    I love the fact that you're going with a nailhead. That's the exact thing I was going to do with my '62 Skylark before I had to sell it when I moved.

    Now that you have a pre-historic donk, are you going to airbrush "Fruity Pebbles" or "Coco Pebbles" on the side?

    :D

    Can't wait to see it!

    I cast my vote for Fruity Pebbles, maybe with a dayglo sparkly unicorn on the trunk.

    Radiator ducting? Does that mean the radiator will be in the trunk?
     
  15. ^^^^For sure! Ever see a Paxton-blown 401 in the engine bay of a 61 Skylark!?!?!?

    NO ROOM!!

    I looked through your whole thread and loved what you are doing. I too am building a street freak gasser style car. 1963 Pontiac full sized Catalina. Still in building mode but getting closer. I mocked up my motor and twin turbo system for a car show and won "Best Motor" award.

    They were laughing because it was the only car at the show that did not run.

    I am mounting the radiator in the trunk as well. This is a mock up of the trunk area.

    And twin fans and shroud under the floor.

    I'm watching to see what you use as piping etc to transfer the liquids to the front and back. I bought a 50 GPM remote pump and have been looking at copper tubing to pipe the water. So I'm interested in seeing your solution.
