    It's been awhile since I was a regular visitor and poster to Advrider. It seems that every time I start hanging around the forum, I start spending too much money.
    I blame this thread...

    What would be really cool is if that is one of the Valiants with the aluminum block slant six motor - a very limited production run made to challenge the Volvo 544 in SCCA sedan racing in the early 1960's.
    A friend of mine had one of those motors and was planning to swap it into an English sports car of some sort but the engine was a lot lighter than the cast iron one.

    Maybe not at all except for the one currently being dragged on the coast.

    "Best of all, the engine runs and lives today in a 1962 Plymouth Valiant that gets driven, and drag raced, regularly in Los Angeles."

    Yep, its the California Hot Rod Reunion this weekend at Famoso. This will be the first year in awhile that we (work) has not headed down. Until a few years ago the Double Tree had a pretty good parking lot party and lots fuel cars firing up.
    Now it's just a couple of cars, NHRA and insurance put the kabosh on that.
