Oldsmobile 442 W-30 Convertible. I've owned this car since 1981. 1 of 80
automatic W-30 convertibles built in '72. (33 manual transmission versions; 113 total W-30 droptops in '72).
Saturn Gold with white strips and saddle (YAK) interior. I built the 455 over
10 years ago. It has 1970 .030 over forged TRW pistons, a JM 22-25 hydraulic
cam and adjustable pushrods. It has the stock W-455 Intake and Qjet, and a
points type distributor. It has an 11" A-1 convertor and a TH400, and a
1970 3.42 O type 12 bolt rear axle. (an 8.5" 10 bolt 3.73 was original but
it exploded one day at the track) Headers are connected to the stock size tiny
pipes (2 1/4" headpipes and 2" tailpipes). A Carter 4594 electric
pump at the rear pushes fuel to the stock mechanical pump. It's best pass ever
was 13.31 / 101 on swapmeet L60-15 bias plies, and good enough to be tossed
from the track due to no rollbar (IHRA requires rollbars in convertibles below

Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Hardtop. 350 4V, Column shift TH350, 3.08 rear and

interior. 455 4V, factory dual exhaust and
super-rare 15x6 SSIV wheels. 1 of 3900 Delta 88 convertibles for '72.
Buick Skylark. Just purchased Dec 07. Originally a 350 car, it had a Buick 455
and TH400 swapped in. A spun rod bearing injured it and now the motor is out. In
the meantime I might install a spare 454 Chevy I have.
Ford Fairlane 500 Station Wagon. Originally 302 / C4, it's now 351W /FMX. I
swapped the horrible manual drums brakes to front discs from a 70 Torino. Still
has 3.00 gears in the 8" rear. Dad
bought it new.
Ford F-100 "Unibody" LWB pickup. From 1961 to 1963 some Ford shortbed
and longbed pickups were made with the cab and bed as one integral piece. They
called it a Unibody but there is still a separate frame under the body. It
looked good but wasn't practical because a big load could make the whole truck
sag and pinch the door openings over time. Also the do-it-yourself field
replacement of a damaged bed was impossible. This truck has the 223 straight 6
motor and 3 on the tree manual transmission. No PS or PB. This truck is so basic
it doesnt't have a door lock in the driver's door and has no passenger visor!
Armrests? Forget it. 3.70 gears in the 9" rear. Straight I beam front axle.
Ford F-150 "Ranger" standard cab LWB (8' bed 133" wheelbase) pickup.
Trailer Special Package with extra leaves in the back spring that contact
special frame brackets when loaded. Dual battery option. 460 and C6. 9"
rear with 2.75 gears. Factory original tan paint and yes , that's original
woodgrain stickers on the sides. Mods include early heads, Headers and duals,
Comp 268 cam, Performer intake and 770 Holley carb with electric choke.
Chevrolet Caprice 9C1 LT1. 9C1 means Police Package! Has the 260 HP LT1 350,
dual exhaust, special
suspension, heavier frame, 4 wheel disc brakes, special wheels, front fabric bucket seats, vinyl
back seat, rubber floor mats, and more! This car was a marked unit for Mongomery
County, Maryland is its first life.
Chevrolet Caprice Classic Station Wagon. All the GM full size wagons from 1994 to 1996
have the LT1 motor and duals! Just the thing for getting to the soccer games on
time while getting 20-23 MPG. (1986 Cutlass and 1985 Caddy Fleetwood in the
background, both are now gone)
2000 Ford Excursion. King of
the SUVs, it has a wheelbase 6" longer than a Chevrolet Suburban. Has the
gas V10 and is up to the task of towing anything I have.
1998 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra
convertible. While regular Mustang GTs had the 2 cam 4.6 V8, Cobras got the 4
cam 305 HP version and all were 5 speed manuals. Limited production. Laser Red
with black leather interior, Mach 460 Stereo wuth CD.
In stock shape with just a K&N air filter, I ran a 14.06 at 99.7 MPH 1/4
