A Volkswagen Beetle with a blown Hemi? Oh yeah, quite unassuming! Let me take another hit of this Jack Herer Racing Fuel Plant to wrap my boggled mind around that! Holy Moly!
Hi mate, yeah that was the original release.I got it directly from Mr Soul way back on the OG forum.
I'm thinking it was even earlier, maybe 98 or so, but with my memory being what it isn't it could have been 2000 and hell if I could prove it one way or t'other.
Had no motor or trans. Car was unusual because it was a GTO w/389 auto with A/CSweet car, BB! Does it have the 389 in it? Stock 389 ran the quarter mile in 15.7 seconds at 92 mph. You have your work cut out for you to reach 13.99! To get my Grand National from 14.02 seconds to 10.20 seconds only took - money! And lots of it! lol
Good Luck with the rebuild!
Woah. Like I was saying I’d like to run 13 at 100You guys like the smell of racing huh?
My old car was a 69 Z28 with a full roll chasis, a bowtie marine block, brodix heads, full roller setup with rev kits and stud girdles, etc etc. On the bottle she'd get deep into the 9's, sometimes a high 8.
But.... my real kick was water. Unlimited offshore with big 44 foot duals, twins and triples.
Here's the little boats motor, it's in a 24 foot Schiada hull with a V drive and a turbo 400 manually shifted trans.
632 cube Donovan block, Velasco crank, Oliver rods, Brodix heads, Venolia pistons, all the usual suspects. Those are 2 big arsed RayJay R5 turbos huffing into a fresh water cooled Race Tech intake and intercooler, 1050 annular discharge dominator carbs.
And see that little stand bolted to the hull with the ring on it? Yea, that's for the skiers pull rope.
You know you're huffing race gas exhaust when you're skiing behind a 1800+++ horsepower boat (that's been clocked at 205mph at lake Mojave on the Colorado river).View attachment 46008
The Pontiac 421, 428, and 455 are the same block with a different bore and stroke. These are considered large-journal blocks. The 400 is small-journal block, not sure it is the same?BuzzardsBay said:I actually have a few Pontiac engines to choose from. 400, 455, and a 428 all the same block.

Also, the 428 was only made from 67-69, not really period correct for a 64. You ok with that? Some of them purists would about die if you did that!
Right now it looks like this! 14” a send mags...no motor, hood off...still has its 1976 Arizona plate on it and all its glass. No rust or bad dents...Hit Rods are like Cannabis and fishing. The things I’m interested are all dreams really. The search for the Holy Grail. Artwork.
i was not born in 1976 i start to smoke in the early 90'sI will agree with this.
However, in all fairness, I am not sure it is possible to compare the landraces I smoked in the 70's to the hybrids of the 90's to the strains of today. I have different knowledge and experience today than I did then. Also kind of judging on memory, and human memory has been proven to be quite faulty.
I remember once around '76 getting some 'Gold' that was sooo good. I decided to buy a bit and hopefully sell some and get some for free. Started out ok but then people started bringing it back and demanding their money back! WTF? The problem - they got too damn high and didn't like it. Thought maybe it was treated or something. Scared me a bit. I knew a scientist who said to send it to this lab and have it checked for insecticide, chemicals, etc. The report came back. Nothing but marijuana. To this day people still say that was the strongest pot they ever smoked. Even though they brought it back!
Would that pot seem that good today with the experience and knowledge of today? Compared to today's 26% THC strains? How do I compare things 50 years apart on only memory and old stories?
While I ponder this question I will take a hit of this Jack Herer Racing Fuel Plant and soon forget what the question was!
amazing" it's like the earlyest of the strain you rarely found the time of blooming annonce by the breeders"
Not sure if I am reading this right, but in the 1985 Seed Catalog, by the breeder Nevil, was announcing the time of blooming? For example:
