    ROCKAUTO selling old expired stock.

    I ordered some AC Delco spark plugs wires for an 81 Trans Am back around 2015-16. They were dated 1994, still new in the old box. They worked perfectly.

    A modest proposal

    I think it is because some people feel that this is the best racing Nascar has ever produced and they won't hear of anyone bringing up that back in the 80's-90's the racing was far superior to what is presented today. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted...

    Hot rod 90 deg gm v6, Chevy or Buick?

    If I remember correctly, didn't NASCAR's Busch series run a V6 back in the 90's for a bit? If you could locate one of those, that would be an excellent foundation for some V6 power.

    I watched the 1981 Daytona 500 on YouTube today and it was nice to see that for starters, the cars actually looked like the models they were representing.

    Daytona 500 engine related question

    Its that fine balance between just enough airflow and restriction. That is why you always see them cleaning the grille on every stop and either adding or removing tape. This new generation engine can withstand super high water temps much better than the older designs.

    Converting 1970 396 to Fuel Injection

    Several years ago I converted a 1981 Pontiac Turbo Trans Am to EFI. I used the MSD Atomic EFI system. Costs have come down, but I had probably $3k in the whole system including fuel tank, ignition, etc.

    Glock 44

    Looks like Glock is having issues with these. Several of them have locked up and actually blown up the slide. Typical Glock using customers as Beta testers.

    Standard Cab Commercial

    My FIL just bought a new 2020 Silverado 2500 Regular Cab 4x4. It is hideous, but at least his has a chrome bumper to offset all that black grille. It is a basic work truck with just power windows and locks and I believe the window sticker was $42k and he got it for $38k.
