    We were at Rock Falls, Wi. last weekend, just outside of Eau Claire. Got down to the final 6 cars out of 111 entries. Pretty good weekend, all in all. -Al

    You can see here how close everything is. Used wood round stock between the joints and firewall getting started.

ID:	22568 It's all good.

    The converted drum stove will blow you out of the garage in the winter. In the shop portion I have an old pot belly stove.....works well for the size of the room.


    These pictures are so old I still had my orginal front teeth.

    This ceased being my thread long time ago.

    It just turns out there are a lot of “car guys” involved in extreme accuracy shooting.

    Heck, since I started this thing back in 2013, I have probably spent at least another 20 Grand on my Malibu.

    Many, many, many years ago I asked a car/hot rod question on BR Central and was flamed on by several. My response was, "there's got to be some motor heads in this group!"

    Light'em Up!

    I'm the instigator on this one. Different guys spearhead the effort. Just a bunch of 409 guys that race, no club or anything. We usually have three races annually, most of the time out east. There will be another next month in Ohio I'll attend with 25 cars signed up. Funny part is that it at Dragway 42 out there is about 30 miles west of the Supershoot.

    We always bracket race, no electronics, old school. We raced at the Hot Rod Reunion in Bowling Green for a few years until they screwed us around.

    The race here has cars coming from Utah, Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Missouri, New York, and Colorado.

    Gotta love your signature. I'm a G-force 101A guy.

    Speaking of 409s, back in the day I was doing the Apprentice thing at a large Chevrolet Dealer in the SF Bay area. Parts manager told me "have I got a deal for you". Busy raising two kids, paying for a house, etc. Didn't have ANY extra $$.
    Parts man knew I was a 348/409 freak. Says "factory GM 409 fitted block, cam and main bearings, pistons and rings" $125.00. Don't know where or how I scraped up the $$ but I got it. Added a 348 crank, rods and heads and and a few more parts later, stuffed it in my 58 Bel Air. Something like 380 Cu. In. and 175 pounds compression on first start up and about 50 PSI oil pressure at idle.
    Ran it about 75K miles, pulled it out of the 58 and stuffed into my 62 Impala. Ran it another 30+k miles before it developed a slight knock. Never looked into that. Bought Momma a New Nova Sedan. Ran that 200K+ miles. I always got my money's worth. Those were the good old days.
