You can go back and forth all day long. NHRA has always made arbitrary decisions. In 1964, after running all season and passing tech, we flat...
Was this the car before the MG they ran?
I think I mentioned before somewhere. Buick nailhead into 57 Chevy at 18 years old. 1962-63. Had help from a good friend and my brother-in-law.
Where did Jim Street get his money? Does anybody Know?
Missed out on my dream car at 15 years old. A channeled Duece 5w. with early Olds and hydro. The guy wanted 75.00 and I had 60.00. That was a lot...
I'm a freak for americans. Your coupe looks really good.
Communist China strikes again.
NHRA hasn't changed. A good friend set a record in there 7 second Ford. NHRA said they had the wrong screws in the carb throttle plates. Holley...

What Butch said. Bolts might be loose, but I'll put my money on the contact ring.
OMG ! So many Fords without a Ford, Mopars without a Mopar. Didn't look to see if any GM without a GM. When will the rioting start ?
Great looking !
Who would have a convert. with black walls and small hub caps ?
So nice to find something that is tastefully done. No billet crap or Chinese chrome add ons.
I like your thinking and approach. Very impressive.
I've had a few C-1 Corvettes. Loved them all. The almost vertical steering wheel does take getting used to. I agree, those critical are just...
I was wondering the same thing. A resistor on 6V?
Citric Acid. It doesn't matter how long you leave the part in, unlike muriatic acid. It will go stale after derusting many parts. I really got to...
