Howdy Monza,

Thanks for the link and for the heads-up on this build. I watched the entire video and enjoyed the easy "death" humor that came along with the ride.

I remember the segment years ago that was on HorsePower TV, the show thread that Marty and John were involved in. I also recall the shenanigans of the show's producers forcing parts changes on the MTS engine just to satisfy the HorsePower advertisers. Later Marty and John showed the ACTUAL horsepower/torque numbers using THEIR carb and compared the increased power to what the advertiser parts yielded.

I watch most of the Motor Trend car programs but don't remember seeing Detroit Muscle on the play list. What station/channel does that show call home?

Best,

bro. d

Your Welcome D,

It lists it on NBCSN, Paramount, History or TNN. ( Satellite or Cable)

Part of the Sunday "PowerNation " 4 show lineup every week.

It just showed up on my YouTube Favorites yesterday.

I swear these guys must all go to some kind of 'car show host' classes so they talk the same. Literally everybody sounds like Stacey David!

I'm excited to see this build!

They are from Tennessee and their shop is there too.....pretty much all those shows use locals if they can..... Sounds like a Deliverance rerun.....

At 6300 lbs, that hearse is a lot lighter than I thought it would be.

Too bad they are testing it on the 1/8 mile and not the 1/4 mile.

Maybe that would get my lazy ass up to my shop and actually work on my car instead of working at my job so damned much.

It's lighter because it's a combo. An actual '76 would be more like 7 to 8.

That stuff has been stupid priced for a couple of years. I don’t think it is indicative of any kind of real value. I have two more 500s so thankfully I’m not in the market. I will say that I noticed Edelbrock inventories dry up after the Holdener’s fiasco. Jegs and Summit ran low and eBay went from having many auctions to only a couple.

Great rear axle choice. Shame on the yard guy for cutting the emergency brake cables. That money could be spent on....

Plenty of room in the back to carry two different spare tires for the different wheel bolt circles. Unless they take time to fix that issue. This begs the question of what wheels they will use, and what the final appearance will look like.

Why not a 9"? Just curlious.

I wouldn't expect a 9" to be very plentiful in wrecking yards anymore. That thing they got is a beast and should do well under a hearse. They are probably going to have to move a lot of brackets or start from scratch.

I would have stuck a 14-bolt full floater under it and started plotting how to convert the front to 8-lug. :sneaky:
