"Saw your second reply!!!! I bet, they get proud of their stuff when you get into one off pieces!!!! The last full on race motor I had was a 447 (0.100 over 427) and it was 15 1/2 to one, closed chambered heads with a set of open chamber style piston hand fitted to the combustion chamber, took the machinist and engine builder that did all the machine, head and balance work close to forty hours of grinding, claying and checking to get them that close of a fit, and bet yours is like it, it exploded when you initially fired it, actually had people jump off the ground in the staging lanes if they happened to be close to it when I would start it because it startled them so bad!!!! And although a big block most that had not seen the hood off would swear that was the nastiest sounding small block they had ever heard because of how quick it revved and turned up when it left the line!!! Hope it last for a long time with no issues and stay safe and have much success!!! "

I am one of the old geezers. Just retired early this year and finally finding time to work on my 72 Cheyenne swb project. I have always loved cars, bikes, and boats. I have a nostalgia 49 Thames (Anglia) racetruck that was originally built in 1971. My first involvement was with a 48 Anglia sedan drag car that my neighbor owned when I was in my early teens and I have loved them since. I sold my Anglia streetrod a few years back and miss having a car to cruise in. Guess I will be building something to replace it soon. Maybe a 31 3-window Ford coupe built in the traditional style. I have a some old race equipment that could be used in the build that would fit the 50's style. Nov 2011 update. Got a nice 30 5-window coupe for cruising. Building a 56 Chevy sedan gasser. Frame cut and refabricated for a straight axle front end out of 50 Chevy truck. Disc brakes on front and drums on back. 455 Olds power with a Muncie M22 4-speed behind it. Body work and paint in progress.
