    1975 Monte Carlo resoration

    Last year was building the motor, this year is body restoration... here's a short video of the first start, but this one was with the old carburetor on it. I have since then upgraded to a Holley Sniper EFI (as seen in my avatar pic)

    Is RK starting back up?

    I got the email notification too, so I'm back... for now. We'll see if it picks up with more car discussion topics. I've been posting updates on my current project restoring my 1975 Monte Carlo.

    Red River Showdown, April 26th, 2008 Texas vs. Oklahoma 1/4 Mile!

    I would have liked to make it, but I'm already booked on April 26. Also, I don't know if my car would help or hinder the Texas side... it's decent, but not exceptionally fast. I've never timed it at a track, but would guess it's a low 14 or high 13 in the 1/4 mile. N.A. (no power adders) V8...

    Tax dollars and revolutionary war

    The "terrorist attacks" are caused by our own government. It's been going on for a LONG time. 9-11 was an inside job, just like the attack on the USS Liberty back in 1967. As far as taxes go, if you haven't seen this film yet, then you really need to. This film "America - From Freedom to...

    350 v 383

    A truck is all the more reason to have gone stroker!!! Where are you going to be spending most of your driving time? That's right, in relatively low RPM range. That's where the extra torque makes a HUGE difference. A LOT easier to pull a trailer, and acceleration is greatly improved. And I...

    what do you consider N/A

    Oxygen masks do NOT force air into your lungs. Of course there is some pressure on the lines from the tank to the mask, but that is so you don't have to suck on it like a straw. An oxygen mask is a PERFECT analogy to N2O injection. If you just sit there and don't inhale, the oxygen just stays...
