Re: I don't get it...

No worries folks we won't be deleting any accounts. They don't add any significant cost to the site and many times people do come back after an absence. Ironically the better the forums get, the more information they contain, the less people need to post to ask a question. They have the answer in a ...

The first two Boos 9 Cougars were slow. They were taken almost immediately to the drag strip and they were no faster than the 428CJ. Following the test two drivers put over 500 'break-in" miles on the Cougars to see if they would run better. They did not. At that point it probably appeared worthless...

Re: Boss 429 Cougars - Production Vehicle, or not?

Actually, we do know most of this story. Here is what we know for certain. On March 14th, 1969 an internal memo was written by M. S.

Re: Vacuum motor repair options?

Maybe we are talking about different things... When you pay for a tool, you own it. No one can use that tool without your permission. In some cases you pull the tool (take it back into your possession) when you are not running it. Some factories require you to do so due to liability. In the case of ...

That's already been tooled up, all you need is the manufacturer. I'm sure someone knows who it is.

Re: Vacuum motor repair options?
