Post subject: Hey, Stoopy!

...Oh, sure.....NOW. Of course, I had my 'Stang GT after Carlsbad Raceway closed (though I did get to run my Sportster there a few times) and before this...
Yep, good ol' drag racing at Qualcomm stadium in San Diego. Only 1/8th mile, but notice the gritty almost-a-street-race feel to the place.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=UOBJTilWB8Y

(the shot at the end with the four Challengers is nice).

Here's the program:

racelegal.com/

This is bitterly disappointing not to have had this during my S.D. residence. Evil or Very Mad


I don't know what was in that Beetle, but it was badass. Pity about the terrible bog on the Challenger against the Subaru. The driver needs lessons bad.

Outstanding. Dude, you so need one of those SRT8's. Debadged. Even though that green color is like wicked!!! And surely there must be a dragstrip, even an 1/8th mile, nearby.

My son and I should be going to our local dragstrip ( www.olddominionspeedwa..._Main.html )this coming Friday for bracket, dragster and bike racing night. We'll also be in So Cal the weekend after that to generally sightsee and hose around, who knows we might go check that out!

And oh yeah that Beetle sounded like it was the schnitz!!! Mr. Green

We have a local 1/8 mile track (originally 1/4) that is nicely maintained. Bristol, TN ("Thunder Valley") is, co-incidentally, only 4 hr's away and has "street fights" every Thursday. I'd love to go up there and run for ol' times sake. The "street fight" series requires muffled exhaust, which makes driving up and running what ya' brung practical.


That Beetle sounded like a Porsche engine. The raucous V8 was the Challenger that it appeared to beat. On a 1/8 mile track where big power and aero plays a small role, that's entirely plausible. He who hooks up for the 60' times usually wins.

So...sort of a COPO/Royal Bobcat Tempest wagon, then? Laughing

LOL... no special orders needed for the tempest... it had it own magic (check out this page from the factory brochure... what a hippy and vagabond lifestyle it caused!)...

tempest = free spirit man...

I know its from the brochere, I go one ebay and pick up orginals of the cars I have owned... I guess as I typed that I could say I collect them... never realized it till now...

last One I got was for a 1970 Ford LTD... I just gave that car away a year ago last Feb to a friends son... I had taken it in for an oil change (it was january in michigan) and they said 11 months and 300 miles since the last one... It had a 351 with "cruise-O-matic" tranny LOL... the thing floated... step on it over railroad tracks... everyone in the car would grab a hold of something... but you would never feel it come down... I swear. But hold on to something going fast around a corner!

ramblin again, sorry...

Heh, heh. My Jack Kerouac vagabond lifestyle also called for a station wagon. 1969 Town & Country, 95,000 miles, $350 from a recently-widowed little ol' lady. This beast preceded the Green Super Beetle I traded for in Colorado six months later (I was told my car was worth $75...and that was for the tires). This monster went across the U.S. and everywhere up the Pacific Coast and Rocky Mountains, smoking and drinking like Dean Martin (the car, not me). I slept in or next to that car for about three months, just bumming around. I remember bathing in the Russian River in November....can you say "cold? Ahhh...the carefree days of youth...when we couldn't pay the price of a good glass of Chateau De Chasela....or a cu o' tea...in a cracked cup an all (or out of a rolled up newspaper). "But you know, we were happier then, even though we were poor....." Laughing

Can I pick a campsite or can't I? This is on the Hull Mtn. logging road in N. California...



Gas was mercifully cheap in '79...



Another nice campsite, I think at Clearlake, also in N. Cal. Or it might be Lake Pillsbury....

They're rather stretching the concept of the "COPO" cars, which were not the same as a factory racer program like the Super Cobra Jet Mustangs or Thunderbolts were. What has possessed them to put the "hockey stick stripe" from the '70 'Cuda on there is totally beyond me:

OTOH, the new iteration of the Challenger Drag Pack with the Viper V10 engine is more to my liking. Mr. Green These are running in the 9's out of the box....

I've been enjoying and savoring that thread so much that I'm still only up to page 90 and just saw the "Doomsday Machine" Chrysler Hemi 'cammer'.... was staring at the belt arrangement trying to figure out what the heck before I saw the "DOHC" and it struck me. Never heard of that one before!!!

Second post down....

That was news to me, too. I guess the Ford SOHC experience happened just in time to prevent they're wasting any real effort on it. At least FoMoCo got a few of theirs out there.

Peeky, peeky..... Mr. Green

Whut lurks under those valve covers.....
Notice that the cams are initially belt, and then gear, driven. Not very efficient (and begs for reliability issues). The Fors SOHC was all belt driven.
