    Well, I posted this in the HAMB Message Board and probably should have posted it here. What I need to know is if this car could run in the competion roadster class at the HAMB DRAGS. I went to the the event the last two years and thought about bring this car this year. What yall think? :rolleyes:

    Hey Jeff/21, the car has a 350 sbc and the rear tires are 15 X 14 X 32. On a good day it runs mid 9's. It's just a fun car to play with and not really competitive in any sanctioned events.

    A-bone, I have had that 40 Ford for 41 years. I finished it in 1968 and have put over 100,000 miles on it. I just built a new engine for it and haven't install it yet. It now is running a 364 Nailhead with 6 deuces and a muncie M22 with 9" rear end. The new engine is a 401 Nailhead. Hope to get it installed after coming back from Mo-Kan. Maybe I can bring it to the HAMB DRAGS in 2010. :)

    My uncle has a 32 Bantam he is bringing similar to the car that started this thread. It has an injected BBC that should run mid 8's, if he has the cojones to run it out the back. He has run it at MoKan on the 1/8th and run 5.58 leaving at a dead idle foot braking it.
