It has to clear the "bumper" cover, which is missing.

BigV 02-21-2017 11:14 PM

bumper looks stock too. like the stock you'd find at the building supply yard.

A note from one of my SSR Bros in Vegas this morning.

On the chassis dyno last night, we made 980 HP and 860 Ft-Lbs Torque running on E85 at 20 PSI of Boost.

BigV 02-25-2017 10:08 AM

20PSI, goddamn. At first I thought, man, he's gonna spend a fortune in tires. Then I read 20PSI, and I think he should add pistons to the list.

xoxoxoBruce 02-25-2017 01:41 PM

He has the right pistons, he has the right everything. ;)

Gravdigr 02-25-2017 03:02 PM

He doesn't have the right symmetry.

Mounting limitations, I suppose.

He had to build the set up himself. The engine is offset to the passenger side from the factory. A change they made in '05 to accommodate a Tremac 6-spd.
All the electronics/electrical had to be moved out of the engine bay to the fender, for heat and to make room. He's started this a year and a half ago, has torn the engine down half a dozen times changing stuff, changed engines, replaced the trans, built a dual-fuel system, and a bunch of other stuff.

Cragars and gangster whitewalls...Just say no.

Dude parked his car on a 1959 Vette.

fargon 03-06-2017 04:32 PM

I learned by reading the comments that it was a confused Old Lady what tore up that Vette.

That looks like a car built by west coast custom for some athlete or rapper, where the whitewalls are actually part of the rim powder coated white.

Information has been released a drip at a time to build the hype, but it's supposed to be 200 lbs lighter than the 707 hp Hellcat, and in the neighborhood of 1000 hp. Keep in mind this was a factory prepared car for it's grand debut so not a guaranty of the same performance by the one you buy next year.

You can tell by this original 1965 commercial, it took awhile for Pontiac to figure out the GTO’s target demographic.
The Mad Men envisioned their customers as the sporty married professionals in the commercial.
Pretty quick they found out the GTO’s real buyers were more likely to be found at the drag strips and drive-ins.

Pontiac ad man Jim Wangers knew, so he arranged for the GTO song to be produced, with Ronny and the Daytonas.

Man, I hate when that happens.

Attachment 59857

BigV 03-26-2017 09:45 PM

Honestly, I'm surprised it doesn't happen more often. Those tires and wheels are huge and heavy and they're obviously held on by the (relatively) tiny spindle. They get a LOT of movement, it seems like an obvious weak point.

I bet he stuck the landing though!

xoxoxoBruce 03-30-2017 09:14 PM

This is a cut-away of a 1948 Packard 327 ci, flathead, straight eight.

Would you like to see/hear that engine with a blower in a rat rod?

BigV 03-30-2017 10:15 PM


Pamela 04-02-2017 08:28 PM

Was that gear whine or a noisy blower? And where did that guy learn to shift? IMO he needs more practice.

Gravdigr 04-03-2017 04:05 PM

It was a blown Packard straight-8. But he might have had a gear drive instead of timing belt.

I liked watching the shifter move around with the drivetrain.

I've seen so many pictures of Jones Street with trucks, tour busses, even limos hung up, I don't understand why it still happens.

Sterlings lost popularity when mini skirts went away. :blush:

Gravdigr 04-11-2017 01:53 AM

You mean they were actually popular?

xoxoxoBruce 04-11-2017 05:33 AM

With people who disposable income for an extra, limited use, car. Think playmates in mini skirts, and wealthy men looking for that trophy 2nd or 3rd wife.

592 miles and 807 miles; barn fresh; stickers still on the windows; cars are identical; build sheets are identical; consecutive VIN numbers!<--This means these cars have probably been together since the assembly line. Together on the truck that delivered them to the dealer, together. They probably left the dealer together. And they've survived together. And now they've been found together. And taken to a new home together.

That fucken rocks.:devil:

Wow, a buddy of mine stopped by and said he's just came from from putting $5000 down and ordering a new Camaro. I handed him the latest Car&Driver (they used to be printed on paper in those days), which had a comparison of the latest crop of muscle cars. He put down the magazine and walked out without a word, went and cancelled the Camaro, then straight to the Buick dealer his extended family had been buying Buicks from for decades. Got a super deal because this stiff collar dealership didn't have a clue. :lol:

High end cars usually have all the latest bells and whistles, which eventually work their way down to the cheaper models in time. It's a shame this brake temperature gage didn't survive the trickle down.

Would've just posted the video, but, there's essentially nothing to see.
