    Built this one in 3 months last summer. It's a blast and it's full on old school. An early Frankland quicky,
    '56 F100 front end, and a 491 pump gas BBC make this '55 Buick my interpretation of a home-built 60's gasser.

  3. Had this 46 a few years ago. Sold it to 16 year old girl. Good body but whoever did the faux gasser thing didn't know what they 46 Ford #5 209.JPG were doing. Oh well, just another flash in the pan.

    Rocketsled59, very nice car! I hope you make it to the Meltdown Drags! The only bad thing is after you walk around, check the cars out, the smell of burning rubber, racing gas & the smell of delicious burgers cooking! Plus the sight of all this old metal racing! You'll be saying, I should of brought my car! I should of brought my car!

  18. Things are going well Cob! Did you get that pesky issue with the Plymouth figured out yet? Maybe, I need to come visit you!:D There's a chance I'm going to Good Guys in Des Moines in July??? I'm getting VERY close to turning the key now.
    P.S. Thanks rocketsled59 for the kind words.
