NMC Legal for NMCA Racing
I built this car for my daughter to race in the Nostalgia Muscle Car class of NMCA, but her job and later a marriage didn't leave her any time to race. It has maybe 20 passes on it since completed.
It is a very solid and safe race car that goes as straight as a string. It was way over built to be low maintenance and run in the 12.0 index of NMC. I offer it for a quick sale of $10,000. I have over $20,000 and 600 hours in it. It is ready to race and win right now — and needs nothing.
ABOVE VIDEO: The car had a 408 put in it for one event — where it ran high 10s. This first pass was 11.1. I have a newly built pump gas 408ci Street/Strip motor for sale — and can put it in the car if you're looking to go mid/high 10s. Engine is $7500 upgrade. It is new and Diamondback Engines was selling them for $8995.
408 Aluminum Magnum Head motor above or 408 Aluminum Performer Head below. $7500 upgrade installed — either for the same price. I keep the 360.

The chassis is properly set up with a Mopar Performance proven recipe using SS Springs and off-set shackles. The car hooks very well. The engine is a mild Mopar Performance recipe 360, which we ran with a mixture of 1/3 Sunoco blue and 2/3 octane — or straight 104 octane. A-Body 8 3/4" with Moser spool and alloy axles, and 4.10 Richmond race gears. New slicks with 2 passes on them. Manual reverse valve body 727, PTC 9" convertor, and CSR carbon fiber trans-shield.
Full complement of Autometer gauges, including fuel pressure. Cheatah shifter with line lock. Wilwood style aluminum master cylinder. Header evacs. The K-frame, trunk pan, and both sides of the floor boards were stripped and painted with POR15. The underside of the car was cleaned every couple of races. Braided steel fuel lines from cell to the engine compartment.
Only time slip I can find — but its gone faster. With a 408 for a weekend, it did a 10.6 with a 1.48 60'
clean, and rust-free underside that has been painted in POR15 for easy cleaning. Note sub-frame connectors, driveshaft loop, deep transmission pan, …
Cleaned to bare metal before paint
Engine compartment cleaned, primed, and painted. K-Frame painted in POR15.
Old Interior removed, floors taken to bare metal and POR15
Shifter recently changed to Cheatah
Driver's seat adjustable for drivers 6' 4" to 5' 4".
It would take at least $20,000 and 600 hours to get a rust-free car, cage it, sub-frame connect it, scrape and POR15 it, set up the chassis, put in a long lasting and dependable drivetrain, use all of the quality electrical/ignition parts, wheels and tires, spool/axel/race gears/springs, and paint it to look and perform as well as this car — or you can plop down $10Grand and race tonight. My sacrifice is your bonus if you're the one to jump on this car.
National Lampoon’s OC & Stiggs
I was a subscriber of National Lampoon back in the 70s and 8os. When the October 1982 issue arrived, it contained first person account of fictional characters OC and Stiggs — titled “The Utterly Monstrous Mind-Roasting Summer of O.C. and Stiggs”.
When I read this story I knew that someone had written the story of my friends and I in the year 1972, just prior to my enlisting and reporting to basic training. I had dropped out of school the year before — and lived a life that mirrors OC and Stiggs so closely that someone I know must have submitted the idea. Then again, Al Gore thought “Love Story” was written about his life prior to Inventing the Internet.
Anyway, if you want to read the funniest story ever published in National Lampoon, almost 30 years after it first appeared — then click here.
If you saw the movie — forget everything you saw in it. It sucked and the story is far funnier.

My Last Three Indians For Sale
At one time I had a museum and around 25 Indians from 1913 too 1951 in my collection.
A few years ago, I sold off the collection of Indians — except for my favorite three. I'm now downsizing my life — and as much as I love these bikes — I need to sell them and move on. The following are for sale.
50 Chief Kustom
May be the fastest and most beautiful Indian Chief ever made.
Rare and highly desirable hydraulic fork used in the low production final years of the Indian Chief.
Very Expensive multi-colored metallic candied paint in "Rainbow Theme". Kustom Chief graphic with head dress of flames.
Engine is stroked and uses the top shelf parts from JE, Carilla, Shunk, … making it one of the fastest hand-shifted (crotch shifter) bikes ever. 400+ miles on engine. Engine built by Terry Krumm of Krumm Indian. The bike was restored by Terry and Adrian Krumm of Krumm's Indian. One of a kind hand made dual fishtails on a one of a kind show bike.
The bike was driven for one season and then drained of its fluids and used as a museum piece. I paid close to $50,000 to build and it would most likely cost considerably more now. It ran great when last ridden prior to being prepared for storage. It most likely will need a new battery and the carb rebuilt — as neither store well. Any respectable motorcycle mechanic should be able to quickly ready for the road.
I'll take the first $45,000 waved in front of my face. Excellent Investment in an era where cash,, real estate, stocks, and bonds are losing value — and Gold has topped out.
Come take a look at the bike (in Houston, Texas area) and I'm sure you'll jump all over it.
51 Rainbow Chief
Rare Rainbow Chief restored and painted by Bob Stark of Starklite.
Those of you who know Indian History, know that Bob's father owned a Indian Dealership back in the 30s-40s-50s. At the dealership in the 40s, they came up with a unique paint scheme called the Rainbow as a way to sell more bikes. It became so popular — that they worked with the factory to produce these schemes. Most were shades of reds and yellows — but a few Rainbows were done in blue or black schemes.
Bob Stark built and painted this bike for me in the late 90s. It is a fully loaded bike with a lot of very rare Indian Accessories and parts on it. I rode it for one season, putting 400+ miles on it — and then removed the battery and drained the fluids to display in a museum. The museum is now closed — and I'm selling this rare piece of history.
$35,000 is a very firm price – as-is, where-is. While the bike was running at the time it was prepared for storage — you can expect to need to replace the battery and most likely need to rebuild the carb and tune up. Most reputable motorcycle mechanics should have no problem — or you could have the bike shipped to Starklite for them to go through.
I can arrange delivery to anywhere in the world at Buyer's cost. Click here for more info and photos on the 51 Chief
41 Indian Four
This very rare motorcycle was the Duesenbergs of motorcycles. Professionally restored By Krumms Indian, ridden 30 miles to ensure all was well, and then all fluid drained and the bike displayed as a museum piece.
Once certified have been received — I'll help arrange shipping to anywhere in the world — at Buyer's cost. Don't bother with the scams — as they go no where until money is certified — and you pay the shipper directly.

Are you a Texan who feels like America has left us behind and is forcing a culture on us that we don’t want? Do you feel like we’re past the point of no return?
From bumper stickers and coffee mugs, shirts and sweat shirts, yard signs and banners, and many little stocking stuffing trinkets like drink coasters and fridge magnets.

Sell Your Old Books on Dave's List – Free!
With the economy the way it is, I'm trying to live smarter financially. I'm downsizing my life by getting rid of all stuff I don't really need, and really don't appreciate. This will reduce my expenses, have my life less cluttered, put a little money in my pocket, and better appreciate what I keep.
We've recently moved from a big home we had lived in for 15 years, and a lake house we had for 11 years — into a single and much smaller home. After filling six bookcases, I still had 20 boxes of books that I have no room for.
So in the era of reducing clutter and downsizing my life — I've put together a used book selling section of Dave's List, which is what I jokingly refer to the Old Hippie dot com's Free Classified Ad web site. Registered and logged in members of www.OldHippie.com can place free classified ads, with a "Buy it Now" linked to their PayPal, which has the buyer pay for the item and the shipping by credit card or their PayPal account.
Over the next couple of weeks, I will have my administrative assistant (Manda) start adding the 300+ books I'm selling. However, I invite, no I challenge, others to downsize their lives by cleaning out their garages, attics, sheds, and anywhere else they have stuff that they know in their heart of hearts they don't need. Pack Rats and Hoarders — here is a chance for you to give yourself and your family breathing room, put some cash in your pockets, and get what you don't need to someone who does need it.
Get a roll of masking tape and walk around your house and put a piece of tape and a price of everything that is really useless to you. Keep the stuff that has sentimental value — but limit the number of things with sentimental value — so you better appreciate them. Then come back around with a digital camera ($50 at Wal-Mart) and photo the items — as ads with photos sell quicker. Then turn your useless stuff into cash.
As the classified ad site gets bigger — I will pay for advertising to bring more people to buy the stuff being sold. Until them, please share this on Facebook and tell your friends of the Free Classified Ads site — and the bigger it gets — the better it is for buyers and sellers.
