Glad your ok John and i hope this isn't the start of heart problems for you!

Back when i was at my heaviest point my Dr. thought i has Cardiomyopithy(not sure if i spelled that right) but after losing all my weight over the last 4 1/2 years everything has been good. I think i managed to turn things around just in time before i developed any major irreversible issues! 

In Topic: FINALLY! It's warm outside!

We have officially hit 80 degrees in the NYC area. Considering we had frost a few days ago, I'd say things are looking up!

I think we parole the Barracuda and turn it loose.....


Turn it loose John! I turned the Duster loose about a week ago, it was still kinda cold out but i had to drive it!

Is it the Petty kit that is being re-released or another version?

Goes to a model show wearing Mopar racing shirt, buys Mopar 1:1 parts and a Mopar kit, mission successful. I was actually able to depress one of the valve springs fairly easily, so I think I'll be alright.



1971 340 J Code heads will be hot tanked and disassembled then sent to my machinist who will Magnuflux them among other things. Couldn't resist the '69 GTX for $7 Sealed inside.



That's a good score! I have a set of J heads on my Duster, they flow pretty good! I recently found a 340 left at a local machine shop over 2 years ago and the guy never came back, i might be able to get it for almost nothing very soon!
