    This is a shot of my 69 Sportwagon at our local track (Gimli) last weekend and ran 14.94 @ 90 mph. you can check out the video at
    http://media.putfile.com/SV100309 It is Xvid format if it dosen't work, you can get the codec here http://www.xvidmovies.com/codec/ The vid is about 8 mb

    The Mustang ran a faster 14.85 but I was quicker at the light .543 to his 1.12 reaction time, so I got to the end first.

    It's a stock 1971 455 out of a $300 car the only thing I did was put on a HEI with a curve kit.The wagon has factory 3.23 posi,air,tilt,sport wheel and is a 8 seater with power rear window.The car did run 14.79 on the G-tec on a cooler day, with no head wind.

    You all have some nice wagons there. I've always liked the Buick Sport Wagons, and maybe one day I'll find one.

    Sort of,
    I know she will run in the 11's but need to get the final Tune and correct set up. Still learning about her. Went to 3:90 from 3:31 and did not see much gain? Had the same 60' but was spinning with the 3:90. Car definatly likes the 3:90 better. The car started to lean out and pop at the end of the run with the 3:90's as well.

    Just need to get her to launch, richen her up and MPH a little better and Ill be their!

    Maybe I could loose a little weight? It is a full weight car, nothing removed.

    Hey any advice on tire to run? I was running a 27.5 x 10" slick, think I may try a taller tire next year.

    What about tire pressure in the slicks? Im sure it is a little different then the norm with all the weight we have on the tires.

    Yeah Tony,
    I have done alot of work on her, have destroyed about everything you can think of one time or another. Is the wagon you have the same one I seen in Jamies yard several years ago?

    I have had more fun in my wagon street racing then you should be allowed to have. :3gears:

    Hey Dennis, the wagon you saw at Jamie's was actually kinda a slut car. It went from Jamie to me to Jamie to Bruce to a board member in Ohio. I put that one together and switched alot of the trim off it because it was better than mine. Jamie actually got that one back from me in a trade and then resold it to another board member. The one I own now I have had about 3 years. Couldn't justify 2 wagons. I was running a 28 x 10 on the wagon with the 390's and have to set it into OD at the top end of the track. Not quite enough rpm in the motor to carry it through. I agree 390's are alot more fun. I was running around 14 lbs of air in my MT's. Couldn't come out of the hole as hard as I like, but he car was feeling to loose at high speeds with less air. I run my GTO with 11 lbs on the same slick, but the wagon is a bigger, heavier animal. Take care Tony

    Well Tony,

    My wagon is a little loose at the high end as well, pretty fun though. It gets real squirrely out of the hole, I like it cuz you have to drive it. I even though it is only a 12's car it has the thrill of a 10 sec car because its all over the place.

    It is pretty well done now, I dumped some $$ into it to get it right. Running 4000 stall 9.5" converter with turbo 400. Really like the converter, drives like a normal car untill you nail it, got it from Jim Wiese. Put a 12 bolt out of a 71 Heavy Chevy a buddy found in a Junk yard. The Motor is a Stage 2 Aluminum headed mill built by Jim Burek, Dynoed at 587 ponies, no shortage of power, really runs good. I need to get the car to hook and she will run the number I want.

    Take care..
