    I am building a Pro Stock 72 Mav for the street. It is a low mile car, in very nice shape, very straight, with little rust. The shock towers have been cut and moved out 2 inches per side so a bored and stroked 427 SOHC will fit in it. I am putting a 351 Clevor in it while my buddy and I put together a 390 heavy duty truck block with a Scat stroker kit to make 440 cubes and around 500 horse, then I will start rounding up the rest of the Cammer parts I need. I have a top loader 4 speed, Lincoln Versailles disk break 9 inch with a Strange N carrier, 35 spline Moser axles,and a 35 spline detroit locker that did one race in a Nextel cup car. This is my first build and I am having a blast! My buddy owns the Mr Rollbar car that Darrel Drokes raced back in the day. A SOHC powered monster! plus a 70 MAV that will shotly get a 427 Tunnel port poked out to 488!

    We are forbidden by the moderator from speaking of it on this board outside of the MCG club section of the forum, and only a couple people have been given permission to start posts in that forum.

    Please email me at j.grice@mchsi.com and I can fill you in on details and who is coming.
