Phil,
Here is the BOSS website page for the rules:
http://www.dirtstreetstocks.com/2004%20Rules.htm

To my knowledge, tho, there is no BOSS Series right now. Don Whiteside cancelled it a bit ago due to lack of cooperation among promotors or something like that. He will chime in here I'm sure.

You should email Dean Hoag at: blackrockspeedway@yahoo.com

He may answer your questions, or if you want a good solid rulebook to build by, get a set of the Hurricane Pure Stock Series rules. They spell everything out entirely and with the exception of what tires are run, they are pretty much what Black Rock, Woodhull, Thunder Mt., Redline, Skyline, Afton, Penn Can, 5 Mile Point, and many others are using for this class.
If you need the rules, come see me. I have them. Or they'll be available at the Syracuse show in March.

Thanks Dayton, you might be able to help me on this, do you have to run the complete stock firewall and how much of the stock floor do you have to use. I will probably call tomarrow afternoon about some of the parts you have for sale and if you know anyone with a cheap standard frame (73-77 monte carlo or chevelle)this probably won't be done until next year,on my own.thanks again. By the way the look like the same rules I found for blackrock on www.raceproweekly.com they have all their rules under the picture for all the classes.

our purestocks up in ny, that are legal at the southern tier tracks and northern tier for the most part need no stock floor or fire wall anymore.most of the top guys i've seen locally when the southern guys came up here to fulton were built like our cars.i have a mid 70s chevelle chassis x pro stock for sale cheap that could easiy be converted to a pure stock.76 chevelle chassis new 86 cutlass body complete roller minus motor/tranny.it won the 99 fulton speedway pro points championship we bought it as a backup and never used it.500 or bo located 30 min north of syracuse call 315-695-2864 anytime for more info.

I can't say you'll have much success finding a frame like that around here anymore, Phil. Metric chassis/frames are almost gone as well, and it's been harder yet to spot any of the 73-77's.
Let me know when you need any parts.

You know where I'm at when you need me.

phil sent you an e-mail, kp i still don't have much prob finding the metric stuff up here near syr for parts BUT i do have prob finding usable frames.i got a guy that deals in monte ss parts mainly interior and some body i get the rest for free. the suspension parts are usually okay but after all these years driving around in the salt and sand in the winter the frames are almost always beat, it used to be just the rear which we cut and replace anyways but me and my dad junked prob 10 or so montes in the past year and almost all of them had rotted front clips on the pass behind the tire or the bottoms were rotted right thru.and it seems like if they are not rotted they are seriuosly bent. i found a nice rust free cutlass up here a while back in a junkyard but the left front horn was parallel with the cross memeber. these midwest guys don't know how good they got it.lol.i have not seen a solid floor pan in years. don't think i have ever got a car where the rear trunk area was still attached to the frame.

as a former DIRT regular i understand totally .on the plus side,when i moved south(charleston s.c.)i found the only salt on the roads here is at the beach!there is such an abundance of metric cars at the junkyards here in town,they CRUSH these cars on a regular basis.i run a camaro,and can still find these cars with ease.why am i telling you this?pm. me and i can put you in touch with local salvage yards,or i know where a couple are for sale right now.yep it's a long trip,it takes me 13 hours to get to syracuse,but if you could bring back a couple you would be set for a little while.no rust is a GREAT thing!

Bodies are the EASY part.....just get in touch with the guys at US Express Unlimited in Lansing, NY.
See: http://www.usexpressunlimited.com

They build legal bodies for pure stocks all over NY state, and also do frame work, suspension work, and cage building.

hey bob, just in case you forgot my e-mail address for the pics it is mustang98@thedirtforum.com I am really interested depending on the condition of the car. You can also reach me at 607-962-4902. I am probably going to the show in Syracuse in march and I might stop up and look at the car or more if I can find a trailer to borrow by then.By the way you don't happen to have an extra 9 inch rear end do you, rules say we can run them if not I'll the one that's in it.

don't have any 9inch fords, but you can use them, trying to geta pic but due to large amounts of snow currently in the area of my yard getting a pic will be hard. if you are going to be up for the show in two weeks let me know we are about 20min max from the fairgrounds.as far as bodys go it's not too bad finding them now that we can use the newer fwd stuff. i got my 88 cutlass at the abandon car auction and the yards are loaded with 88-95 regal/lumina/granprix and cutlass plus you can use tornados and a few other gm cars will fit with oput much work. the bodys that us express does are also nice and affordable too, i saw starks car at the vic and was impressed.one thing nice bout the rust belt when you get a car home and you gotta take the rear clip off usually all we have to do is take off the bungee/clothes line/tye wire or electrical wire thats wrapped around the bumper threw the trunk and the whole thing will fall off.lol
