Was it by a Nailhead, Rocket, Studey, Packard, DeSoto, Dodge, AMC, Lincoln, Caddy, Pontiac or Packard V-8 -- the ones the class was created for.


(Are all of those still out there just waiting to update their cage, fire system, seat, head and neck restraint, fire suit, tires, parachute, etc. -- but, outside of that, ready to run?)

Who wrote the rule? It should have had a 1962 cut off date. Obviously the people who wrote the rule didn't know much about early technology. A late 1960s Buick Nailhead, SBC or Olds could be made to run fast on gas, Using over-the-counter speed equipment. The trouble is that now-a-days it's getting hard to find these engines at the boneyard, e-bay sellers have jacked up the prices on old speed parts. So your low-cost class now costs as much to run as any other. If my old roadster still existed, rule changes would make building a new car less expensive than updating the old.

If you truly want to lower costs go to a spec-engine. New iron head and new iron block with a single 4 barrel spec Holly. No porting and your choice of cam.

Beef Stew doesn't have his head where the sun-don't-shine. His head is in SoCal where the unusual is an everyday happening.
