Where It All Began

1970 Chevelle

How did I get into old Fords you ask?

Or when was I diagnosed with this incurable disease as my wife would so lovingly put it. How did I get started in the whole old car thing, particularly cars and trucks of the Blue Oval realm? It didn’t happen overnight, more of a slow fade I guess you’d call it, but I suppose my upbringing would probably have something to do with it. It started out rather early for me, being I was rushed to the hospital on the day I entered into the world in my Dad’s 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396.

1/4 mile Marauder close to hitting the strip!

Hopefully by the end of the month, the 1/4 mile Marauder will make it’s way down the tarmac at Spokane County Raceway. Just for fun we’ve tentatively set up a grudge match with a 2009 Subaru Legacy. It’s the classic new vs. old battle! Can the time-tested 2-barrel 390 in a 4500lb relic run down the all wheel drive, lighter, late-model Subaru which is sure to get off the line first? Stay tuned to find out…….
