    Re: Muscle Trucks?

    Garlits was running a clutch, not an automatic trans. We expect clutches to explode, they've been doing it for decades.

    Thank for the link BBR, sounds pretty much like what I thought.

        True. I was just thinking of a very famous example of a tranny going to pieces with bad results.

          Here's my Muscle truck, All I can say is the MO ST HWY patrol doesn't have a Vic that can stay with it.
