    I see alot of you guys have FEDs on here. I was kinda wondering how many of you have them. Secondly how many of you still race them. Any year make an model is cool.

    Lets see what you have a tell a story...

    Most people probably don't think it's funny. You seriously should think of changing it. It is very offensive.

    I always thought a FED of a small displacement, non-blown class would be cool to have and/or build. As far as driving one though, I'm pretty sure my pistachios would make me lift w-a-y before I got to the lights.

    ^^^^ That's what I thought in the late 70's/early 80's when I built my FED ^^^^. It started off running 10.05 E.T.'s like clockwork, and that was right where the guy I built it for to take out was. But, you ALWAYS want to go faster, run quicker, and it bit! Fastest/quickest was a 9.23 @ 146 MPH, with a 340 HP short block SBC and some old style P and P'd heads. Next dragster was a RED Super Comp Car, an 8.90 Index Class. You always want to go faster, and quicker. My neuro-surgeon however, put an end to my dragster racing days; "you can't do that!". He was a private pilot though, and he was fine with that if I wanted to learn to fly (???). I don't think he really understood what I was doing, it was't Top Fuel for crying out loud, but he said NO! Now, I'm building a Sportsman Class Bracket Car (may have to slow it down), that will do double duty as my "old-man-sleeper-car"; I hate them tuners and Mustang morons. I am Butch/56sedandelivery.

    Currently restoring this one--Long/Hanna/Pink/Nancy/Cerney/Kelly and I also have an RCS (Huszar) that will be the next project.
    As it was in 1971

    And when I purchased it (after I ditched some of the non original crap). I do have the original back half complete with the original 3 point roll bar and that will be mated with the surviving front half in the near future.
