    That chassis is 14 years old and who knows what the owners might have changed on it. Your best bet would be to contact Tommy and see what he has to say about it.

    wouldn't be hard to find out if its a TM car or not...post up some pic's...I can look at the welds and tell you if its not a TM car...I have had many friends past and present work for TM

    for the record TM was placing chassis tags on his cars 14 yrs ago but as the other gentlemen said who knows what the owners have changed over the years

    hmmmmmmm ?? I looked at the pics and from what I could tell its a decent quality Tig Weld and could have been the quality from tm's shop from years ago..I knew both wolfman and jethro who both welded for TM and its comparable to their work from what I could tell..wolfman also welded up the cage in a 65 nova i had.


    now something said in the article I will call bs on right now...he said the engine is "Fulton Competition " motor....Now if he is referring to Gene Fulton its A BUNCH OF horse Hockey...Gene Fulton doesn't use eagle anything in his engines...that I can assure you.


    Makes me scratch my head after reading that one

    nothing wrong with eagle on budget motors for weekend warriors and people that play around..Gene Fulton builds and sells nothing but high dollar motors with high dollar parts even his cheap motors is high dollar...cost a man 65k to walk out with a 800+ci Gene Fulton turnkey engine.
    he will use a 4k sonny bryant crank vs a $1200 eagle crank...you not gonna sell Scotty Cannons pro-mod sponsors #4 800ci turn key engines for 65k a piece with Eagle rods ,cranks etc.....

    not trying to Bash on Eagle, they are great at what they do and that is good solid budget parts for budget racers....not 3,000 to 5,000 hp world class engines

    call him and ask him why he doesn't use that stuff....lol...but let it be known I warned you beforehand....
