    Hi there. I'm BC_Buickguy and some know me as Ben. I've been around cars since I could walk.... heck of a long time ago, I'm 70 now... built them, raced them and crewed them.
    became Buick focused in the mid 70's and got a 75 Skyhawk which I still have and preparing to put a stage 2 v6 into it...the stage 1 got tired lol. I had a shop in the 80's distributing Kenne-Bell, Poston and others that made all the Buicks fast with class!

    I'm finding the forums very interesting and informative so thanks to all.

    Did you get to drive it on dates ? Marie and I went on dates riding mules or quarter horses in 1985.

    New guy from the Dallas, TX area.

    Have always been a Mopar guy since purchasing my first car in 1975 at the age of 14 with yard mowing money. It was a 48 Plymouth Business Coupe. Drove it through most of high school with the original flathead 6 then bought my grandfather's 68 Plymouth wagon for the 383/727 built it using the old Direct Connection catalog recipe for a 12 second B Body and shoehorned it into the 48.

    Eventually bought a 73 Cuda, pulled the 383/727 from the 48 and put it in the Cuda. Was pretty quick for a daily driven street car. After driving the Cuda for a few years I traded it for a 34 Plymouth coupe with a 318. Was in the middle of redoing the 34 when we started a family so cars went on the back burner for about 25 years.

    In about 2010 bought another 48 Plymouth and built a hot rod 230 flathead from a 57 Plymouth. Had a finned aluminum head, cast iron headers, Offenhauser dual intake with Carter/Webber 2bbl carbs and an HEI distributor from an S10. Added an overdrive transmission and drove it for about 8 years that way.

    Now I have a 37 Plymouth coupe in my avatar. Runs a 360 Magnum from a 95 Ram that has been converted to carb from the fuel injection and a 727.

    Never have been involved in racing due to financial reasons, but have always enjoyed going to the track. Started off young as my dad ran dirt Super Modifieds around SW Missouri, NW Arkansas back in the early 60s as well as a Willys Gasser. Guess that is what got me interested in cars. Mopars were probably because of my uncle who was about eight years older than me and lived next door. He had a 70 Roadrunner with a built 383 that I was always "helping" work on.

    Well now that you know my life's history guess I will shut up and take in what you all have to share.

    My current 37 Plymouth.
