    Finish the blown small block, add the engine plates, burn off the old slicks and buy new ones!

    Oh yeah, win "Top gun" at the big MOPAR show this summer.......

      Gotta get my Garage queen off the blocks and back on the tires, I think something is growing under it, and its in my garage! Seems every time I get close I dream up a new project (Ie. in tank EFI pump now). We'll see.

        I just want to get my '68 Barracuda on the road. Need to get exhaust on it, rebuild front end, and the disc swap and rear brake line done.

          When I painted my car 5 1/2 years ago, I didn't do a good enough job masking off my rear undercarriage. As good as the car looks from most angles, the rear axle housing, gas tank and leaf springs have some primer overspray on them. I plan to pull them all out, paint the tank with Eastwood Tank Tone paint and then powder coat the axle housing and leaf springs. It will be a job, but well worth it.

            To get the headliner in and front and back glass back in so I can drive it. Anything more is just icing on the cake.

                Thank you. But all I really want at this point is to get it back driving again. It made me really happy.

                    Doh! I forgot I need to swap out the windshield as well. It's got a crack that I know is just going to get worse. :BangHead:

                        Put on the thermoquad intake and carb, mopar performance valve covers, twin hood scoops, hood pins, go wing, install floor shifter and console, convert column to floor shift column, put tuff wheel on, put in nice taillights I traded for, put on side stripes and decals, paint stripes on hood, thank goodness I have all the stuff, now I just need to light a fire under my hind end. But after hitting a deer in my challenger which is my daily driver, I have it to deal with, so now I'm collecting parts to fix it.

                          Do you have an overdrive or just want a stoplight terror with 4.10's? I ask cuz I just went to 3.91's and want to know how they will do in my semi daily driver dart sport.

                            Step 1: Get new rear end
                            Step 2: Burn rubber in the 7.25 till it snaps (unless someone seems interested at that time to buy it)
                            Step 3: Swap in new rear end, slap on some new rubber
                            Step 4: Beat the living snot out of it
                            optional: Remove bench seat and install buckets

                              .

                              I'm going for a stop light sleeper deal. The 3.55s are a bit doggy out of the hole with the 2.66 first gear. I figured 4.10s should make it snappier on the street and track, besides it never sees interstate use anyways.

                                    I have the drivers seat unbolted in my Swinger and a seat cover in the garage ready to be mated up. I have a LD4B and a AVS2 for the 318 under the hood but I might chisel away at the roller cam 318 block I have stuffed in the garage instead. It might be a good place for the Speedmaster heads I bought myself for a Christmas gift and a 4" stroke crank.
                                    I am lucky to have 2 cars. The 66 has been a dependable ride since I built the 273 10+ years ago. It might need a little ongoing maintenance this summer but it is a fun driver. Last year I added some fun wheels so I can cruise and show them off this summer.

                                        Thank you. Never seen it done so I thought I'd give it a shot. 69 Dart bulges. My first attempt at a major job.

                                          Get my latest 416 built with roller valve train, aluminum rods, aluminum heads, higher compression, & see if I can get the car into the 9 second area.

                                              Memike, it will be good to see Victoria back on the road again. We have all seen the work you have put into her, along with being a loving caring brother. Get her on the road again as soon as possible & take her for the ride she needs.

                                                Was considering this myself, made some reverse cast molds off a junk rusted GTS bulge hood, can duplicate the Bulges in Fiber Glass that will accept the factory chrome inserts too.

                                                Have not tried them on an actual hood yet, but always thought it would be a great custom look. Like your steel original hood bulges, would be interested in how you came up with a doner hood to make it happen.

                                                I always enjoy the creativity involved in doing something like this.

                                                Nice Job . . .
