Bryan’s 1939 Ford Engine Pull

Mopar Bryan has had a 1939 Ford factory shortbed flatbed pickup sitting in his garage for ten years now with a blown up engine… It’s a nitrous injected dual quad tunnel rammed 454 big block Chevy backed by a Richmond five speed.

Soupin’ Up a 318 – Steve’s 1971 Dodge Dart

Starting with a 1969 Dodge Coronet with a 318 (originally a 383 car!), and a Fury Convertible with a hopped-up 383, we started the switch, and add headers, an aftermarket intake, and other goodies, we got the 383 into the... 

The Free Truck Thrash-O-Thon

The Thrash-O-Thon 10-03-04 This all happened in one day!!! Many thanks to everyone who came over, and there were a lot of us! Our victim: One (1) free 1978 Chevy Camaro, affectionately dubbed “The Stop-Sign Slayer” by me, and “Joe Dirt’s Mullet ride” by everyone else. Dan bought it for the tranny and rear-end, I got the engine, and lots of people got free...
