Since we got the off topic forum, which I was recently introduced to, thought it may be fun to share my other love, of building Muscle. Musclecars, that is. I know personally, my 20 plus years of car building led me to the level of bike building I now enjoy.
When it comes to old cars, there is not anything, as bad ass as a big block, lowered, maxed out muscle car. I aquired this 1971 Challenger back in 1987, and it was my daily driver for 12 years, then around 2000 it started to transform into a showcar, as it it now. My car has almost 500,000 miles on the chasis. But, I have replaced every part at least one time, with the exception of the sideglass windows..Its on its 2nd engine, 2nd rear end, and many parts have come and gone.
But bassically a 1971 Challenger base model. Converted into a 383 Magnum clone R/T.
383 C.I. BORED .30 OVER, Keith Black pistons, Edelbrock performer manifold, Holley 750cfm dual feed single pump carb, Mopar performance Electronic conversion distributor with orange ignition box, 8mm wires, dual timing chain and windage tray, Magnum cast iron exhaust manifolds, blowing thru Flowmaster dual chamber mufflers. Trans is your basic a727 torqueflite with a shift kit. And external trans cooler. Out back is a 8 3/4 mopar rear end with 3.73 suregrip diff. Polished 15 inch Centerline Drag stars keep it looking old school. When we painted it, I chose a 1970 white tail stripe, and matched the hood scoops to that strip. Anyways, I'd love to see the cars from you guys...
