Out of the Blue
« on: October 02, 2018, 11:30:18 PM »
How about this for a shocker. My car featured on a web site about classic cars. I remember a guy asking me a lot of questions about my car last year at the High River Show and Shine. He was pretty intrigued and said he would like to take some photos for a web site he writes for. I didn't think anything of it but low anf behold, a year later I stumbled across this....

The guy got most of it right but I didn't turbo charge it, I built a dual plenum fuel injection intake. Oh well, pretty cool anyway.

When did you put buckets in it. And what are the new dyno numbers?

I put the buckets in last year. You are going to have to wait for the dyno numbers, Toma still doesn't have his dyno set up again and I haven't taken the time to go to someone else as it hasn't really been a priority. Don't worry, when I do, you will be the first to know!

The buckets are actually early Corvair with 64 Olds Cutlass covers.

Wayne, how you doing? How's the flipper?

The guy must have messed up reading his short hand fro the notes he took. I mentioned I had put Hydro-boost in from a 2003 Silverado and he must have just written down boost. no turbo on Carmen.
