From Dave :

           Greetings from the wild west coast. I'm 440Dave, so called because when I feel the real need for speed, my 1971 440 Cuda fills it at 11.86 at 121 mph. Angie is "crashtopass66" on Thundervalleyracing.com.  

           Our stable is rather eclectic and includes three Chevy trucks, one 1991 Corvette Convertible, two Buick Skylarks -- a 1970 hardtop and a 1971 convertible; a 1969 Ford F250; three demo cars; the previously mentioned 1971 Cuda street car; an unfinished 1970 Cuda S/G drag car; and my personal fave - our 1960 Pontiac Ventura 2 door bubbletop, sporting flames and wide whites.

           Our Chevy trucks are a 1972 parts truck, my 1971 Cheyenne Longhorn tow vehicle and daily driver, and my current resto project -- our 1961 Longbed Fleetside Apache.

           The '71 I've had for about nine years and it's currently for sale. I has been a great truck (the Ford tows better, sorry -- although the Chevy will kick the Ford's butt in a drag race). It's done Yeoman duty as daily driver, parts chaser, construction hauler, and race car tow vehicle. It has a GMC front. It was in a fender bender, cost me the grille and one fender. A local guy offered me a rust-free GMC front for 100 bucks. I just had to climb down a blackberry covered and wasp-nest infested mountainside to get it. Probably 500 bucks worth of labour, ha!

           Here are some more pictures on our photo-share site.

Thanks,

Dave and Angie
