    We got the car runnin just in time for the HOTROD NATIONALS here in seattle, My dad (FEDER) has put alot of work into this car the last couple of years since we blew it up at this event two years ago. He built a new injected 440 chrysler for it, custom made all his own headers, watering system,oil pan and intake manifold's to relocate the injectors. we clipped the front of the car and moved the motor back 10".
    we got 4 passes on saturday to break in the new motor and 1 time only on sunday before eliminations. first pass on sunday the car went 10.05 @132.7mph. we went five rounds before gettin eliminated in the semi finals, we were pretty excited to win some money and do so well on its first time out. And to top off the weekend, Monday the old man cut a perfect light A .000 , not bad for being out of the seat for a couple years. were hopin to get it out a few more times before the seasons over, we would like to tune it into the 9.80's, so wish us luck.

    We had to take this picture, we figured this was the closest we would get to racin a AA/S(ok so we were only parked next to it in the stagin lanes but we can dream "hahaha"). the renero's austin ended up winning in AA/S with a 6.80 @204mph and they deserved it what a great bunch a guys.

    Some of you HOTROD readers might recognise this car from the A/FX shoot out a couple months back. the starter broke in the stagin lanes and he never got to make a pass but the cars has run 10.60.

    I do recognize said car. That's Richard Lefevbre's car, right? I think that article was from more than a few months ago.

    Pretty funny...as soon as I scrolled down and saw the picture the first words that I uttered were "that's badass" and then the next post from BufordT said the same thing. I'm betting everybody does.
    This makes me want to restore that damned altered 57 too!

    Thanks for kind words fellas.
    the injectors are hilborn standard wedge size not max wedge size, they work real well for old an mechanical system. the car idles good at around 1000rpm's.
    VON, we dont have any suspension shots of it but it runs morrison ladder's and coilovers in the rear and a alston front clip with rack n pinion and coilovers. car weighs 2600lbs dry. I have not figured out how to resize these pics yet so there kinda small but heres a couple shots of the mill, most everything you see is custom made in our garages not much mail order.

    That is a good looking car and an even better looking motor...definitely looks the business. And very respectable times right out of the box...you guys should be proud!
     
  20. I love those old Darts!
    And that motor and the ET's you're running makes it that much better!

    Keep us posted!
