    Butch M and I traveled go Jamestown, Kansas to pick up a 1960's front engine dragster. It was last raced in the 1970's but I have no history or other info about it. I've spent the last few months working and updating the frame..next is to finish the body and paint. It will be ready for the HAMB drags in Aug

  11. Come on, all us old digger guys need all the details, especially on such a nice looking car.
    Are the photos with the motor the "as found"?
    Plus it snowed here all day and I'm bored watching the NASCAR guys crashing every couple laps.
