Re: `70 GTX

Re: Mopar EuroNationals 27/28/29 July. Santa Pod Raceway

My first time to Euro Nats and Santa Pod. Drove 3 hours to get there on Sunday, we turned up and the racing was cancelled. So we had a burger, looked at a few wet cars, got back in our car and drove the 3 hour journey home. Not a great day. Shame that Santa Pod couldn’t have mentioned it was cancel...

Re: Mopar EuroNationals 27/28/29 July. Santa Pod Raceway

Well the weather was rubbish.. What a bummer after all those weeks of sunshine the weather had to break over our weekend. It would have been a great Nat's too. Well, poop happens every so often... we do live in England. Over the weekend several people asked me if this year was going to be the last N...

Re: MOPAR EURONATIONALS..SANTA POD SOON

Just a reminder..... if you would like to run your car up the quarter mile: Another change at the Mopar Nat's for 2018 is the Top Sportsman cars have moved their series to Rockingham, so they won't be at Santa Pod Raceway. This clears a lot of track time. If you want to run your car up the 1/4 mile ...

Re: Mopar EuroNationals 27/28/29 July. Santa Pod Raceway

The Mopar Nat's is getting closer. It's nice the Nat's don't clash with the Silverstone Classic this year. That means I can take my car to both events.... Silverstone and the Mopar Nat's.... Which car's that Jim? Convertible Challenger? Not the Merc i presume :shock: :lol: Errr, probably my Mustang...

Blimey Andy.... I remember it being originally a silver car. But yes it was painted red. You've got to make allowances for me, it was a long time ago.

Ah yes, I think you're right John. The first car I remember seeing Tony with was a 1968 Silver Charger R/T (now a regular at the Nat's painted black) and that was in the early/mid 80's. The 'Bird came later.

If memory serves that was Tony O's back in the '70's, was also on the cover of a book around that time. Assume it has long since left the country, I'm sure Jim Wilson can fill in the details better than me, him being that bit older :lol: Not that much older I reckon! Yes, that was Tony O's car back...

No power valves or enrichment devices in the outboards and that is the set up's Achilles heel. You get the legendary "Stumble" as you have just opened up 2 x 500 cfm carbs and not added any fuel with them. The engine soon overcomes this, but it is always noticeable if you floor it hard. That's part...
