Vietnam Vet67's Achievements

MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. I worked at the Chrysler Technical Center for over 42 years doing race engine development. The Turbine Lab was across the aisle from me covering about a 1/4 of the building space on the first floor. They got to hear our race engines on the dynos making lots of noise and when we went down to their dynos all we heard was "whoosh". Pretty BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH cool.
  2. Chrysler had the first production turbine car in 1954 which was introduced to the public in 1953 when they installed it in a 1954 Plymouth. Chrysler was way ahead of GM on Turbine car development.

  4. Spent 1967 running around the jungles of Vietnam. The patch is our unit patch..............70th Combat Engineer Battalion
  5. 1970 Chevelle brochure http://www.lov2xlr8.no/brochures/chevy/70chevelle/70chevelle.html 1971 Chevelle Brochure http://www.lov2xlr8.no/brochures/chevy/71ceve/71ceve.html
  6. Been a die hard fan my whole life (77 years) and worked for Dodge Motorsports for 41 years doing race engine development for NASCAR, NHRA etc. Love all the changes over the years...................keeps the sport fresh and up to date. Can't live in the past forever. Don't miss the winner of a race having a 1 or 2 or even a 3 lap lead at the end like it used to be sometimes back in the 1960's and 1970's.
  7. Here is a link for the brochure for the 1954 Motorama showing all the cars. http://www.lov2xlr8.no/brochures/chevy/54cvm/54cvm.html
  8. We used to drive by Royal Pontiac with our Mopars and try to get them to come out and play................never happened.
  9. Scroll down till you see the engine and then hit the start button. https://www.ramtrucks.com/trx.html
  10. My buddy used Model Master 2719 Italian Red and Model Master 1744 Gold. Hope it gets you in the ball park.
