HOT ROD SHOP Neon

HOT ROD SHOP Neon

At Dooley and Sons, they let the quality of their custom hot rods do the talking. Founded in 1961 by Dooley Cameron in Levelland, Texas, they approach each day by striving to improve upon what was done the day before. Over five decades later, they are privileged to work with customers that share their vision for constantly pushing the envelope of custom hot rod design. From stock restorations to Pro Touring musclecars to custom street rods and trucks, they see each new project as an opportunity to incorporate new ideas and inspiration into the broad variety of custom hot rods that they build.
Although upholstery work has always been Dooley Cameron’s first passion, his knack for custom fabrication and show-quality bodywork enabled him to build turnkey hot rods in which to showcase his custom interiors. As the years went by, his sons Jeff and Tom started working at the shop after school, learning the tricks of the trade from their craftsman father. Jeff took a keen interest in paint and body work, while Tom gravitated toward sheetmetal fabrication. In 1983, Dooley’s Custom Upholstery became Dooley and Son’s Hot Rod Shop. The Cameron family left the dusty plains of West Texas behind and relocated to the piney woods of Magnolia, Texas in 2004.
Today, what started out as small one-man operation has grown far beyond what the Cameron family ever imagined. Stretched out over 15 acres, our 20,000 square-foot facility houses a custom sheetmetal fabrication, upholstery, chassis fabrication, paint and body, exhaust fabrication, and a final assembly departments all under one roof. This arrangement enables them to maintain stringent quality control standards by closely monitoring each car through every phase of the build. During the construction phase, project cars can easily move between each department to undergo minor design changes as necessary, resulting in a remarkably well-integrated package from top to bottom.

Buick GSX – 1970

Buick GSX - 1970

The 1970 Buick GSX marked a 6-year march to automotive legend.

Starting in 1965 Buick fitted the largest V8 parent company GM would allow it to fit in the Skylark intermediate, a 400 CID (6,555 cc). Incidentally, the engine was actually a 401 CID (6,570 cc), and was rated at 325 hp (242 kw) and 445 lb.ft (603 Nm). Known in 1965 as the Skylark Gran Sport.

Over the next 5 years engine capacity and power increased progressively, and in 1970 the Gran Sport 455 received a ‘Stage 1’ 455 CID (7.4 litres) V8 of 360 hp and 510 lb.ft (691 Nm). These Gran Sport 455 Stage 1 cars were tested at the time, and in future years showing 360 hp SAE Net (this is the engine ‘as installed’ and with all power consuming systems in place, rather than the SAE gross which excluded these itesm, and had been the method for stating power output on all American cars prior to 1972). The 360 hp SAE Net corresponded closely to the figure that was tested on a dynomometer for a 455 CID ‘Stage 1’ at 471 SAE gross.

A rare ‘Stage 2’ part set was also available, not much of which is known. A total of 75 ‘Stage 2’ kits were created spread over the 1970 – 1972 model years.

The GSX of 1970 was a halo car top sit over atop the Gran Sport sub series. The GSX found 678 homes. A total of 278 GSXs were fitted with the standard 455 CID V8, the remaining 400 were equipped as ‘Stage 1′ cars. The GSX was a statement, the way the W30 4-4-2s of stablemate Oldsmobile were used as an ultimate expression of intermediate V8 fire-power. The car was available in two colours only for 1970 – white and yellow. All cars featured front and rear spoilers, and a large section of the bonnet (hood) was painted black.

The 1970 Buick GSX shown here has been recreated in Lego miniland scale for Flickr LUGNuts’ 83rd build challenge, – ‘Only in America’, – specifically featuring cars built in the USA. The late 1960’s muscle car era typified the US at the time, and mark vehicles from this period distinctively as American.

Aérospatiale-BAC Concorde (1969)

Aérospatiale-BAC Concorde (1969)

Aérospatiale-BAC Concorde /ˈkɒŋkɔrd/ is a retired turbojet-powered supersonic passenger airliner or supersonic transport (SST). It is one of only two SSTs to have entered commercial service; the other was the Tupolev Tu-144. Concorde was jointly developed and produced by Aérospatiale and the British Aircraft Corporation (BAC) under an Anglo-French treaty. First flown in 1969, Concorde entered service in 1976 and continued commercial flights for 27 years.

Among other destinations, Concorde flew regular transatlantic flights from London Heathrow and Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport to New York JFK, Washington Dulles and Barbados; it flew these routes in less than half the time of other airliners. With only 20 aircraft built, the development of Concorde was a substantial economic loss; Air France and British Airways also received considerable government subsidies to purchase them. Concorde was retired in 2003 due to a general downturn in the aviation industry after the type’s only crash in 2000, the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001, and a decision by Airbus, the successor firm of Aérospatiale and BAC, to discontinue maintenance support.

A total of 20 aircraft were built in France and the United Kingdom; six of these were prototypes and development aircraft. Seven each were delivered to Air France and British Airways. Concorde’s name reflects the development agreement between the United Kingdom and France. In the UK, any or all of the type—unusually for an aircraft—are known simply as "Concorde", without an article. The aircraft is regarded by many people as an aviation icon and an engineering marvel.

Early studies

Concorde

The origins of the Concorde project date to the early 1950s, when Arnold Hall, director of the Royal Aircraft Establishment (RAE) asked Morien Morgan to form a committee to study the SST concept. The group met for the first time in February 1954 and delivered their first report in April 1955.

At the time it was known that the drag at supersonic speeds was strongly related to the span of the wing. This led to the use of very short-span, very thin rectangular wings like those seen on the control surfaces of many missiles, or in aircraft like the Lockheed F-104 Starfighter or the Avro 730 that the team studied. The team outlined a baseline configuration that looked like an enlarged Avro 730, or more interestingly, almost exactly like the Lockheed CL-400 "Suntan" proposal.

This same short span produced very little lift at low speed, which resulted in extremely long takeoff runs and frighteningly high landing speeds. In an SST design, this would have required enormous engine power to lift off from existing runways, and to provide the fuel needed, "some horribly large aeroplanes" resulted. Based on this, the group considered the concept of an SST unfeasible, and instead suggested continued low-level studies into supersonic aerodynamics.

Slender deltas

Soon after, Dietrich Küchemann at the RAE published a series of reports on a new wing planform, known in the UK as the "slender delta" concept. Küchemann’s team, including Eric Maskell and Johanna Weber, worked with the fact that …
