Need Input: With or Without Build Tag

Ok, I was thinking of leaving my build take off the new valve covers, but I just set it on there and I am thinking I may put it back on after all.

What are y'alls thoughts?

Re: Need Input: With or Without Build Tag

I've gone both ways on this as well...mine doesn't have them on there though. Looks cleaner to me...it's definitely not the engine they build anymore Rob...

Leave it off, we know you'll need those few ounces of weight savings if you wanna stand a chance.

Nah, I already took off the 10 lb weight hanging off the diff...so we should be good now. lol

My only hope is that I can in fact get to NY this year and that the weather is good on a wednesday night so we can do this at the track. Oh, and that I Can get a real tune by then...we shall see. My tuner doesn't seem to want to reply to my email about a tune...

Re: Need Input: With or Without Build Tag

you could have a custom one made maybe in a black chrome look to match your theme

you could also modify the builder data and put two different builders if you wished like "GOD" and "Moses" or something.

I should be finished by then too. All depends how fast funds dry up though.

Re: Need Input: With or Without Build Tag

That's where I was thinking...they have that braket racing/test in tune on wednesday nights...my old stomping grounds anyhow. Plus, there's another guy in Street Machines that talks a lot of trash about my car and I would like to take a shot at his olds cutlass as well.

And yeah, I'm in the same funds boat right now. I'll get it all done, but, will I have enough left to go to NY...that's the question. lol

Got a link to this other Olds? I don't think I know any olds guys out here in WNY really.

Re: Need Input: With or Without Build Tag

Wow, yeah, there is one olds guy in rochester known as dr olds...he has 5 or 6 complete frame off multiple show winners. He's a member of street machines as well.

Here are his that I have pics of, I believe he just finished a new one last year that I don't have pics of (yes, he owns all of these):

Also, go here and you can read about all of his olds Member Profiles --- His name is S(teve) Bicker

67 442


67 442 (yes, he has 2, one white and one yellow)


68 442


70 442


73 442


Unknown year cutlass



The guy with the cutlass doesn't have a pic out there...but it is nothing fancy. It is just a cutlass that's been gutted and made into a race car. When I was there in NY it was a low 11 second car....and we have a decent rivalry going...so it would be fun to bust his *** like I did my other buddy in his 93 z28...with my 2000 GT.

Oh yeah, here's the rest of the club members. There are some other mopar's out there as well. Our Member's Rides

Is that the Steve that I remember for those 2 years? haha

And definitely leave 'em on. Let me know about shipping the off-road x when you have time. I have a few other mods to talk to you about too.

Re: Need Input: With or Without Build Tag

Yeah, I glued it on last night. the Fore Covers are just slightly bigger than the stockers so it comes right up to the edge of the build tag, but I think it looks real good on there.

Re: Need Input: With or Without Build Tag

I've heard of the Steve guy.

What is the other guy running in the Gutted Cutlass? Is it a Chevy 350, or actually an olds block?

His name is Dave Green...that I'm talking about.

One guy that has a bad *** cutlass is Dave Laurer. He's running NMRA now with a big block fox...He was running 8's in his 70 something olds.
