Hi you guys. I am just now getting into Gassers for real as an adult. I'm 61 years old but you wouldn't know it. Until now all I had were model cars of my favorite gassers even from when I was a kid.

You guys my age were lucky enough to be around to see these bad boys in there beginnings. I'm real glad to be here, and thank you.

Welcome to the forum Warlock! Glad you're getting started, regardless of what age you start at! I've enjoyed the gassers all my life, and think this car hobby is one of the best things anyone could do!

Thank you sir very much. I actually do have a 62 Nova Gasser but I am a little afraid some here will be put off by some one who bought their car ready built, rather than building my own. I found my car on craigslist, I just flipped out when I saw it, its all new but I cant take any credit for the build. I will however be making a lot of changes my self, I would prefer a 700 R-4 trans rather than the Turbo-350, and run an Edelbrock duel quad set up on my 383.
I want to run Cragar SS's all around. But all the hard to come by stuff is there already.

I wouldn't worry about that. We love all cars, built or bought. Besides we can corrupt you into building another or modifications to this one. However, I would say it looks pretty cool the way it is. Yah did good!

Thanks for the kind words. But I honestly feel that when you have built your own car from the ground up "after finding one" there is a source of pride involved buying one ready built doesn't give. And there is the bonus of knowing how it was put together when its time to fix it. I already have Monster transmission building me a super duty 700 R-4 with a 4th gear switchable lock up converter and B&M Street Bandit shifter.

And I love Cragar S/S wheels, so a deep set for the rear and narrow for the front running M/T Sportsman radials is on the way. The 383 stroker is fresh built making 505 HP @ 6.500 on the motor, with a 200 HP shot of nitrous that only the bottle portion is installed at the moment. I ordered a nice Edelbrock duel quad intake and twin 500 cfm Edlelbrock carbs that are the enduroshine version and look beautiful. Should make a difference down the track too! I m swapping the red Moroso valve covers with the pretty Edelbrock classic ribbed ones and matching ribbed Edelbrock air cleaner.

But for possibly having The Engine Factory build one of there gorgeous Dart 427's possibly, to replace the already mean 383 that will do me.
