      • thats flying,! thanks for the update. Way back when I was going to university, one of my classmates had a 68 chevelle 4 door car set up for dragracing that was running a 250 six. I think it ran high 14's, which at the time we thought was flying for an inliner. On the back of the trunklid was painted "you've been 8 by a 6" which was supposed to be a message to any competitor that he beat to the finish line. Always thought that was cool. At that time my brother and I were drag racing a Datsun 521 pickup with a transplanted Buick v-6, but since the truck could not break into the 15's we always declined to race that Chevelle. cheers, junior

        • The Lark is in the April issue of Grassroots Motorsports on Page 58.

          Also, on a side note, our Fairmont is a 12 page feature in the March issue of RPM Magazine.

          • I just realized we bought the Lark 10 years ago this week and this silly thread is 10 years old.

            In 10 years the car received the first engine my son assembled, he ran his first 13 and first 11 second passes in the car. It has had 5 engines including 3 SBCs, a 6L LS and a turbo charged Vortec 4200 6 cylinder. It is currently the fastest/quickest stock bottom end 4200. First (and only) ever SBE 10 second 4200. It was “checked out” by Big Daddy himself. It has been in 2 accidents (none were my sons fault), repaired and returned to the street. And it has been in 7 magazines and in one on line article (Bangshift). It’s been to Florida twice made 37 Dyno pulls, been raced countless runs, been the test bed for 2 different ECUs being developed by 2 different companies and has gone to the Nats East street rod show 8 times. ....Kinda cool!!!

            • Just an update...my son who is now 27 (started this project at 16) is about to change "Project Y" again. After multiple engines, swaps, transmission swaps, hundreds of passes... its going to get a frame off, 8.50 cert cage, and a Supercharged L83.

              • 10 years...no kidding, man that time flew! 8.50 cage...you guys are serious now. I have loved this build since day one. Kudos to you guys. Kinda of sad to see the Altas go as that is such a cool motor...but a direct injected and supercharged 5.3 sounds like a whole lot of fun too. Keep us posted! Cheers, junior
