Baketech and the bitch

Just saw the pics of your Camaro. Do you still own it? Just had to say you rarely see people do it right. That rear suspension set up is sweet. Not a Chevy guy but that car could change my mind.

I came here to chew bubble gum and to kick some ass...and I'm all out of bubble gum.

Re: Baketech and the bitch

Unfortunately no....but the current owner still races and shows it....along with driving it to summer cruising events...

I miss the old bitch, but I think I had more fun building it than driving/racing it....a bit more info in this THREAD

That rear setup was a 9" Ford on a fully adjustable 4-Link with coilovers...urethane bushings instead of rod end bearings...gave just enough cushion to make it hook up on the street and be comfy cruising...

That's a shame but you're right it is more enjoyable building them IMO.
My dream is to set up a 68 Dart the same way. Tubbed out, Dana rear, 440, 4spd, etc. set up with stock rims(the rear deeper of course) the classic sleeper. Had a 70 383 Cuda and a 72 400ci 4sp(pistol grip) Road Chicken but my favorite Mopar was the Hemi-Dart. Stock 10 sec. car (uncorked with slicks) and it looked like granny drove up in it(almost). One of these days...

Cool story BTW.

I'm not a huge Mopar fan, but there are certain cars that stoke my fires. For me it would be the Barracuda....I also have a soft spot for the Super Bee, because a buddy had a sweet purple convertible with the 440 Six Pack and pistol grip....what a phocking ride....and a total chick magnet at the time...
