Greg is the name. I live in Queen Creek AZ. I presently have, not a daily driver, very highly modified Solara.

Now the age one is tough but here goes, 50. No laughing, I feel 30.

Not that fast. Have a look.

It's in pieces all over the country right now. The Block is in Texas, the heads are in Maryland, the Supercharger is in California and the car is in a shop in Arizona. When I get all the pieces back together it will be 300 (+) HP to wheels 12 second 1/4 mile V6 import. It was 13's before I broke it. Damn short cuts will get you every time.

Yes, I do have a B&M high stall torque converter. The tranny has been completely redone.

thats pretty cool...how did you get into doing that? i mean, if you dont mind my saying, the "import performance" crowd is typically a high school age group, and you are older than that...

I'm not really sure. I know I get bored easy since retiring from the military and I wanted something different to do. Here I am..

Hola!

Eron here. (It's pronouced "Aaron". Yes, odd spelling, but I'm an odd guy.) I'm 36, married, and I live smack between San Francisco and San Jose in the foggy state of California.

My lovely wife drives the good car (Land Rover Discovery Series II) while I drive a 2005 PT Cruiser, Touring Edition. I sold my '65 Dodge Dart not too long ago and have had to resort to tinkering on a '66 VW Bug.

I've always been a Mopar fan. Always always. My Dad started my Mopar fixation with his 1966 Dodge Dart GT, black with red interior. Gads but that car ruled. I was in it when he beat some punk kid in a 1969 Mustang fastback. I think I was 7 at the time... car was older than I was. The guy across the street from us (for most of my childhood) had a 1968 Charger R/T, 426 Hemi, 4 on the floor. That thing rattled windows.

My first Mopar was a 1972 Plymouth Duster (Gold Duster). 318 engine, auto transmission.... I beefed up the timing chain, put on headers and dual exhaust, moderate cam, Offenhauser intake, Carter Quadrajet, Hush Thrush mufflers, and I tightened up the front suspension. A buddy foolishly asked, "How fast do you think it'll go?" I pinned the speedometer in that car.

Man, I miss it.
