I was curious... I'm currently building and working on a 69 Dart Drag Car with a newly built stroker 340. (i.e. 416) I know this is a Big Block Dart website, does that mean I really shouldn't post stuff relating to my car?
The project is an over 25 year carry over from before I had kids. I'm finally trying to complete it and get it out to the drag strip. This site has been a great help to me for things like narrowing springs, tire clearance, etc. I've also been converting over to the Magnum Force Coilover front suspension, adding tubs, a roll bar, sub-frame connectors, among other things. BTW: I've also been taking lots of pictures during this process. So I have lots of stuff to post.
I'm a retired Master Auto Tech. So, a very well equiped hobbiest. Still have all my tools and shop supplies. I have been a lifetime car mechanic. Started fixing cars for money before I even had a drivers license. Huge Mopar fan forever... But, have to confess I also own a 70 Chevelle Malibu SS 396. My other toy.
There are future plans to put an even bigger small block in this car. (DC Racing Roller Block) As money permits. But, I have always loved the , like the 440 and the Hemi. I even have a lot of 440 parts left around from my 72 Power Wagon Sled Puller.
My daugher will be learning and co-driving this car. So, I wanted to start her off smaller until she gets her horsepower legs and hopefully doesn't wreck the car.
