nice.. Fabian.. there is a new fast and the furious movie in production. are you working it??
I seem to see so many of these builds based on who knows what, but for once I would like to see a "HONEST" street build. Take this "Blue Collar 454" and REALLY make it a "Blue Collar" build. Put some pump gas pistons in it, (maybe Speed Pro LS6 pistons w/ 30cc domes), use a cam that will work with a 2000 rpm converter then test it as it would really be something that the regular "Joe's" would be stuck with, (i.e., someone poor like me!), and then put some street legal drag tires on it and run it at the drags! I would be glad to wash the car, check tire pressure, run for soda's and whatever else you need from someone that would give you free labor to see this in print! Of course, I also have an 69 El Camino w/ a 454 and turbo 350, but I have to drive mine on the street, as it will be my only car. So, do we see something in the future or???? Well, I am still wishing!Thanks for listening!Raymond

wayne712222:nice.. Fabian.. there is a new fast and the furious movie in production. are you working it??Here is what happen on the set of Fast7TMZ.com'Fast & Furious 7'Racing Scene SCRAPPED We Can't Tolerate Another DeathA critical scene for the upcoming "Fast & Furious 7" came to a screeching halt Thursday ... after studio suits pulled the plug because it was just too dangerous ... too risky.Sources connected with the production tell TMZ ... the shoot was being prepped at the Willow Springs International Raceway near Palmdale -- 45 minutes from where Paul Walker tragically died.Members of the crew tell TMZ ... producers brought in drivers who are "authentic street racers" for the scene, where a souped-up yellow Chevelle races another car and dramatically pops a wheelie, as bystanders stand right by the track and cheer. A similar scene appeared in the first F&F.The scene was being prepped for several days. Vin Diesel and other stars were there. But just before filming, we're told the suits from Universal abruptly cancelled the shoot, saying it was too dangerous.Someone who was at the track tells TMZ ... a person from the production told some staffers they couldn't get the proper insurance to shoot the race.But the word circulating among the staff is that they are extremely cautious because of what happened to the star of their movie. They believe a second crash -- even though Paul's was not film-related -- could jeopardize the entire franchise.
