I had $1700 in mine counting paint (plum crazy) and drove it to work every day (26 miles one way- Hudson to Brooksville) Helps to be the head machinist at Ken's Speed and Machine You start to build a car and parts are thrown at you.

360 offset ground crank, square decked etc, #915 heads (had three sets of heads), custom solid roller cam, BG carb, 904 with a 3800 converter, 8 3/4 with 4.88s and a spool, through the muffs, M&H's on widened factory wheels and dog dish hub caps. I need to scan some pics.

I didn't make a full pass on NO2, but mid 10's would have been doable.

J saw the car way back when, and said DAMN

T.

We got back to the states and we got a Vega GT 4 speed wagon (1st Learners Permit car) and a Plymouth Valiant 4 door 225 slant six sedan (2nd Learners Permit car). That poor old Valient with it's torqflight 904 never stood a chance. The braking ability was always fuddled by the early right rear lock up. Plastic bits were worse than Ford OR GM.

High school nights!

Cruising University Mall, racing on Davis or Creighton, or 9th Ave... reverse burn outs at Lil General.

Before PJC had another PJC...

Scienic Hwy, "the Chimney!" Spainish Trail! (when it was clay/dirt)

Drive thru scrwdrivers!

So far we have:

Madhouse
Dandy Dan
WoodsRider
AST
DFR
DrPhilGood

I ran into Courtney and Melvin at West Marine yesterday and invited them to come too.

Right now the forecast is for scattered showers 30%. If the chance of rain increases to 60% or above, we may reschedule. I will post Satuday night by 10 pm if this happens.

I'm thinking we need to get POG biker vests. How AWESOME would that be?

Colors could be viagra blue and cialis yellow.

Smilin' Bob approves of this idea, as long as the POG vest has an ENZYTE patch in a prominent location
