Default Miss Serendipity

I don't usually do build logs until I'm done, because my builds have a tendancy to wander off into left field and fade away. Counting on you guys to keep me straight, and help through the rough spots. A kick in the rear, or a pat on the head as needed.

Where I'm at:

Got the stone axe [300 Ford six] unloaded and undressed

Shaved the brackets on the S10 posi rear

Ordered a stick of 1 1/2" x 3" x 3/16" tube. Steel yard looking for 6" pipe drops for driveshaft loops and gonad guard.

Axle, spindles, split wishbones: due Weds, spring shipped.

Tin seat, fuel cell, and vega steering box ready

NHRA rulebook on order

Pictures to follow

Cool, another one under way.

Don't forget to send me some specifics and a picture when you're ready, so I can add yours to the photo & info thread.
Yes, parts piles & intentions do qualify for the thread.

Glad to see that we have another SDRA car being built. As I have said many time on my thread, I do pictures better than writing so the more the better. Are you going to run a C-4, C-6 or a glide for a trans?

One of the group in the Pacific Northwest cars is running a 300 Ford. If I recall he was running 11.50 - 11.75 with pie cut nostalgia slicks. Would love to see what it would run on 6" street tires.

Remember "Pictures, Pictures, Pictures"

Looks like a good start on parts. I like those mid 30's wide five spindles and wheel.

Are you going to modify that intake and run 6 one barrels?

Keep us all in the loop as we love to see a build move forward.

I thought I was going to run a C6, unfortunately I couldn't tell the difference between C6 and E4OD. I can now! I'll have to see how the guys in Tulsa feel about stand-alone tranny-control computers.

I'd love to go with stacked fuel injection on this motor, but ... that isn't quite within the rules either. Seems like a natural spot for a homemade box plenum type manifold. I've got a pair of Holly/Weber progressive two barrels that might be legal. I'm not sure what four barrel I could use.

The wheel is swap meet '39, on a modern JFZ wide five hub, borrowed for mock up from Miss Enid (my avatar). I've been looking forever for the adapter snouts to Ford spindles, without any luck. Plan B is empty Ford wide five hubs and drums, like Marty Strode used.

DodgeBrother, Wish I could say you could run that trany, BUT sorry, no computors.
Yes, you can run those carbs. Most any 4bbl. carb is ok. I think a vac. sec. carb has a lot of advantages in launching the car to prevent wheel spin. Thanks for asking your questions as they help other people wanting to build these cars.

Anyone need an E4OD?

Axle arrived. Stone axe on dolly. Off to Goodguys Lonestar. Hopefully will be able to steal some ideas, and score some swap meet treasure.

Run a 1972-78 C4 that was behind a 302, or 351W, the C4 eats less HP than a C6, or E4OD

The tubing looks good sitting on the roll cage like that.

Amen, brother. Do you ever get tempted, to section out the center third of your bucket, and just forget all about tinwork?

How old are you? The first two Dodge Brothers both died in 1920. We have a 27 Dodge coupe sitting in my friends shop, with a 53 Chrysler hemi in it. the owner died last summer. It is for sale by his wife, I think it is or was on Craigs list (Tulsa). We hope that you will race with us in Tulsa.

If I had your E-Mail, I could send pictures. not trying to sell, just thought that you might like to see them. Joe

I'm 61. I only feel old enough to have died in 1920! I plan on racing in Tulsa, but then, at my age, I'm too old to plan buying green bananas!

Damn Kids! I'll be 66 in April. You are only old if you make your mind up to be old. I may be growing older, but I damn well refuse to grow UP! Keep at the build, it will help keep you young.

Yeah, I still have a hard time keeping the snot wiped off my nose.

Thingy, I'm glad you're keeping the car. The SDRA guys out here can use another racer, and you're a good one. I'm looking forward to lining up with you again.

3DB, your parts pile's looking like it might just become a car.

Gentlemen (and you too, Thingy ), every HAMBster built (whether HA/GR or SDRA) helps both classes.

You have the right attitude Dick, Peter Pan is a good role model. Find the engine and trans you want and get back at it. Racing keeps us young!
