    A couple things that my car has that are frowned upon as far as true nostalgia goes are; modern wheels on the rear (I do have steelies I can put on) and lettering is vinyl (sorry not changing that). Thanks Derrick

    Put a 572 B.B. with a 6-71 on my Christmas list, then I could break stuff with the Big Dogs.:cool:

    But there is no Santa Clauseo_O so gonna build a 302

    At the Meltdown on Sunday Randall Bowman ( Dragnasty) asked how far I lived from Waukesha WI,
    ( about 100 miles ) then gave me the $100.00 gift certificate to Kilpatrick Engine and Transmission that he won at the Meltdown and told me to use it.

    Thanks Randall:cool:

    So reality is that my next build is a 302 s.b.c., I wanted to build one since the early 70s and a few years ago
    picked up 63 .040 over 327 small journal block and then a machined 283 crank.
    The gift certificate from Randall pushed me over the edge to help start the build.
    With a few hundred more Kilpatrick cleaned, decked, then honed the block with a torque plate.
    Now I gotta call Ric about pistons.:rolleyes:

    Thanked Kilpatrick Engine and Transmission for supporting the Meltdown Drags.

    It's not a trophy it's a badge of honor.

    If y'all get some extra time from your builds for the Meltdown. Check out Big Daddy's Skull Garage this week. Dub G and I's Ranchero made it into their 500th video.
