it is drawn with Autocad 2005. Resident geek is working on adding the rest of the tubes and once I check it over I will try to post it in a format that everyone can read.
That car was here in Indy for a while. It is a "Roy" (SPE) car that Mike Roth purchased and then sold to Bucky. Mike has an injected hemi car about ready to fire and is collecting parts to restore the Kentucky Moonshiner AA/GD of Frakes and Funk.
since I'm not the expert can someone tell a short wheelbase story, for example dragmaster,that lakewood chassis and more lately the kind like the zookeepers' car. like a thread from 1960 through 1970
Here are a couple shots of my new dragster that I am assembling now. It was built by Rick Kennedy a few years back for John Gates of Santee, Ca. As it was coming off the jig John's son wanted him to build and crew chief his newly purchased blown alky funny. The dragster chassis hung in a shop until a couple months ago when John saw my wanted add and we made a deal. I lucked out more than most guys realize. John has a TON of racing experience that goes back to the old days.... I hope to absorb as much as I can. He is a true old school hero, I'll post a few pic's of him.
I'm not sure how to type under the pic so that is Cliff Wright on left and Rick Kennedy on right (jig shot) some shots of John Gates in the day.
It is currently certified to 6 seconds. It is a 180" wheel base. Gates motor is currently building an alky injected 383 small block. I am going to run it at the ANRA events and maybe a few Heritage series events. Oops gotta go company's here.
Im not an expert either. But basicaly 1960 was about 96''wb and by 1970 it was 200''wb or more. they grew about 10'' a year.
