Hi everybody!
My name is Dale, I'm a dad with 5 great kids, I live in Bakersfield, CA. Famoso is my home track, hope to drive my '72 Grandé' soon. It's been sitting since '04, when I noticed water in the oil... ugggh! So I used that as an excuse to build my dream motor: 351c remanufactured block from PAW, ported and polished aussie heads and roller cam kit from Powerheads. Ross forged 9.5/1 pistons, milodon camgear drive, weiand single plane topped with a Demon 750, MSD ignition... etc. When I went to install the motor I couldn't get it to fit. So it sat for years. Last year, it turns out the motor mount was 'off' by a little bit. Needless to say, I have been busting my butt to get the motor running... Lots of work to get it driveable, but that won't be long now. Time has taken it's toll on the car, too. These pictures were taken yesterday!!

Welcome. I'm just in the process of putting my drivetrain back into my car. It can be a pain to get everything to fit when parts get changed. Good luck and get er done!

"I love my Hookers!" and "Get some Strange" probably have a different connotation to non automotive enthusiasts!
