    Any of you guys with 32s or similar cars, have you ever put your cars on the scales? I was just curious what weight range mine will be in. (Fenderless 3w, SBC, Muncie, 9", no creature comforts)

    That's a nice front to rear balance you have. It should handle great. Good looking car too.

    My old Sedan Deliv, was 2559 lbs according to the scales at my local recycler/scrapper. But 225 lbs of that could be attributed to my fat ass:(

    My sedan. Aluminum head 351w/t5/champ winters quick change. Has some extra steel reinforcement in the body and cowl steering brace system, pretty spartan interior, but has a back seat and a large fuel tank. Frame is pretty stout, I tend to overbuild most parts. 2760 lbs with a full tank (16 gallons).[​IMG]
