Yep. We are really gonna do it. Two kids that have never even been to Bonneville before are going to attempt to build a 200mph street coupe with little to no budget and a complete and total lack of know how... Seriously, we are as niave as a couple of gear heads can be. Clueless. That's where you guys come in. We plan on using the group knowledge of the HAMB to get us to Bonneville in 2006 or '07 or whenever the hell we get there... and we plan on documenting everything here on the HAMB. You guys can pick our work apart, laugh at us, teach us, yell at us, whatever... It's going to be great fun. So where do we start? Well, we have nothing. Zilch. Nada. We know we want a coupe (most likely a model-a), we know it will be powered by a pretty nasty small block, and we know we both have to fit in it as we plan on driving it to the flats from Kansas City, MO. Ohhhh, and its gotta have some what of a traditional hot rod vibe to it. The most responsible thing to do we are guessing is to start at the platform/foundation - the frame. A low center of gravity seems to be pretty important, but this is gonna make fitting both of our tall asses in the car a problem. And then I started thinking about Metalshape's roadster and how roomy it was... And then Kevin realized he had a 30/31 coupe in pieces in his rafters... hummmm.... ummm, Metalshapes???? How the hell did you "unibody" that roadster of yours? We need your help - serve it up. Pictures would be rad. Any other thoughts on chassis? Keep in mind that we are firm on doing a coupe from 29 to 31.
