Got to start my car tonight.Been October since I've heard it run.Feels like I got my second wind now.Boy,those 4" pipes talk!!!Just waiting on axles and rear brakes and I'll be done!!Seems strange to own a tubbed car.I know it's not a big deal too alot of you guys,but to me a tubbed car was always something the"big guys" had.Anyway,I'm having a blast.Time well spent and money well wasted!!

Ive never seen a tunnel ram like that before, the upper half looks like its a dual plane?

It is sorta a dual plane.The divider goes down about 1 1/2" then it has a 1" gap that's wide open.I never seen one either,so I snatched it up.The Olds,hopefully will be ready in a few weeks.The rail,probably next season :cry: Out of $$$$.Business is slow
