460VEGA,Very cool car i bet the Chevy guys don't

like you much when they see what engine is in it.But i bet none of their BBC engines run that strong with dish pistons in it.I used that same cam before i changed to a roller it worked pretty good for me also.I bet they don't like the Ford Motorsport plate on the back either.

Later Mark.

I really don`t get as much grief as you would think from the chevy guys.I guess I have been racing with them so long we respect each other.

I dont know what the ratio is exactly but with the cam straight up it has about 185 cranking compression. I`ve run this motor like this on nothing but pump 93 for four years with no problems. I even won fun ford atlanta footbrake class in2005 with it.

I found the car just down the street from my house. My neighbor was building it with a big chevy & glide and he lost interest. I got the car for 1800 bucks a complete roller with hooker headers. I cant even find vegas for parts in junkyards around here so I guess they all rusted out even in the south!

If you slow the tape down its the driver front tire that hops of the ground a bit. The rear tire is still planted
