Hey Chargin', You're not gonna use another poster of Schitz Beer to promote this season are you? Reason I ask is, the folks here in Podunkville want to know-----laying all jokes aside---------you don't really drink that swill do you????????? Now we all just a bunch of Hillbillies here but there aint no way in HECK we would even pour that swill on the lawn let alone punish ourselves by attempting to drink it. Now we have some pretty back-woods folks here that think the four staples are Beer, Bologna, Doritos and Cable TV but even those folks won't touch Schitz. Except for maybe a radiator flush or in a pinch when the general store is out of Ridx. Around here it goes this way--------"When you say War-Steiner, you've said it all". We blame that on Big E.R. Now if a person from here don't care for Beer, he visits Leonard Leadbetter but ya gotta be careful, that stuff will hurt you!

Yes, Wisdonm is right Lefty. He and I have even knocked back some Schlitz tall boys at a car show! :)))
And don't tell me you don't like the poster of Cynthia Myers?!! r:r

Schlitz, now owned by Miller, decided about 10 to 12 years ago to find some guys that used to work at the old brewery and located the original early to mid-60's recipe. It's vastly different now than the "water" they were bottling 15 years ago.

To tell the truth though, all beer gets me so full these days that I only drink maybe one or two at a time. Most of the time its rye and ginger ale, or maybe some good Irish whisky. At my age, I can't waste time in anything I do, including getting----- well you know! lol

PS: Of course, if the girls from Germany, greater Podunkville and etc. offered me a Warsteiner, I surely wouldn't turn it down! I might even tip one with ER and I'm sure my crew chief, Lafontaine, would lap it right up.

DT, I take it you used a CRANKSHAFT from a 283 and installed it in a 327. That would give you a 302, A 283 piston is 3.875" and a 327 is 4.00" so a 283 piston in a 327 is Not going to work but the crank does. That 302 swap was done around here too before GM started making them. Guess I should check out Homer Shockey's "327" and see if that is what he has done. Knowing Homer, I figure he jerked it out of an old School Bus or maybe a Biscayne. He could find more speed parts in the scrap heap than I could at the speed shop. For all I know, he could have gone the other way, 327 Crankshaft in a 283 and has a 307. Homer was Champ one year with what he said was "A Turd Motor out of a Chevy Pickup". Knowing Homer, that's just what it was.

It's a funny thing DT Dave, I can remember how them parts swaps was did but I have trouble remembering where I left my glasses and have to stop and think about how to tie my shoes at times. I can remember a mans name that drove a 57 Chevy 50 years ago but can't remember the password I added to my bank account last week. I woke up one day and realized I was one of those "Old Farts" I used to laugh at. I have hundreds of racing stories to tell but nobody wants to hear em. Its no big deal though, I usually just tell them to my cat, she sits and listens to all of em. Aint being an old guy fun?

..............   I woke up one day and realized I was one of those "Old Farts" I used to laugh at.  I have hundreds of racing stories to tell but nobody wants to hear em. .........


George, Respectfully I could not disagree with you more..........no one is getting any younger and once they are gone , so are the racing stories to be told. It doesn't matter who you are or what your involvement in the sport was, everybody has a story to tell. Everything in the sport is different these days...to the point that it has disenfranchised a lot of what was the hard core fans of the past....I know, I was once the hard core fan.

I really started to pay a lot of attention to the local scene in the late 70's ... so my story telling capabilities would be from that time frame forward. Prior to that I did go to a lot of races locally with my folks, but I guess I was on the wrong side of the fence as the stories that where told to me later on in my life centered around the activity in the pits, on the track or else where.

If anyone has a story to tell, then tell it....doesn't matter who you are or where your from......what you have to say is a link to the past.....once the stories are not told anymore, then the memory is gone forever.
I for one want to read any story that anyone wants to tell.

Well, painting went undone at the Six Feet Under shops this weekend. Apparently, the Asiatic-Rheumatic-Pneumatic-Mad Cow-Avian Bird-Hoof and Mouth-Root Rot-Black Plague-Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini-Influenza of the Northwest Passage has descended upon me and the entire crew. So, the old Plymerf sits untouched in his shed...just sitting there...waiting....

Maybe in a day or two...when the antibiotics kick in....

I swear, I'm short of gargling with Lysol, if I thought it would help....

That is one really cool '56 Chevy. Especially like the color and simple graphics. Good Job. fbr IMHO the '56 Chevy is the second prettiest body style from Chevrolet, right behind the '65 Chevelle - and both make great short-track racers. maddr
