choppajohn thrashed the cam and rearend in his el camino this past halloween at an epic party down in houston. so he gave me the remains and i made him a nice little keepsake for christmas. i wasnt at the party, but ive heard that seasoned hot rod guys told him it was the best burnout they've ever seen. about 100 feet down the parkin lot and back and parkin it in between two other cars in reverese and never lost smoke. hes pretty sure that the slammin it into reverse did the trick. the lobe in question is almost round and the lifter is dished in a good 1/8" or so. this will be a constant reminder. and whatever the lifter is made out of, it does not like to be welded.
