    '1969 Deluxe 300 Chevelle L-89.(396/375 alum head)" Sounds like we will see this model at PSMCDR this year.

    Has anyone ever run the following cars at the PSD's?

    1970 AMC Rebel Machine
    1970 or 1971 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler

    Both are very cool rides!

    Ron Tuttle ran a orange 71 cyclone spoiler 429cj car a few yeqrs ago.. Very nice ride. I believe Dan just picked up a Rebal Machine. Maybe you can perswade him to play with it. :)

    Ron's car was a base Cyclone with the Thunder Jet 429, which was the standard motor for that car. I don't recall if he built it up to Cobra Jet specs or not but I don't think so.

    Tim, you were right the first time.
    Ron ordered a 429CJ cam from Holman Moody.
    He also had the quadrajet on top.

    I would be shocked if a Thunder Jet ever ran the numbers that Ron did.
    Ron hit a speed of 107mph. I don't think that would be possible with an Autolite 4300, the carb that came on a 429 Thunder Jet. The exhaust manifolds on a TJ don't flow like the CJ, either.

    I could say that about a lot of cars at the race, no? :Brow:

    With what you've said, I'm gonna guess he had a TJ car built to CJ specs. orange70Cyclone429.jpg

    63-64 dual quad Wildcat. Don't recall anyone racing one of those, and stick cars are more plentiful than you'd think....Or you could pick up a 65 Gran Sport and.......never mind.

  16. 65' or 67' L79 Malibu? Has anyone ever brought a 66' L72 Biscayne? All three seem like they would be potent. JMHO

    Don't know much about this one. Is sitting in the middle of nowhere though. Make it what you want.

    and the chances of the '57 318 dual-quad Golden Fury ever being there is out the door as we have decided to let a good friend of the family buy dad's car. He had tried buying it from dad while dad was still alive and we felt it was time for someone enjoy it (I've never seen it drive for more than 1/10 mile).

    Build a Ford or Mercury. Not many of us. Sometimes the Studebakers out number us.

    Find a 63 or 64 Fairlane. Build a screaming 289 Hi-po for it. All of the K code cars had three pedals.
