Ron Spilled the beans!

Postby traysvega » Sun Oct 25, 2009 5:22 pm

Yes the rumor is true .I traded the Phord stang for a old POS vega.Yes it needs a ton of work from the front to the rear.But hey,I own it and dont owe on it so,,,its all good!.Im back..!!!

from 20 feet,looks half way decent,up close,not so hot lol.
Image
lots to do.what have I done?
Image

Motor is a 355,dart heads,12.5 to 1 with a comp roller 630 lift x2.Some decent parts here and there.Only prob is the Turbo 400 with a 10 inch converter that will only stall 3k on the foot brake(no brake).So,I also got a glide with the trade(no brake) and a 9 inch veter,that I prob wont use.
Rear is a ladder bar(back half) with a ford 9 inch with a 33 spline strange axles,spool, and a little ol 4.56 gear.

Oh, after driving 600 miles round trip sat. to pick it up,Ron talked me into running it today at TRi-state.First pass ran a 7.57 spitting and sputtering in second.(battery voltage was low I believe)Charged it up,and then ran a 7.34 with a laughable 1.61 60. First round dialed a 7.36.I Redeyed! Brake torqued it and car rolled forward.Oh well.still ran a 7.38 with a 1.73 60 lol!!!!..
Best of all,I won spilt the pot!!!!!lol 142.00 plus a 10.00 gift certificate to napa!....Best weekend I've had in a long time.

I like the hood. It is time period correct. When I was a teen everyone was running one on their cars. I was telling Jake that a couple of days ago. Nova, Chevelles all ran them both the short and tall version. \:D/\:D/\:D/I guess it was the predecessor to the snorkel. I even seen them mounted forward and backwards like the ford teardrop. O:)

Thanks Barry.Its really a 20 footer(seriously).Its really rough up close(body and interior) ,but nothing I cant handle(I hope).I think If i just take my time and do what I can when I can i'll be fine.Instead of searching for the 9's again right away.lol.I just pulled a valve cover and it does have dart 230 alu heads,same ones on my 388 I built.Hint,Hint.But of course I will post pictures and updates.Jeff (invegarating) can hopfully help me with a few details concerning a stock front /backhalf vega stuff.His car is so well thought out.Maybe it will save me some time and headache doing a few things the way hes done them.I've Gots all winter! \:D/\:D/\:D/

Thanks abunch Mel.It really felt good sunday sitting behind the wheel of the car I love so much(vega!).I've never been so excited about a car I know needs more work than anything I've ever owned(except the chevelle,maybe) lol.But,it will work out.Jeffs shootin me some ideas(pics of his ride) on what I can do to clean her up abit.she'll prob just be a 10.0 or slower for awhile til I get everything else in order,but I m sure to re-new NHRA license next may ;-);-). that little ol 355 just very well may tun into a budget 383 this winter.First major plans are to get the glide/brake and 8 inch verter in there,pull the motor and just lookie(yeah right). pop a 5. plus gear set in the rear.Wire up the delay box I already have.new rear tires and let-er eat!.then next winter,maybe a complete cage,and some body work....and the list goes on. 8-[
this is what I'd like it to look like except with a bigger cowl.(which I ordered a 5 incher on sale today.lol)
