Lets get to the bottom line.
1. How are you going to drive the car?? Answered above.
2. How fast do you expect to go?? 11.50 or higher, stock frame and suspension....Put in any roll bar you want, as it does not count.
11.49 or quicker, you need a legal bar or go home.
Put in a modified suspension, like a tube/beam axle, a full cage would be required, I would think, and that would really ruin the car, not for me.
I have lots of ways to race these cars and be reliable. Jim (Vetrod)

Hi Jim. As you know, the HAMB is probably the best nesting place for old Vette gassers. What better way to promote your vision for racing old Vettes than to seek national attention at the HAMB DRAGS? You hinted at racing another HAMB Vette there in one of your other posts.
Would love to be there but the fun money jar is empty (kids at uni). Maybe next year......
A not to miss weekend for the Webbers! Cannot wait
Thanks for all the leg work to make this happen.
My first time to get to attend. Looking forward to it. In and paid.
Summer Road trip to the Hamb Drags with General Gow....and it's even wife approved....not sure it get's much better than this...
Not sure it's REAL yet...
thrashing on the ranchero gasser done as we speak, hope i get accepted
Your wheel standing '55 will get a LOT of attention at the HAMB Drags.
can our 59 plymouth savoy gasser be considered for an entry in the 200 car field ?
Amen can't wait to see that bad boy
How did I miss this???!!!! Just sent some pictures to you.
Accepted and paid. Let's go racing!!!
