PostSubject: My days of hot rodding, HAS STARTED!   Mon Apr 04, 2016 1:46 am

Today I was out with my dad going for a driving lesson is the '67 El Camino. I've been driving the '72 Bug, learning how to drive a 4 speed and that the 4 cylinder has pretty much 0% horses of get up and go power, my dad thinks its a good one for me to learn to drive on since no power equals no exhibition of horsepower tickets (yes those exist). So the Bug needs some work since the voltage regulator went kaput, so I got a treat of driving the Elky for a change. From 4 cylinder to hopped up small block. Yahoooooooo! So needless to say, I was having fun. A LOT of fun! That's why I titled this thread my days of hot rodding has started, cause it has. I saw that today. So heres how it went. My dad let me drive, and I take off. Really take off. Vrrrrrrrooom! I opened up the 4 barrels too. Let off and cruise normally, for a while. Then back at it briefly. I opened her up about 3 times and I had a lot of fun! I was lucky I didn't get an exhibition of horsepower ticket. But I made plenty sure there wasn't anyone around before I went hot rodding off.
So I found out how much fun it is to drive a car with a few horses under the hood. So I'm sorry to say, but I have a bad feeling that when I do get a '58 Plymouth, I will put a motor in there with some really good get up and go power. I have been thinking about a 440, cause its Mopar and I've heard that 440's run pretty good. Very Happy
