    Well, I've probably had the car on the road for about four weeks now. I just have been procrastinating this thread. I posted some pics on here before, but those were just mock up. For those of you who haven't seen it yet, it has a '68 chevelle 327 bored bored to a 331, Double hump 2.02 heads, high lift cam, 10/1 compression, holley 390's, large journal steel crank, and so on. The trans is a built th400 with a shift kit a hipster torque converter with a 3500 stahl. The rear is a 9 in. ford with a 3.89 posi nodular 3rd member and 31 spline moser axles. Front brakes are 67 volvo 122s discs on a 38 willys straight axle. Rear has stock disc brakes. steel tilt front. drag link steering set up. runs like a raped ape. Haven't run it at the strip yet, but I expect it to run low 12s, high 11s. The first pic was when it was stock the way I bought it.

    Looks great. I was looking forward to checking it out at the Byron drag strip show but am glad you got the mechanical problem fixed. The shirt I got from you is killer.
  7. I love you henry j. You gotta bring it to the pile-up! I would ask for better engine shots, but bringing it to the pile-up will do.:D

    A gasser ain't 'done' till it's faster than your reflexes...

    Yes it will be at the pile-up. And the front end wasn't too tricky to set up. I used the original stub and hung the axle on a milk crate with tie wire. It worked. He rides great and doesn't pull, and that's just alighning the front end with a tape measure. I haven't really showed it to the PD, Zettle Bros. But I also haven't been pulled over yet. I have a friend that knows most of the cops. I'm sure that helps
