Did a little sound check from my project Valiant 8) It still has souped 225 with open headers under hood. Didn´t have any brakes yet, but if was fun to drive around garage :D

Took two crappy quality, big size and short videos with my digital camera:
1 and 2

and little better pics:

You guys from Northern Europe build the best Po-Beater cars! I think our Valaint would fit nicely with the theme.

Much like northern Europeans, Northern Canadians grow cocaine for export. It makes a nice road surface so we sprinkle it everywhere to keep down the dust. Sometimes we use flat pieces of wood to slide on it,.,,

Actually we have this thing called winter. It snows and is cold, ~7F degree at the moment. And I kind of like it 8)

More pics with this white stuff.

I´m driving my Sport Satellite right now, because I´m modding my daily driver. Not slant, 318 4barrel wiht some cam and headers. Really nice winter car :lol:

Thanks :) It has bigger tires, racing steering wheel and seat. :lol: Very good for snow work and towing old junk :wink:

Valiant is much better than it seems to be. It has sat under tree for 10 years. It needed only couple of patches to floor and one at the front framerail under torsionbar. Also connected subframes at the same time.
This has even rock solid front fenders 8). It is very rare for Finnish Valiant. I bought it partly because of this. I need fenders for my other Valiant, but I don´t have heart to tear this for parts. It´s in much better shape that any of my other Valiants I or my friends have owned.
I´ll have to make a new intercooler for my daily driver Audi. After that I can start the project Valiant again.

I haven´t seen The Punisher yet. I´ll have to find it. There is a ´69 Road Runner in it?

This one needs some paint job too... I have too many cars to play with :( :roll:

Yes, I believe it is a Sattelite dressed as a Runner. The car was on E-Bag a couple weeks ago.

Sold the 225 to my friends ´68 Valiant. Now there is stock 170 under hood. Soon it will get EFI and after that a Schwitzer S2BG.

But first it needs brakes. Hmm, which one to use :roll: Maybe I´ll use the middle one :) New 11,75 rotors. I don´t have any calibers yet, haven´t found caliber brackets for big rotors. Maybe i´ll find something not stock, don´t know what. Any suggestions? Also made new end links for sway bar.

Finally some progress with turbo&efi conversion. Got almost all materials last week and made a header for turbo. After the header is finished, I´ll make a stainless steel plenum. I´m going to use a Mercedes 300 throttle body and DTA ecu.
