    You might want to put some form of propulsion in there if you want to show anybody anything. I could beat that thing walking backwards, as it sits. [​IMG]

    Neat car, did you build it? Did you get it running after the pic was taken? Will it ever run? Looking forward to seeing some time slips, because as we say out here. "when the green flag drops, the bullshit stops.."

    Yup... actually, I'd consider running a Briggs & Stratton in it, make a bitchin' pit runner!

    Looks like something from the late 50's, early 60's. What's the story?

    Gee, thanks. For the past 75 years, we Californians have been trying to figure out this whole drag race and hot rod thing.

    Pat Bilbow showed the West Coast what a rail looked like in 1959 with the Eliminator chassis made in Wilks Barre, Pa. So why are you building a Scotty Fenn T.E. 448 style chassis that he built in Inglewood, Ca? I'm confused.

    You mean the Bilbow chassis Tucci cleaned their clocks in CA with? You mean the one that was sent to England to represent an American dragster was made on the East Coast?

    Frame is tack welded,,rear is a bolt in with adjustable height and front spring is vice gripped,,cool staged photo.. perhaps a "hey look what I'm building" would have been more in order

    ...it appears that you have not posted on our forums in several weeks, why not take a few moments to ask a question, help provide a solution or just engage in a conversation with another member in any one of our forums?

    it appears fascinating content is much more difficult to find around here these days, maybe it's just me
