1966 Olds 442 W30 MuscleCar Nationals Race & Show Fun
Great memories racing and showing my 1966 Olds 442 Tri-Carb W30 with
friends at the MuscleCar Nationals in Sacramento. I restored it to showroom
condition in the 1980's, including balancing and blueprinting the original
Olds 400 engine and drivetrain to factory specs as documented in the 2-part
article I wrote for Musclecar Review magazine. It's all 442 including the
original Olds 400 "E" block, heads, carbs, intake/carbs, etc, and raced on
DOT legal street tires through mufflers and full Exhaust per Musclecar Nationals factory stock
rules. I raced my first 442 in stock eliminator during the 1960's, and had
a ball with my friends showing and racing this one at various events around
the country. I hope you enjoyed sharing this trip down musclecar memory
lane with me.

This video is dedicated to my good friend John Seguin, who died shortly
after he videotaped some of the racing scenes in this video for me. Here's
to John and our other friends who share our passion for cars: cars and
shows may come and go, including the MuscleCar Nationals, but our memories
make sure that "Good Friends are Forever".

Truck Fest 2013: Smokey Big Rigs Burnouts & Drag Racing Revealed
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) When you think of a Big Rig Semi...you probably
don't immediately think of drag racing...or do you? This weekend at
Bandimere Speedway just outside of Denver, Colorado hundreds of Big Rig
Semi trucks lined up on the drag strip to see which one is the kind of the
mile high drag strip and which one is the fastest mile high pickup
dragster. Can a big rig run a sub 20 second quarter mile? You bet. Can a
big rig run a sub 15 mile....no problem. Can a Big Rig run a sub 10 second
time? You'll have to watch the video to find out. In another fun and
informative TFLtruck video we see what happens when the Big Rig Semi Trucks
line up behind the Christmas Tree.

OLDSMOBILE POLICE CARS
HARD FOUGHT COLLECTION OF OLDSMOBILE POLICE CARS. THANKS TO THE
CALIFORNIA HIGHWAY PATROL THE 1967 DELMONT 425 WAS EVIDENTLY THE PEAK OF
OLDS POLICE CAR PROWESS LEADING INTO THE 68 YEAR WITH A BETTER ENGINE IN
THE 455. THE 68 AD AT 2:36 WARNS IN THE LAST PARAGRAPH THAT CALIFORNIA AND
MISSOURI ARE USING OLDS AND NOT TO TRY AND OUTRUN THE COPS BECAUSE THESE
CARS WILL EAT YOU ALIVE.
Speed and Supercar Magazine, 1968 interview with Oldsmobile police
equipment engineer Ted Louckes:S&S: Do you use hopped-up engines in your
LOUCKES: Not in the standard packages. But we offer optional "Police
Apprehender" engines for both the F-85's and big cars that are highly
recommended for highway work. For the F-85's we use just the regular
400-cubic-inch 442 engine with high compression, big-valve Toronado heads,
Quadrajet carb, 286-degree hydro cam and dual Exhausts. For the big cars we use pretty much
the same package, but on the 455 cubic inch block. This latter combination,
incidentally, is not offered in any of the passenger cars. It's a very
strong engine. We have no trouble meeting the CHP requirements of
standing-start acceleration to 125 mph in two miles with either engine.
S&S: What do you see in the future for police car development?
LOUCKES: It's pretty much a problem of designing police cars with
considerably better performance, handling and braking qualities than the
hotter cars on the road. We can do this as long as the government agencies
that buy the cars are willing to pay the necessary price. But we're more
concerned right now with future federal safety legislation and how it might
affect police cars. For instance, what if all cars, including police cars
are required to have 80mph speed governors in a couple of years? How could
the police overtake a speeder? We're afraid of laws like this because we've
seen how the new brake requirements have affected the use of sintered
metalic brake linings. It could happen again.

Sportsman Drag Racing in the '70s and '80s
The grass roots of Drag Racing, the weekend warriors, my old racin'
buddies, as we were 25 or 30 years ago. Includes some exhibition cars too.
These are pictures and video that I took at US 131 Dragway in Martin, MI,
Central Michigan Dragway in Stanton MI, Brainerd International Raceway in
Brainerd Minnesota, and Indianapolis Raceway Park in Indianapolis IN. The
soundtrack is just me jammin' on some Foreigner and Police.
