I was out at Lime Rock Park in CT for the Vintage race and spotted this.
Found on the book of faces. 289 v8 powered 59 MG.
Well the Dragonsnake made an appearance in Goodwood yesterday and won its race (on road racing settings this time)...
Looks crudely photoshopped.
My small block Ford in a Healey is what I call a "new-old-school build". I did the swap about 10 years ago, but it was a shade-tree deal effort that was done like it would have been in the '60s. I recently had a small engine fire so it's time to replace the wiring harness, clean up the engine compartment, and maybe install some headers to replace the Sunbeam Tiger cast iron manifolds. I was lucky, I saw the flames through the hood louvers and was able to grab the extinguisher from the transmission tunnel to knock the fire down quickly with a relative minimum of damage. The message here is "Carry an Extinguisher." I cheaped out and bought a soda-acid one but next one will be Halotron so I don't have to clean up that yellow mess again (hopefully I'll never need it).
Are you aware of this web site? LOTS of builds like this there. http://www.britishv8.org/British-V8-Current-Issue.htm
Yep, and mine is already there! http://forum.britishv8.org/read.php?13,8264. Needs a good updating, though, and I'll do it once I put everything back together.
I'm glad you started this thread. Keep us updated.
I also had a 1959 AH 100-6 in High school sbc powered. Just picked up a Sebring mx
In so many ways Boner! I wonder if that's a California picture also.
Apparently she built it as well.
I thought so.
Another significant, vintage road racing hot rod special!!
