MoparStyle Racing Update

February 2010

Big Red Ram

Changes for 2010 include a new aluminum block 588ci wedge motor from Diamondback Engines. This motor is the same basic formula as the engine that the car had run in 2008 and 2009 — except for more compression since we are using Manley Steel rods instead of the Weisco aluminum rods. After the new engine was installed — custom 2.25" headers were fabricated by Tin Man, and ceramic coated. Finally, the three year old clutch was replaced.

Texas Black Magic

My son Dallas is moving from driving a 72 Dodge Demon in Nostalgia Muscle Car, to driving a black 1965 Dodge Coronet in Nostalgia Super Stock. I raced this car previously as a 9-second bracket car — and made the necessary conversions to make legal in NSS. The engine is the Mega Block 540 that I ran in the car from 2005 to 2008. It has been rebuilt as a 580 ci. This car will most likely run in the C/FX class.

The Whale

The Whale is rounding third base and heading for home. It is a 1960 Plymouth 2-door Wagon that Mark Artis at Texas Thunder Performance has been getting ready for me. We were hoping to start out the NMCA season running it, but are still hopeful that it might be ready for Bowling Green. It will run the Diamondback Engines aluminum block motor I use to run in Big Red Ram — freshened with Manley steel rods and more compression.

Mz. Eliminator

I have a 78 Dodge Aspen for sale. I built this for my daughter to run in Nostalgia Muscle Car — but her priorities changed.
