Bought a New DD and project car today

Well, I bought a new project and DD car today.

1981 Fox that Mikey-poo was going to build into a race car. It's going to cost me $25 out of pocket and I need to pick it up. Shouldn't be a problem as he lives like 3 miles from me.

I am going to get it running and in shape enough to be my DD so I can park the cobra...probably cover it in primer for the time being....and work on it as I go. Should get some decent mileage compared to the cobra once it is running too. lol

Here are some pics...it should take me about a month or so to get it up to code to get it registered...

Pics:

'81, is that FI-ed yet or still carbed?

I say you sand it down and do a Line-X paint job...

Re: Bought a New DD and project car today

It is still carbed.

And, that is basically what I am thinking...only instead of line x...going primer for the power to weight ratio advantage over actual paint...specially with only 88 block HP.... lol

Problem there is...there are no seats in the car right now. lol

When we first got it to his house...we gutted the interior completely. No seats, no seat belts, no dash cover...still has a dash because there are 1 or 2 more screws we couldn't find to get it out of there...and no interior panels....no carpet. nothing. It was gutted.

However, I will have to come up with something like that though...because that is a nice idea. Maybe a wad of cash stuffed in the heat vents or something.

Re: Bought a New DD and project car today

So....here's a question for everyone...do I go big block with this car or stay 302 based?

I had a meeting from 8 am this morning till noon....and had nothing to do but brainstorm about the car. Something kept coming up in my mind....460 big block....427 minimum...but 460 really stuck out.

I'm thinking 460 BB with a barely idling cam...and keep it N/A and try to get to the 400 RWHP mark.

Or should I go 302 based small block? or maybe 351 based? Thoughts?

By the time I get around to putting in a new motor...it will no longer by the DD. The DD aspect is only for the time being while I work up the funds to start fixing everything and upgrading stuff.

That was where my mind was as well. A cam that can barely stay running and some juice for the track. It is going to have a 6 or 8 point cage in it, front seats only, and pretty much no interior...just enough to cover some of the sheet metal.

What happened to wanting 700+ out of the Cobra? Is that dead in the water or do you want a 700+ HP collector car and a 400+ N/A "race" car?

700 hp cobra is still the priority...

400+ hp fox is the project....

I'm building a todo list and a plan of attack on the fox....deciding where I Want to go with it and how I will get there...all the while using it as a daily driver in its current hillbilly form.

This way, with it as the DD, I will have the ability to do a few of the things I want to the cobra like the short block swap, blower swap, and tranny build up without having to worry about it being down for more than a weekend since it is my only mode of transport right now.

So...to answer your question, the initial money will go to the 81 just to it running and on the road so that I can then throw the chunks of change at the cobra and get it where I want it. The cobra will end up pushing the 700 rwhp barrier...if not breaking it. Then, the fox will start being built.

Besides, there is a good bit of body work and such that needs to be done on the 81...so, I've got a good bit of time before I get to building it up at all.

why do you want a fast/slower car than your main car?

Because, the cobra will not be the primary car. When the fox is done, it will not be my primary car. By the time I Finish both, I will have some econobox as my DD.

However, since I would have a real strong cobra, there is no sense in making the 81 over 500 rwhp. Not to mention the fact the 400+, depending on how far over 400, fox will probably be about as fast as the 700 hp cobra due to weight.

Even so, the idea of a big block with a big cam just makes it all that much sweeter. If I want the fox to go real fast, I could always add nitrous...but would still have that killer sound.

Then, I will move on to an older mustang with a 302 or 351 based motor...and so on and so forth until I have the collection I want.

However, the 03 will be the late model show car/street beast. The 81 will be the classic show car and/or track fun toy.

Re: Bought a New DD and project car today

"Fast" cars can do something called "turning" too, ya know, Rob?

All this super-duper HP with big cams, nitrous, etc. is only good for going straight...Why not make something that handles and not just something with big hp numbers? There are more types of racing than just 1/8th and 1/4th miles....

All this super-duper HP with big cams, nitrous, etc. is only good for going straight...Why not make something that handles and not just something with big hp numbers? There are more types of racing than just 1/8th and 1/4th miles....
Because, honestly, I don't really ever go to the track...1/8, 1/4, or otherwise.

However, I have been enjoying some spirited cornering in the cobra lately...so...in reality it can be my corner carver. Since I really haven't done suspension with it yet, I still have the chance to set it up that way...and have the high HP to go with it.

But in the end, either way, I don't really race all that often...if anything it is on the empty stretches of road...only in mexico of course ...and I'm really just trying to satisfy my vehicular desires.
