Boyfriends new car. :)
« on: March 04, 2010, 09:25:15 AM »

I just found this film, made by his old owner, on my boyfriends youtube. :D 
He already has a 1969 Roadrunner, but that's on sale now.
(He changes cars almost as fast as his underwear).
A few weeks ago he bought this 1964 Dodge 440 with a (Sjak or Herman, please correct me if I am wrong) 360 engine, that's been drilled up (or how do you say it in Englisch?) to a 390.
He is now on his way to The Netherlands on a boat. :)
I cannot wait to drive this baby. :D

It's OK, we got it
 
Drilled=Bored
The engine has been stroked.
 
There is allot to be said about these Mopar small blocks.  Everyone steps away from them, but they are still more durable than a big block.  Look at the 318 as an example.
 
I have a funny question for you though. . .  How do you know how often he changes his underwear?    
 
Thank you for sharing that

I have to wash it...... :) He does change it every day. (Thank god)
But since we've been together he bought and sold almost 20 cars... and that in 2 years.
At first I thought the Roadrunner was a keeper. At that time it was his dreamcar. (One year ago) He has a 440 with 4 speed and sixpack. But then he found this one on the internet.... It wasn't love at first sight for me, but now I can not wait till it arrives. With a little luck he is here by the end of the month. :D

Oke so drilled is bored. Thanks. :)

No, I'd say Sweden has the largest - they have the biggest chapter - by
far - of the WPC Club out side of the US, if that's any indication. And
both my 58 Desoto and 58 NYer vert are now in Sweden. The Vasteras meet
and the Big Power Meet, both in Sweden, regularly have the biggest
turnout of vintage 50s to 70s Mopars in all of Europe. The
Netherlanders
are probably a close 2nd, however, as far as Mopar love goes... and the
other Scandinavian countries, Germany, France, England  and Itay
are well represented as well...good taste in cars appears to be pretty
universal in Europe!

Polaraco...Me is sorry to. Pffff I almost uploaded a film about our laundry basket.... ;D

Commando1, everybody who loves Mopar is welcome over here, you only have to able to cope with our fighting over cars.

Stitcherbob...That is exatly what he loves. When he sells the Roadrunner I think he is putting another engine in the 440. I almost now for sure. Mmm I know for sure.... :)

And about the good taste. In Sweden they have the best taste of cars in my opinion. I can be wrong but I got the feeling that people overhere are more "muscle" car minded. I don't know who I can translate this.... I try. Last year we went to a Moparmeeting. There were a few (about 10) fifties Mopars. The rest of them (a lot) were Chargers, Challengers, Coronet, Roadrunner..... I love a great looking Charger and the sound of big block, but when I see 10 Chargers lined up, and the only difference is their color..... :(  Ow I was so glad that there was a cocktailbar. And that Sjak was our chauffeur. :D

I agree
I have never really liked the other bodies.  I've owned a few, but most were short term. 
 
You must stand out with that 53 Plyme.

So, Bingel... why would you go about and film your laundry basket anyway... ;o)

Polarco, 318's last a very long time simply because they don't perform or make any substancial power!

" If the engine is very mildly built, and never sees high RPM
(over, say, 6,500) it should be OK. Otherwise, it's well known that stock
smallblocks split open the cylinder walls at about 550 HP"
