Post #1 by turtlejam » Sat Dec 30, 2017 7:24 pm

Hi guys and gals,
My name is Greg,i'm 53 and have always had quite a few cars and projects over the years.None of my cars were expensive or car show quality but I've enjoyed them.My taste in cars is all over the place.I'll list the ones that were drivers.If anyone wants to see any pics you will have to talk to my ex wife.She was/is a bitter person and took anything that was dear to me including my 60 harley panhead that I built and had for years.

Fords
65,70,82 gt and 89 gt mustangs
51 ford sedan chopped 4 inches,mustang II front suspension,8" rearend,sbc and auto trans.
29 chopped model A coupe with a 322 buick engine,4 speed,9" rearend,heavy 32 front axle,etc.
1931 stock model a sedan.

Mopars
66 dart gt
69 dart GTS it came from the factory with a 383.
68 sedan formula S 340/4 speed barracuda.
67 sedan flat sit 3 speed barracuda.
71 roadrunner with 383 magnum 4 speed,it was plum crazy purple.

GM
78 trans am,in 82 I supplied 454 block/heads they built with single carb.On a legit dyno it put down a little over 500 hp.
82 Z28 camaro

Off brand
59 2 door wagon Rambler American with sbc/350 trans/10 bolt rearend.
81 amc spirit
70 amc hornet

Foreign
70 chrome bumper mgb
69 chrome bumper mg-gt
79 rubber bumper mgb
80 mgb I put an aluminum 215 buick engine/camaro 5 speed trans in.

62 volvo pv 544 that i'm going to put a 200/T5 in.I have stock engine,trans,etc. removed.
57 rust free volvo pv 444 in the garage on jack stands now.

I was glad I find this site because I picked the 200 because it's the dimensionally the smallest 6 I could find and I can make a lot more power/torque then a B18 volvo engine.

I haven't done many introductions on forums so mods feel free to delete if it's to much info for a intro.

I should add I buy and sell cars as a side line to my job.

Welcome to the Ford Six site turtle jam, there is always room for another gear head. Good luck on your 200 build. :thumbup: :nod:

I edited my profile to add that I buy and sell older cars as a sideline to my regular job.
