    finally back building my chevy II powered one-man-modified with Weber side drafts mounted on a dugan head; hand built header and side pipe. S10 5 speed, V8 quick change, schroeder sprint box steering and a Bell wheel. 5 gallon gas tank tucked into the rear quarters hoping to be able to go 50 miles :) this is not a long distance cruiser! This is my version of the old time lakes race car. Hope you like it!

  8. It's about time, I wondered what happened to this build. I saved an earlier picture in my roadster files.
    Love it!

    That looks great. I like the springs and the overall proportions, great lines! That engine should move it well.

    Its great to see this back up again. I had saved pictures on my old computer from years ago. Love the "out of the box" thinking. Now get your arse in gear and get it finished!!
    Cheers,
    Stewart.

    I love the quarter eliptic springs at all 4 corners! very interested to see driving dynamics when you start testing as I'm considering that for a larger, 2-seat build...
