Misc. Info


Websites that have interesting and useful information on various things.


Andy Dimperio sent me this email. This is a good source of information:
"I wanted to tell you about a good resource I found. There is a guy named Bob Walker who builds racing motors. He manufactures and sells parts for early Dodge, Chrysler and Desoto engines. He has headers, intake manifolds and heads for the 315 poly and hemi. He makes brackets so you can bolt on a newer style transmission, newer water pump or newer fuel pump. I found his site surfing the net. He is at www.hothemiheads.com He also seems like a really nice guy. I called him on the phone and also emailed with questions and he seems very nice and helpful."
