn't come around this thread or at least he can't get this one shut down so I'll re-submit the question here.........

    Okay, I've been all around the automotive block in my 56 years. I've owned everything from Antiques, Classics, Originals, Hot Rods, Drag Cars and Off Road raced.

    I see folks here bash the Pro-Street look.

    Well my question is what is the difference in "the look" between Super Stock, Modified Production and Pro-Street? What are your definitions for these so-called designations on H.A.M.B. friendly cars?

    Now I know the technical difference between Super Stock and Modified Production but I'm interested in the look of the 3 labeled types.

    We all "think" we know what a "Gasser" looks like.

    Educate and enlighten me guys!

    ***Edit Note*** I'm not shooting at O/T here, I'm just trying to get some answers here.

    Sorry man, I'm spent. Losing that post was like losing a child that you have loved and nurtured and raised up from a little gaffer. Maybe, someday, somehow, I will find the strength to go on, but for now, I am spent.

    Im looking for old pics of Augie Vetterino's 68 M/P Camaro out of NJ. My friend owned it after him and I wrenched on it. It was candy red with a yellow stripe over the roof.

    Sorry you feel that way...

    But you have been here long enough to know Threads like that always get Deleted.

    ( and I would have, if another Mod hadn't beaten me to the punch )

    And as mentioned many times before, the HAMB cut off date is mid '60s.

    So all the Camaro's, and Vettes on big tucked in Centerlines, etc, are Off Topic.

    I'm going to get rid of those now ( the ones that have been recently added to this Tread )

    As well as the repeat offenders who posted them...

    I saw / met grumpy @ Scotsdale in 1965 @ the AHRA winternationals. He was racing the white "black arrow" car. He was kind enough to read a plug for me...I was 18. I won class and set AHRA record with my 56 chevy. It was a legal NHRA DMP. I think we ran a two barrel on it for that race. Seems like I cut a three barrel in half and adapted it to a 4 barrel manifold. Might have run 14.00 @ 98 mph weighing 3600 lbs.

    My '66 Chevelle that I ran in D/MP from 1974 to 1981. It had a 327 + .030" SBC (331) and a Muncie/Doug Nash 4 speed trans. with 6.14 rear gear. It ran a best of 11.76 ET @ 115 mph. I shifted at 8,500 rpm's and would usually go thru the lights at around 9,300 rpm's. I really miss the days of Modified Production Racing.

    Remember black and white photos? The professional photographer took this black and white photo of me racing the Chevelle at the 1975 U.S. Nationals at Indy when I was competing in Modified Production Eliminator. Those were the days. We started running classes on Wednesday, and there were 17 cars in my class, D/MP, alone.

    In 1981, I sold the '66 Chevelle and moved to California. I purchased this 1970 Camaro RS from Keith Halverson that ran F/MP with a Competition Engineering (Jerry Marquart) 287 SBC, Doug Nash 5 speed, and 6.50 gears. Keith ran a 10.60 ET @ 121 mph at Milan, Michigan, with the car.
