    Ya know, I think I'm going to make my 55 a 4 wheel drive monster car. It's a 70's thing, like carburetors. Actually the way they drive them things, a carb would be spilling it's guts. Forget the 4 wheel idea, gotta keep the Quadrajet.

    People can laugh all they want about q-jets and the 70s, but I raced with a guy in the late 70s and his 67 SS350 with a q-jet left the line standing on the bumper pulling the wheels in all 4 gears to the tune of 6.90 in the 1/8. speaking of the 70s I drove my 55 over to parents house to mow yesterday and the 30 something neighbor asked me what king of chain that was hanging from my rear view. I replied pull tabs from beer cans, he had never heard of such a thing.

    People that call them "quadra-bogs" and other names either don't know their butt from a hole in the ground, or are repeating what other idiots said about them. I learned by trial and error till it ran good. Then I bought an A/F gauge and made some changes. Then I bought a book on them when I upgraded to an 800cfm from the smog years. Needed help with the idle circuit which requires modifications, not just settings. I really don't know why people have such a hard time with them?
    As for the pull tabs, just a couple days ago I mentioned something to my girlfriend about "can openers" for soda cans back before the pull tabs were introduced.

    Tony a friend of mine has a 428 CJ Mustang and its best pass ever on a single 4 was with a borrowed race prepped q-jet. Ford actually used them OEM on 429 CJ Torino's in 1970.
