      As if one rag top wasn't enough lol. Had a 70 440 Challenger RT vert (RT can stand for rag top too) that was fully loaded. The X hated it and never wanted to go anywhere with the top down. Dumb ass me sold it. We divorced a couple of years later and I found a 71 340 Cuda HT with my new wife and kept that car for 15+ years. Why I sold that one is another DA move. Had a reason but never full filled it. Don't ever sell them man!

        indy aluminum block
        572-13 heads. they got 410 cfm out of them
        solid roller 284/290 @.050 .800"
        jessel 1.7 rocker arms

          dyno sheets. the top two are with the 3x manifold and dominator. the bottom two are with a mopar 337 manifold and 850 double pumper. that combo really runs out of steam fast! but still made 850 hp... I can not get my dyno sheets to work. when I figure it out I will post..

                  Wanted to run the shybird at the grudge/no prep race but it got rained out. Other then that I went once with Glenn/ hemibee68.

                    10-roger that. I'm thinking of going to the muscle car race. Not sure if I can swing it though.
