Some pretty cool race cars posted here! Some of them look pretty serious. I'm not going to get that crazy and just want to have a little fun with a street / strip car. That said, I picked up this dual quad 392 Hemi for my '34. Now I have to figure out what trans to run. An automatic would be better for drag racing and easier / cheaper install but the thought of banging the gears sounds pretty fun. Either way, I'm going drag racing boys!
Hey!! That's a Pontiac engine in there! Good for you!
In the 70's I drove this everyday and raced it on the weekends. Then moved on to race only cars but building a 39 coupe for the street now . I'm sure it will see the track at some point.
