When i was 14-15, 77-78 we built dunebuggys. The tire sourse was the dumpster
behind the tireshops. So the choice was a few years old, lets say 72 isch.
Those i remember among the wide tires is Firestone wideoval, Goodyear Pollyglas
Pos-a-traction torque twister, Kelly Supercharger.

I went home friday morning, When i travel i try to chose backroads before the big main higways
that way you get to se more of the counbtryside.
Anyway i followed some small roads on a road map (you guys remember those?)
that was in the glovecompartment and ended up in a military exercise field ::)
I knew there had been in the past but was terminated, but obviously was retaken by the army
So there i was running with a lot, and i mean a lot of tanks when the Military police stoped me and asked
where i was going. I thanked the officer for protecting my country and told him i had no idea they where back
He let the tanks pass by and showed me a shortcut out of the area saluted me and sent me on my way
I went by and picked up a Daimler (Jaguar) frontend for the 36 Coupe, then i went to Stockholm to my friend Ollie.
He had made dinner so we ate and had a few beers.
Next day we went to his Garage,they are a bunch of guys that rents part of the parking garage under an
apartment building and and bought equpment like welders,lathe,mill,and such together

Ollies Garage neighbours -65 Dart

Ollies rear suspension mocked up

Front mockup

Darts new 8.2 inch Ford block, Ollie going to build for another garage neighbours 64 Falcon

A slightly modified Nova

I could have spent a long time taking photos in that garage but i had to continue my travel home.
Went by another friend in Uppsala that have a 46 ford coupe custom and a 30 tudor and a 61 olds 88
but camera was full so no pics from there.
Arrived home 10.00 at night mothers Mercedes performed well
used no oil,  averaged 19 mpg

There's only one head that will bolt up using all the bolt holes on the World block and it's not a head to write home about. 

Cooling has never been an issue, so I can't really say that the bigger holes are a plus. 

One thing I don't like about the FRPP block is that the caps aren't billet and the bolts are just regular bolts (not like ARP).   Now granted, I've made 800 hp with the 9.200" deck BOSS block, so it must not be an issue, but it just doesn't look as professional as the Dart and World blocks. 

FWIW, I haven't seen a Dart block in so long, I've forgotten what they look like.  They haven't been available in about 2 years.

On my way home now and i stopped over in Stockholm at may friend Ollie. He had just recieved a new Dart block out of the new castings
it was a beauty with realy thick cyl walls.But he have waited one and a half year. Got pics i can download tomorrow

Never seen sockets with that joint bit built in. Much shorter than using
a socket and a joint i can think of many cases where it come in handy

Thank you guys for the kind words.

Well....Bill we went to the Countess boutique
the other day. It is situated in a "house" they built
for a widow countess to get rid of her from the nearby
castle. Just something "small" for her and her servants
and livestock and horses. Four houses in a square with
a portal  through to the inner yard. The owner allowed me to
drive in to the yard and take a picture

 where they sell hats, and other
accessories a countess needs. Like chandeliers

couches, ridingcrops :o, beds, pillows,some more
pillows, spurs, handbags furniture and such. My favourite shop beacuse
they got couches with a lot of pillows so i build myself a nest where i
hibernate while wife shop hats ;D and pillows ;D. And now and then have
to give my opinion about the collour on a pillow and if it match whatever,,
Eventhough i have told my interest in pillows equals my interest in saletax
on Dill

If we drive 190 k on the highway here for very long it becomes Her Majesty's Mercedes to be auctioned rather than mom's.

I can't imagine your gas is more expensive. We pay $2.30 a litre for premium, $2.37 for diesel now and that has supposedly gone up again today

That monkey drives better than people do around here!

Todays gasprice in my hometown is 2.20 US dollar per litre. The tax was lowered monday but prices went up today
its a price rollercoaster .  Were the photo is taken it is a region with a area of 55000 squarekilometres with 2 cops
and one cop car on duty after 4 o clock so the risque they have a speedtrap in the middle of the wilderness at
8 o clock is less than slim. Where do you live, Canada or Australia when you write Dollars and Her majesty`s ?

I needed a rest from cleaning up after my dad. So we went south to mother in law
 i lay here browsing the net and found this  thought it was hilirious.
Was going to drive the Galaxie down here but the fuelprices now are crazy.
after  Hitler2.0 attacked Ukraine
So i borrowed my mothers Mercedes 500SEC use half the fuel of the Galaxie
and it needs some exercise.
Brakes was dragging, idled at 1200 rpm was in kickdownmode all the time. Cant send mom to the store with a car that shift to
fourth gear at 110 mph
A few hours of troubleshooting and repair it was back to normal, Exercised the calipers,new pads,new switch for the kickdown
that was stuck in down position. lubed the auxilary airvalve and chucked up some graphite inpregnated nylon in the
lathe and made a bushing for the throtle linkage. Still to high idle when its warm probaly have to buy new valve
But of we went ,first to wifes hometown.....

in to the sunset

Next day we drowe ower the mountains

Better weather on the otherside of the mountains (and a 911 Porsche we soon passed ;))

And down south it is summer
