Dust Creek Turnout Photos – My Dodge Challenger’s new hood

Dust Creek Turnout Photos – My Dodge Challenger’s new hood

Yep, I swapped the Shaker hood setup for an R/T hood. It felt a little wierd, kinda like when you put a small block into a big block car, but I have a good reason. I found this hood at the Mopar Alley swapmeet for $300 and bartered the guy down to $250. The underhood reinforcement around the carb/air cleaner area had been cut out and someone put light up side marker lights into the hood...

10:00 sharp the Relic Car Club meet up at the 7-11 on Vasco Road and fill our heaps up with the necessary fluids for surviving an epic journey such as this. Just hanging around, ready to head out! Jeremy’s 1951 Chevy Truck. Matt’s 1939 Ford Truck. I asked Matt to strike a pose for a picture, but I think he must have thought I was hitting him up for change or something! We’re...

Janelle and Andee were the first ones to show up to John’s Burger in Janelle’s F-1 Ford Pickup Truck. Andee’s Packard had a stuck float and flooded, so she couldn’t drive it down. While I was eatin’ burger, this guy shows up. Original owner (!!!) 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T, 383 four barrel with a Shaker hood, rear window louvers, Go-Wing, and four speed! Only...

First Time Out!  Drag Racing my 1970 Dodge Challenger!

First Time Out! Drag Racing my 1970 Dodge Challenger!

Every summer the Wine Country Mopars host an event at Infineon Raceway. This year was the first year my Challenger was running and driving, so it took no encouragement from anyone to take it drag racing! This was the First Run in my 1970 Dodge Challenger. Ran a 14.1 at 97 mph with a stock 440 w/ headers, intake, and 750 dbl pumper. No slicks. This was the second run in my 1970 Dodge...

Mopars North of the Gate 2009

Wine Country Mopars put on a show every year at Infineon Raceway. It’s one of my favorites, because it combines all the popular elements us car guys like: Drag Racing, a Car Show, and a small Swap meet! This year I drove my Challenger up for a little drag racing. Kyle brought his Coronet, and we met Steve with his Belvedere there and Bill with his Coronet. This black on black 1970... 

Subframe Connectors for the Challenger

Subframe Connectors for the Challenger

Installed some el cheapo subframe connectors in my old Dodge, fabbed up out of thin walled 2×3 rectangular tubing. Levelled out and up on jackstands, my Challenger waits for the spinning wheel o’ sheetmetal doom. Cardboard blocks the flying sparks from pitting the glass. I wish I would have done this before I got the car going again, but like they say, hindsight is 20/20. First... 

Just a random picture from Mike’s garage!

Kevin’s 2008 Dodge Challenger and my 1970 Dodge Challenger It was a chance meeting; I was on my way to Safeway at lunch and Kevin happened to see me drive by! He pulled up next to me, waved and gave me a thumbs up, so I shouted back “Hey, want to take some pictures?” so we pulled over into a nearby business parking lot. Kevin’s a cool guy, he has 1969 Dodge Charger...
