How did you get so much experience and still not finish you first build from like 4 years ago!?!?!
ALL OF MY EXPERIENCE IS IN DRIVING MYSELF CRAZY WITH STUFF LIKE THIS!!!
That's how! I also totally changed my plan and started over just a little over two and a half years ago then encountered some life stuff.
Any new updates on this cool build? Hope it hasn't gone by the wayside.
No real updates on the project. I have been busy with OT projects, building out my shop (just electrical and a paint job left) starting a new job, etc. The car was initially broken down in the fall of 2017 to make space for other projects and has not got back to the front of the line yet. I have been collecting parts though. Picked up a flare box with full V8-60 running gear below it last year and just this last week picked up a utility trailer with a Mopar double dip axle under it. I have been casually looking for a 270 or 302 GMC for either this car, the other roadster, or my 30/31 coupe. Someday I would like to build something to run at Bonneville and would likely do it in the XO engine class.
Great find, those future 200MPH Bonneville front axles turn up in odd places. Bob
Had another one of these Mopar axles follow me home yesterday. That makes 2 in 2 weeks. What are the odds?
