Default Looking for a name for my new venture...

We are opening a small catering business, we are trying to come up with a name that relates to muscle cars/racing/hotrods. I am highly considering putting a class 3 on my '68 Nova and using it at events along with our pig cooker. I haven't bought it yet, still sort of shopping........I really like this cooker, but I have to do my homework. Anyone have any references for a builder? The one in the pic is around $2k. Any ideas or name suggestions would be appreciated! No, I don't care if you make any jokes! :lol:

This is the '68 it might be attached to. How would it look rolling into a car show with a pig on it! Go ahead, tell me I am STUPID! Just like my wife did!

WOW, that is one sweet looking 68, very nice.

I don't think the idea is too far fetched, dont know how the pig would turn out cruising down the road, thinking it may be hard keeping the temp right?

We put a set of headers on a grill for a bar. They were off a derby car. they went up like pulling tractors. We were going to just bolt them on but we actually holesawed the grill so smoke would come out the headers.

There is a vendor that comes to Gateway that has an actual front engine dragster converted in to a bbq grill / smoker. I'm trying to find info and pics of it for you. I think it's called "Nitro Hog"

I'm pretty sure this is a pic of the drivers area of the grill. The round yellow object is the end of the cooker.

Charles,
Thanks for the compliment! I think this might be the one I keep for good, I really like it. Unfortunately it is undergoing a transformation right now. It will be the same color, but it will be much faster than before. BTW, it wasn't very fast to start with ops: I will post some pics soon. The cooker will no doubt work while rolling, we have done it before. You do want to limit the distance traveled though to a couple hours. It also must be a quality cooker with ALL seams completely welded to prevent the wind from entering, I had one the seams were spot welded, IT SUCKED for retaining heat.
Slow,
That is a cool set up they have! The headers have given me an idea. Thanks for sharing your info!
ajk:
Yes, it will be powered by a big block
Squeals on Wheels! I love it!
Sam,
Thanks for the pm.
