I was looking at the drag race car sales site & found my old ad. Brought back some good memories. Will say they are a good bunch to deal with to help sell your car. I sold it in 2001 to a guy from around Macon,GA. If anybody has seen the car since, please let me know. I lost the guy's phone number & have often wondered what happened with the car.

Yeah, that was my first car. 200 6 cyl,3 in the tree. My senior year I put a 351W,C6, 3.70 geared 9" in it. Back halved it in 87 then front halved it in 89-90. Sad day when I rolled it out of the shop. But I hated seeing it just sit & go bad. Plus I couldn't afford two race cars.

Bobby, can you tell I like bright colors??? I had several reasons that I switched to the later body style. I wanted a rounder,swoopier, more aerodynamic body style. I loved the 94-98 body styles since they came out & you don't see alot of tube chassied cars with those bodies. I like being a little different. That's one reason I have a cowl hood with NACA ducts instead of a big scoop. Plus I wanted an all fiberglass body. Now if I had to build one today, I would be torn between the 05-up body style & the new Tim McAmis all glass or carbon fiber 70 fastback & the all glass/carbon 67 fastback body.

Rob, I am a little partial to your car too. Lets see. 67 fastback with a Boss hemi. What aint there to love!!! :D

for sure your stuff is nice to look at. My junk's always been a tad rough, just always opted to spend what little money I had on the things you dont see. The flat black on mine gives those pipe racks hell when trying to judge it at the stripe after the sun goes down. Makes for one hot bastard in the summer though, flat black with a black top, black fire suit, Ok summer heat can be unforgiving, and we get the humidity too. I long for the days, it was 11 here this morning.

Jon, I will be the first to admit that"pretty" don't make a car faster or more consistant. I am definitely guilty of spending $$$ to paint & powder coat everything. It's a perfectionist problem. I have had it since birth. :lol: I realized a long time ago that I would never be the fastest car. Since I can't be the fastest , I at least wanted to look good going down the track. :lol: It's also the reason I have had only two cars,very few spare parts,etc. Champayne tastes & a beer budget to operate on. If I can just win the lottery..... :D

I read an article where a guy painted the front of his car black & the rear bright red. Said black made it harder for cars to see you coming & the red "tittilated" you whether you knew it or not. It was a Beretta with Ron's fuel injection. I think I read it in Drag Racing, USA a few years back.

Jon are you coming to the BBF Nationals ?

I'm gonna try, thats about 750 miles one way, all right in the middle of storm chasing season lol. I know for sure we have a points race that weekend, I think we can miss two without it counting against us, that would leave one for a death lol. A lot of the big bracket hitters down here run the dark paint jobs for the very reason of being hard to judge. I will have a nice paint job by God one day, after i build my A headed 557, Yeah, gonna be black for awhile.

OK Bobby, now you are going to make me have to break out my practice tree. I sure don't want to be a first round duck!! :lol: But remember that you have that big ole 588 A-headed beast & all I have is a little mild mannered 557 CJ. So just remember to let go on my top bulb cause you will be chasing me!! :lol:

Oh boy, you are good Chris. That little mild mannered 557 of your's sure put's up some very impressives number's. I don't post to much but i read alot on the forum when it comes to the more serious race car's, and wich you do have. So how many tenth's are you going to give me :wink: . BZ

yeah the little fella does run pretty strong but unless you are putting that A haeaded beast of yours in a 4000 lb tank, I really don't see me being the faster car. I actually have more chassis than I have motor... for now.. :D I was at Sykes Brothers Cylinder Heads last night. The wife & I went out to dinner with Ron & David then wound up back at the shop discussing a little bit of everything. I did get to check out my C&C hemi heads. They are looking sweet!!!! :twisted: Now when I get them, I just might have to spot you a little.

Bobby what are you putting the 588 in? Gimme some specs(motor/chassis). I want to know how much you will be spotting ME !! :lol:
I am looking forward to meeting you & all your crew from MA. :D

Chris the 588 is in a 71 fastback mustang. As you no it does have A heads. Motor sports intake , crower 4.5 crank, manley 6.8 severe duty alum rods, comp cams 764 lift, JE 14.7:1 pistons, 1250 quick fuel carb, faith air merge collector, danny bee belt drive, and some other goodies here and there. It made 942 hp at 7,000 and 792 ft pounds at 5,900. The car itself is a tube chassis good to 8.50, ladder bar rear, turbo 400, 4.30 gears, 14/32 M/T slicks. Fiberglas lift off front and trunk lid. Im looking at some fiberglass doors now. I really wanted to upgrade the chassis this winter but i decided to spend the money to finish up on a new garge i put up. Im all done frezzing my a$$ off working on it :D . I ohnestly believe this car will run in the 8.30 range just the way it is now. Now if we where on pinks Chris i want 10 cars lengths and it is not up to a debate. :lol: . BZ
