This is my wife and her 496 Chevelle. Pump gas, flat tappet,dual plane,
3:31 gears, 3500 stall,full Exhaust,
3800 lbs, old ET Streets. She uses it to get groceries and takes it to her
Mary Kay appointments. All three of our kids LOVE riding in the back and
She averages 13 mpg on the highway with the 750 double.
Update 7/07- On 93 octane, the budget 496 made 548HP at 5900 rpm and 574TQ
with big tube (2 1/4") headers at the crank on a Superflow 902 Dyno.
UPDATE 11/08- After three years and 5k street miles, 10 Dyno pulls, and 50+ passes at
the track, Leah has run a best of 11.57 @115.48 on pump gas and M/T Drag

1/2 throttle launch went 11.07@120mph.

This is a video of my wife holding the camcorder as she rides in the first
run down the dragstrip of a 1961 Ford falcon with a 460 engine.This is the

Ry Cooters album Flathead, "ridin' w/ the blues"- the song.
8 Second Chevelle Infineon Raceway Labor Day Bracket Drags
Quest for the 8's.
This was a series of 8 second passes we made at Infineon Raceway on Labor
Day 8/5/09. We had been battling severe tire shake in a quest for the 8's.
We took 4 degrees of timing out of the engine over the entire RPM range and
it enabled the car to get up on the tire. The car clocked its fastest 60 ft
time to date 1.234. Not only did we make back to back 8 second passes but
we dialed an 8.90 an ran an 8.90 and also a 8.89. We were very pleased with
the results of the weekend. The Governors Cup is next week at Sacramento
Raceway Park. Were looking for the 8.70's. We'll post the results.

DIY: A better garage door seal for free - keep the wind out!
This takes 5 mins to do and costs nothing. It keeps the garage door pressed
up against the outside rubber seal so cold air is not blowing through the
gap. I do this to the doors in my heated shop every fall and then undo them
every spring. Now the heater runs much less!
