Twin turbo BBC in a 63 LeMans at the
Flashlight Drags! A little faster
than it looks? I think he needs a cage and chute.

sounds of the track.
World's Greatest Wagon? - /BIG MUSCLE
• BIG MUSCLE GARAGE
Sometimes old cars break, it's just what happens. While some may see this
as an inconvenience, we here at /BIG MUSCLE took it as an opportunity to
expand our horizons, take a chance, and venture to a place we rarely
frequent - the drag strip. Our plan was to film, talk to and get an idea of
what racers go through when they run their cars down the 1,320. Everything
was going great, until that is, they told us WE could race. We showed up in
our 1992 Chevrolet Caprice wagon, aka, the Battle Wagon, so we knew we
weren't going to set any records. What we weren't prepared for though, was
the amount of fun we'd have running one of the slowest vehicles on the
planet, at one of the fastest places in Northern California.
1957 Pontiac Starchief Convertible
What a beautiful Starchief! As if it weren't beautiful enough, check under
the hood! This car really has it all. Triple carbureted 347 c.i. Pontiac
engine, dual range Hydramatic. 1957 was a beautiful year for Pontiac!
Notice that the "Silver Streak" chrome bands are absent from the hood,
supposedly at the direction of John DeLorean.

Watch as the times get better and better with a wheel stand. KING OF THE
TRACK 2012, TEST and TUNE
GAMBLER GRUDGE RACING
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2012
ALL CARS WELCOME!
If you can drive it....YOU CAN RACE IT!!!
King of the Track WALLY will be up for grabs this Saturday!
Winner of King of the Track will also receive FREE tech cards for the
ENTIRE 2013 Race Season at Barona 1/8 Mile Drags! The 1969 Caprice and
other full-sized Chevrolets were restyled with crisper body lines and front
bumpers that wrapped around the grille (again with optional concealed
headlights, for which headlight washers could be added as a new "one year
only" option) along with ventless front windows on all models. The 119-inch
(3,023 mm) wheelbase, inner bodyshell and framework were carried over from
the 1965 model -- along with the rooflines of pillared four-door sedans
(which were offered in lesser Impala, Bel Air and Biscayne series, but not
on Caprices, which continued only in two- and four-door hardtop choices
only). The station wagon was renamed the Kingswood Estate, but continued to
use exterior wood grain trim along with exterior and interior trim shared
with Caprice sedans and coupes. Inside, front seat headrests were now
standard equipment due to a federal safety mandate and the ignition switch
moved from the dashboard to the steering column and doubled as a lock for
the steering wheel when the key was removed, a Federal mandate that took
effect with the 1970 models but introduced a year earlier on all General
Motors cars except the Corvair.
The 1969 Caprice also offered a new GM-designed variable-ratio power
steering unit as optional equipment along with a seldom-ordered "Liquid
Tire Chain" option, which was a vacuum activated button that would spray
ice melt on the rear tires (UPC option code is "V75"). The standard engine
was enlarged to a 235 hp (175 kW) 327 cu in (5.4 L) V8 with optional engine
choices including a new 350 cu in (5.7 L) turbo Fire V8 rated at 255 and 300 hp (220 kW), a
265 hp (198 kW) 396 cu in (6.5 L) cubic-inch turbo Jet V8, and 427 cu in (7.0 L) cubic-inch turbo Jet V8s rated at 335 and 390 hp (291
kW). All V8 engines were now available with the three-speed turbo Hydramatic transmission for the first time
though the two-speed Powerglide was still offered with the 327 and 350 V8s.
The 1970 Caprice received a minor facelift featuring a more conventional
under the grille bumper replacing the wrap-around unit used in 1969 along
with new triple vertical taillights in the rear bumper. Power front disc
brakes and fiberglass-belted tires on 15-inch (380 mm) wheels were made
standard equipment along with a larger 250 hp (186 kW) 350 cubic-inch turbo Fire V8. Optional V8s included a 300
hp (220 kW) 350 and a new 265 hp (198 kW) 400 cu in (6.6 L) turbo Fire V8. At the top of the engine roster,
the big block 427 was replaced by a new (longer stroke) 454 cu in (7.4 L)
turbo Jet V8 offered in power ratings of
345 hp (257 kW) and 390 hp (290 kW). Both the 250- and 265 hp (198 kW) turbo Fire engines were designed to use
regular gasoline while the 300 hp (220 kW) 350 turbo Fire and both 454 turbo Jet engines required premium fuel. A
three-speed manual transmission with column shift was standard equipment as
in previous years but the floor-mounted four-speed manual with Hurst
shifter was dropped from the option list for 1970 as were the Strato bucket
seats and center console previously offered on coupes. Automatic
transmission options included the two-speed Powerglide on 350 V8s and turbo Hydramatic with all engines.
1957 Pontiac Star Chief 4 door hardtop
I really like this car..the two tone color scheme is apparent with the
outside and inside colors...if only cars today had such matching color
schemes! The rocket motif is apparent on the side and back end of the car.
Note the tremendous detail...twin rocket ships on the front fenders,
chrome bows in the interior roof line...very stylish!
1975 PONTIAC GRAND VILLE BROUGHAM CONVERTIBLE 455 V-8
Here's an acquisition of July 20, 2012! This is a 1975 Pontiac Grand Ville
convertible in its first-year color of Arctic Blue (4,519 produced), the
last year for the convertible in the full-size GM line-up and the only
non-Cadillac model made in its highest trim level as a convertible as both
Olds and Buick convertibles were made on the Delta 88 and LeSabre trim
lines. The Grand Ville first appeared in 1971 as the top of the line with
Bonneville replacing the Star Chief. This was also the last year for the
Grand Ville as Bonneville once again became Head Chief in '76. In '71-'74,
the 455 engine was standard equipment, but was replaced by the 400 in '75
as emission and gas mileage regulations took their toll. The 455 could be
ordered as an option, though, and this car, with 62K miles, is equipped
with it, as well as air-conditioning.
