1  General / Classifieds / Slow Resto on a 1957 Chevrolet wagon on a budget on: November 10, 2017, 06:36:05 AM
Well oddly enough I found a 283 "Power Pack" motor at a shop here in Richmond.  1957 was the first year they attained 1 hp per Cubic Inch with a primitave fuel injection system, and yes that motor was a 283 with 283hp..  The key to the 283 horsepower was the heads and the fuel injection.  I think I can make this work.  Now I need a rebuild of the TH350 transmission .... Body work is coming along nicely.  I am gonna need a place to spray it ... or I can use my friends field again.  Again any 57 Chevy parts are welcome!!!  I'll need a good intake / cam / and carburetor for the 283.  Isn't there a song called "1 piece at a time" by Johnny Cash! Yep...unmute and enjoy the music.

Hello all,
     I have started working on one of my long awaited projects.  When I was 8 years old my father bought me my first car.  A 1957 Chevy Station wagon.  We took most of it apart and had it blasted, and primered when I was around 18.  We worked on this car together and this is where I learned to love cars and do the things I can do.  I am working on the body work this winter and will eventually need to get it painted and get a new engine and transmission.  I have both a 350 tranny (that needs a rebuild) and the original 283 V8 but the Heavy wagon will need many more horses than the stock 283 will be willing to put out.  Maybe some 202 heads and a cam /intake and 4 barrel.  I just wanted to put some feelers out in case anyone has or comes across anything, has some double hump heads lying around, or has any necessities or 1957 parts in general.  Thanks!!

Mike D

I bought this Del Sol with the intention of using it as a commuter, but at the moment I need cash and not gas mileage!.  It can get up towards 40 mpg and is a great ride.  It has newer tires, front brakes, paint, plugs etc etc.  The runs great and is a blast to drive on survey roads with the top off.  It has 150K miles and purrs like a kitten.  I am asking $4,250 or best offer here is my craigslist post.  Thanks...Mike,D

Joe,
     It looks like Robert Clemons changes didn't save, he pre-registered as a Mustang, but he is the one we changed to the Miata (John Peddy's old one). I am sure you know the class.   Also Joe .... you did a great job today, lots of us recognized you had to deal with timing/registration/car problems.  Glad you made it thru the day!

We could try and enlist Chuck Norris to sway the vote.  My uncle once saw him start fire in less than a second by rubbing together two ice cubes.

Post it as a poll on the website .... and no Russians this time Smiley

I am in favor as well. 

If we change the rule.....anyone can do it (except those with 1 seat) thus making any talk of an "advantage" irrelevant.  I have even thought about ax-ing with other clubs because of this so I can learn more/quicker.  I also believe it will bring more people to us.  I have several friends that would like to try but not in their own cars, they want to use mine and I am always hesitant to offer it up because of this rule.

I always enjoy seeing your work.  It's both inspiring and depressing at the same time.  Inspiring because it can be done and depressing because I know I couldn't do it.  Looks great!!

Yikes ... Now that is cringeworthy.

They say that Chuck Norris can cut thru a hot knife.....with butter

When Chuck Norris sleeps.......he sleeps with a pillow under his gun.

Haha ... Me too Paul and especially Mindy have taught me so much over the last 2 years!!! I thought, for a moment, that I (grasshopper) had finally made my teacher proud.

I liked the results better the first time, when I was quicker than both the Inskeep brothers. LOL

Thanks for the quick corrections.

Chuck Norris actually died 20 years ago ... But the Grim Reaper is still too afraid to tell him.

Ben,
     Someone turned it in on Sunday, but I can't say for sure where it ended up.  I saw it in the trailer on the table.  I am sure it will find its way back to you at the next event!

Thanks for the quick posting of results! Also thanks to Chris and Gunny for setting the course up, I had a blast.  Also want to say a special thanks to Gunny for taking a minute (even though I was frustrated) to ensure I got a good run on the books and ultimately helping me get my best run of the day.

I do want to say thanks to Joe for his hard work and diligence around scoring and timing....as well as trying to implement this new methodology.  We have had a handful of hiccups in the software around registration and he has also been very engaged in that arena.  Between Mindy, Joe and myself we have been able to make the ends meet with registration. The new set up does make registration much easier.  Last year at times we would have 20 or 30 folks asking for special arrangements.  Now we just check folks in and wait till the drivers meeting.  Much less drama and attitude at registration these days.

You will be amazed by the tires I certainly was! Also a great choice on the rim.  I met the owners at SEMA last year, we were amazed by the process and how they machine down a block of metal into one piece rim.  The owners/employees are genuinely nice folks.  In my opinion Forgeline is the best.

Ahhh yeah sweet....the helmet...all makes sense now.  I like the maroon.  My best friend's dad has one that is maroon. 
23  General / Autos and Autosport / Re: Factory Five Cobra Build on: March 27, 2016, 11:47:56 AM
What color is it going to be? Gotta love a Cobra!

25  General / Open Forum / Re: Dyno Day on: March 05, 2016, 05:00:49 PM
Had an awesome time at Dyno Day.  Thanks David and everyone else who put this together.  Got to see and hear approximately 5000 horses (total) running down Laburnum! I think I may have made the least hp at 112hp and 104tq (top speed 114mph) all which I am thrilled with.  Stock my car had approx 90whp.....26 years and many miles ago.  I'll take it! My son and I have put many hours in this thing over the winter (so did Jeff and Audie before me) and we got 22 more than stock.  That's 9 more horses and 2 ftlbs more than my estimation.  Good Isht!
