This Week’s First Winner
I know what many of you are going to say, “He forgot his cam grind number.” While you’re right, this week’s first winner really deserves this cam not for himself, but for his students.
Most of us learned about cars from a friend, family member, or a shop class, and it’s no secret that the amount of high school-backed shop classes are on the decline. These are the future motorheads folks. With that being said, we would like to award our first cam to Oak Hills High School shop teacher Mike Stayton. Here’s his story’
I am Mike Stayton and I teach Automotive at Oak Hills High School in Hesperia Ca. I am writing this post on behalf of my students and myself. As you know there are not many high school automotive programs remaining. yep, we don’t get money for neet projects so we have to beg for help from good people like you. Last year I paid for a Lunati camshaft and the students installed it in my wifes car. Needless to say, they loved it. I would like to build a engine with my next years class and a Lunati cam would sure help. We will be building a 350 chevy engine and would like to install a roller cam and lifters. The engine will need to have a heavy lope. ( the kids love it ) I would let you decide the lift and duration to our project. We don’t care. The engine just needs to make the sound of a true muscle car. Turn some heads.
This Week’s Second Winner
Our second winner goes to ’66 Charger owner Terry Bass Jr. What we liked about Terry’s story is not the fact that it was a barn find that he’s restoring, or the fact that the original 361 ended up having a cracked block, but it’s the fact that Terry drags his beloved Charger around the country as he changes to different Army stations throughout his career. We all know how costly transporting a car can be, and it shows true dedication that Terry takes his car where he has to go. Here is his story:
I have a ’66 Charger, currently with a 361 BB. I have had this car since 2004 when I found it rotting in a barn on a farm in NW Oklahoma. The 361 I am currently running is the original engine, but unfortunately it is cracked externally. I have to replace it soon and can use all the help I can get building the 440 I have to put in it. This is the first Charger I have had for myself that I get to build. I joined the Army in 2009 and have brought the car to my first duty station with me.
Prior to enlisting in the Army I spent considerable amounts of time and money on the mechanics and upholstery of my car, with the exception of building a new engine. The time and funds for this project are now limited due to work, but I refuse to sell it. I will own this car forever so I want to build everything perfect on it. I grew up building these first generation Chargers with my father so there is a lot of sentimental value involved in mine.
Once I return from my upcoming deployment, the engine build is going to be my #1 priority. I have installed Lunati Bracket Master II cams in many, many Fords and Mopars that I have built in the past and would absolutley LOVE to have the VooDoo 60302 stick to install in my new 440. I love the choppy, old style idle these cams have and I think it would really make this Charger get the respect it deserves. I have all the confidence in the world in Lunati products!!!! They have never failed me and I doubt they ever will.
