First Drag car I have ever had. I have always wanted to race but have never had the cash.

Bought this a few years back. Spent all I had on it. Brought it home painted it primer with spray cans, cleaned up the interior, and threw a beat up stock 350 truck motor in it just so i could get down the track a few times. Ran it 4 times before I spun a bearing. Ran mid 13's and was washing out bad at the top end when I got out of it.

So I took it to the local chassis builder and had it looked at. Found out it need some work. Had 4 link reworked and new springs put in it. Replaced wish bone with a diagonal link. Then he re-did everything from the firewall forward.

This ate up and motor money I had so the car had to sit until I could afford a motor for it.

Bought the motor pictured here and redid the firewall, wiring, and steering column.
New Headers, front brakes, powerglide, and rubber on all 4 corners

Ran it the tail end of 2012 and it runs great. Even won a few rounds. New convertor to pick up 60'times and we are ready for a full season 2013.

I could have never done this without the constant e-mails and phone calls to my Dad everyday for help and advice, without the help of some of the local racing buddies of my Dad's, and the understanding of my wife that doesn’t mind all my time in the shop.
