Start of the new car
Here are some quick pics of the new car. Waiting on crower for the lifters so the motor can be finished up. I will post final pics when this thing comes to life.

From the cockpit pic, it looks like you're on the high banks of Daytona ! You in the 500 this weekend ? :D :D
GORGEOUS hotrod !

Thanks guys.

We are located in Alliance, OH which is between Youngstown and Canton.

The motor will be an aluminum 582. Brodix block, 3xtra 365 oval head, brodix intake with eagle crank and rods with diamond pistons. Rupert 1250 alky carb. Vickers Trans with Abruzzi converter. This combo in the 2010 car with the steel block weighed in at 1985lbs after cutting weight and ran 4.70-4.80 143-144mph and 7.50s 178-179mph. This car has some carbon fiber upgrades and the aluminum block with hopes to be under 1900 race ready.

And if the view from the cockpit ever gets like that we are in trouble!!!

Looks great Shawn! Always wanted to run a dragster, just couldn't afford to buy a longer trailer :lol:
