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 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!

new time

I swapped the 660s out for 800dp carbs, still haven`t got the jetting right ,but it ran a [email protected] &[email protected] with a 1.31 60 ft. It had a slight lean stumble at the 60ft ,but ran clean the rest of the way thru. I`ve had 1.25 60' times before so there is still more left! I ran out of time to do any more jetting. I can`t believe this pump gas 466 ran 110 mph in the eighth mile!
