    That’s a good story. Evenly matched competition can be fun no matter how much power is involved.

    Anyone know of a shop or guy around these parts that knows how to rebuild 8 3/4 rear end? Evena good 4×4 shop should know how!

    Mopardude, here are a couple of names for having a differential rebuilt.

    Carburetor Performance – Gary at (608)221-3172

    Bailey Motor Sports – John Bailey (608)222-5262

    These are both Madison area businesses.

    I will see about some more possibilities.

    Yep, I’m pretty sure that GTO Man knows a couple people. I can’t say though, I don’t have the details, sorry. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Ok cool! I will sit and wait patiently for his response! Drogar-BigGrin(LBG).gif

    That’s a good question. I will ask around. That is one thing I haven’t had to have done yet, knock on wood. I am dropping off my car Monday to get a new clutch so I will ask the shop where I take it who they recommend. We plan on putting information on the site about some local resources in Southern Wisconsin for doing different kinds of work.

    I was very surprised when I heard they were discontinuing Olds. They were a well made automobile with good designs, they had some of the best models of any of the divisions. I thought the Aurora was an excellent car. I think they regret it now. I bet they lost some sales to the foreign after they stopped it.

    I used Charles Bronson because I liked his style. He wouldn’t take #@$% from anyone. He made some classic movies like Death Wish and The Mechanic, among others. Unlike him I am easy-going.

    I like all the Avatars especially Mike’s, alot of creativity involved there.

    There is no creativity used in the styling of today’s cars. 95% are just boring, if you want anything distinctive you have to pay for it.

    NASCAR has made some… interesting changes, the Luck Dog Pass for example, it is Ok but it also intersting to see drivers 1+ lap down battling the leader and winning to get back on the lead lap. Favorite Racetrack would either be Chicagoland, Birstol, or Talledega, There are a lot of good rookies out there now, the veterans know have to work harder…drive harder to win.

    Nascar has certainly been getting alot of exposure. Alot of times the most interesting racing takes place in the back. With the rules changes the sport has certainly changed some. The race for the chase was good last year, better than I thought it would be. I wish there was a little more distinction between the cars. Basically you look at the grill area to determine what type of car it is.

    It must of been interesting when they raced cars you could actually buy on Monday.

    I would agree they definately needed a more powerful engine. They had a real opportunity to be very creative and they blew it. It will be interesting to see if the new T-bird holds any collectible value in the coming years. I think they could of done more with the design. If they would of modeled it exactly after the original it would of been more popular. And like you said they should of priced it accordingly.
