I'll take 50lbs of weight reduction lol 30 would even be nice
Eat less carbs and you'll drop that much in no time.
Lol that would be nice as well lol
WOW 16 years
So close, yet so far.
Yeah, and there is one hell of a difference between 45 yrs old when this first started compared to 62 now. I am starting to lose interest anybody understand that. Personally I think you missed the dang boat.
X2 I just turned 54, I was thinking the same thing, I wanna get this **** done NOW, never know whats around the corner
By this ****, Im talking about my GS, I wanna run it hard, see what she'll do, wear it out again before Im worn out
I can't help but wonder how many of the guys on the list are still alive and/or are even interested anymore. I'm 64 and I have given up on ever building a Buick 350 in my lifetime.
You don't have to build one. Maybe just put together a nicely painted up 350 carcass, on a stand looking cool as garage ART!
No tolerances required!
Mart we already have one of those, stop looking at it. lol.
62,64, 66 it won't matter I will still run this car and keep working on it. This may just take longer and probably will not have enough money to make it happen the way I want it to since I really have to make a IRA run to retirement.
I would like to know how many on that original list are still in this or gave it up. 15 years is 15 years no matter how you cut the pie that is a long time from thought to actual product and we tare still waiting. oh well we are just the forgotten ones.
Going to have to build a 350 aluminum block now are there really any 350's in the junkyards?
If you can do it at 82 you can do it at 62.
All the bop stuff gets crushed and the good other GM and Ford are picked clean.
on original list , just rec'd SP3 a few weeks ago . of course the rest of my "good" motor is a pile of saved up parts but hey , getting closer .
age : 67 , also getting closer ! when me and the ground hog go off the cliff I want to be able to get some good distance .
I'll never build a 350 but at 65 I'm still hoping to complete the stroker 300 with a set of TA Rover heads and the blower. Got most of the parts now except the heads, pistons and a few odd bits. At least those heads are available. And how odd is that?
i'm 60 something and being a former old world r&d/experimental machinist still think of ways to make the dragster go faster with home made parts/modifications. i get bored real quick and need to do things. when i finally stop is probably when i'm dead. anyways, beating the youngsters is all ways fun.
