About valiantboy’s Garage

 

About me and my passion for cars

Die hard Mopar. I'd rather build and race Mopars. Kinda like rootin for the underdog. There is so much factory support for Ford, Chevy and even Toyota that the Dodge teams are basically on their own. It doesn't help with the financial situation that the manufacturers are in..

Look back in racing history: the Ramchargers, Sox & Martin, Richard Petty.. these guys basically put Dodge on the map. All the r&d they did on THEIR OWN TIME. The legends of racing. Don't forget Grumpy Jenkins, Bill Maverick, Bob Glidden..

My first car

I hate to admit this, but the first car i ever bought was a 76 camaro. I was 15, I didn't know any better. I ended up selling it after i ran over one of my grandfathers sapling orange trees. I figured it would be safer for me if i did.

Car I wish I still had

My Valiant. Many many good memories in that car. First "performance" car I ever had. Was pretty damned quick too. It's in a better place now.

My dream car

Don't know if I have a "dream car" perse, theres a bunch of cars i'd love to have. '07 Z06, '63 Max Wedge Coronet, a Pro Stock Colt, '04 M3 just to name a few.

Well, it was partly a success. No major problems, found an oil leak that needs to be fixed. The car preformed well, soft on the launch, best 60ft was 1.53. No improvement yet. I need to get a hold on the suspension. Tune the ladder bars and get the car to...
