I built this street/strip car back in 95'. After 13 years of racing and driving to shows all over the country, the stroked small block was tired out. I painted a car for a buddy that traded me a 429 SCJ with 4 bolt mains. It was in need of a rebuild, so it got a 523 stroker kit. Still in need of a LOT of chassis work to make this thing launch straight, because it rarely did, my good friend Lou Novotny helped me out with a nice 10 point cage and a few other old racer's tricks. 3 years of hard work and 2 back surgeries later, I finally got the old Mortician back on the road. My dad, the man I learned all my hot rodding and painting from, was a huge help as always. I had an old Millarkey ad in a 50's Rod and Custom with "kill sticker" decals for sale in it. I was an Airman, my oldest daughter Shelby is currently in the Air Force, so I always thought a few rows of Kill stickers would look cool. He made them up for me last week, so I had to post some pics. I've been very fortunate to have a dad that inspired me to love cars and taught me to build them. I'm even lucky enough to have my kids share the same passion. My oldest wears a picture of her 72 Maverick on her dog tags. On another note, I have read a lot of great reviews about Hurst Tires and the excellent customer service from Cody at Adams Hot Rod Rubber. I had a different opinion on the tires 10 years ago, but after reading numerous user's compliments on the HAMB about their love of Hurst, I decided to try a pair of their front runners, since I already had rear tires. I have to say, they look cool, ride nice, are well balanced, and people dig the look they have. Just like everyone here says, they company is top notch. So, as soon as I tune out a few bugs I'll be back at the strip to see what she'll do. There's an 8-71 blower in the near future, if all the plates, screws, and cadaver bones in my back hold up to the new engine.
