Post subject:  Greetings from Long Island Car guy

Hi Folks,

My name is Greg and I am a Car nut, drag race enthusiast, and joined this forum to learn more about setting up Carburetors for the track and street. I am mainly a Mopar guy, but I do go crazy when I see any musclecar coming down the road, Chevy, Ford, you name it.

I have a 1968 Dodge Charger R/T that is a street car, but I slowly turned it into a part time Drag strip ride. I have been working on cars as a hobby since the late 80's, and became self taught after being ripped off many times by some local no-good shops.

I look forward to talking to you all here on the forum, and thanks for the welcome, Ken.

Greg.

You're welcome Greg.

I was somewhat of a Mopar guy myself back in the 1970s and even built a couple of 440s during that time. Last one I built was a .030 over 440 sixpack with a set of mildly ported 67 heads that was balanced and ran a Racer Brown Hyd cam. Eventually put that engine in a 71 Dodge Demon with a 4 speed and a "mini" tub back end.

Ennywho, glad you decided to join us and if you got some pics of those Chargers I'm sure the guys would love to see them down in the "Show Your Stuff" section. ;-)

Welcome Greg,
Lots of good guys and info here. I'vs always said "why pay somebody to stuff things up when you can stuff it up yourself for nothing, and hopefully learn something."
