Now, that fucking thing looks like FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here's a shot of mine. Still in progress.
I really like this one, Has it been down the track?
Here is one of my projects was told it s was been this way since the early 80s
Here is a few pics of mine 50 dodge ,426 wedge ,727,8 3/4 posi.
Here is mine.
I know most of you have probably already seen it. Its in chassis shop purgatory right now getting minimal updates so we can race it again without geting harrassed by the tech guys. We're getting a good deal on the price as long as he gets to work on it in between his daily projects and we don't pester him. Updated photos coming soon!
Heres mine. It ran out of Turlock, CA in Modified Production in the late '60s and early '70s, then D/GS with an injected smallblock and a 5:86 Olds rear.
It sat from the late '70s until I found it in 2006 less engine and trans. Found out the hard way that the 15x4 US mag front wheels are only .060 thick in the bead area (cracked one). Im still not sure if the new ET's look right on the car!
I think they look great! With all the new wheels on the market (ET & Rocket to name 2) I am gonna have a hard time deciding if Americans are what I really want. Are your wheelwells radiused?
Im starting to like them more and more, maybe its the 1200 pound rating that bothers me after one of the U.S slots broke?
The wheel wells are radiused, looks like they tried to mimic the stock shape with just a folded over lip. They were probably cut out for the 11.5/29.5 Firestone Drag 500's that were on it. They also torched about an inch out of the leaf springs in 4 places!
Passenger quarter is moved out more that the drivers due to the axle bearing retainer I lost at Hot August Nights a couple years ago. Ill never again trust an axle bearing that has sat idle for 25-30 years!
Been working on this one for a few months now. Found in a barn, history is sketchy, was raced in the 60s gasser wars in SoCal.

Remember the turd car? It has progressed.
Is that my old car that I sold to Jim/Jeff?
Yes it is, they really got me on that one. Looks different now doesn't it? It still has a long way to go.
What's the one in your avatar?
It's a different car, a 41.
This is under your old car now.
Thanks but I don't deserve all the credit. I knew exactly what I wanted, designed and made some parts plus had a local young builder here do a lot of work on it since I had the other one to work on myself. He did some really nice metal work on it. You know how it was, it has come a long way.
It's there. Go to the classifieds and do a search for " 48 Anglia" it will come up.
heres mine, i am still looking for its history........
here is my search thread on the hamb
i was in pomona for the gnrs and found more info on Advance speed and marine: John pandeles managed the covina store 1968-70 , he did not remember the car but it could have been sponsored from another store ,he said there were 5 advance marine stores.
stores were located in :
-holt ave in west Pomona
-w Covina on Vincent
-Covina on hacienda blvd
Advance went out of business in 75-76
Advance owner was Joel mattes
Sponsored: brown henry j, 67-68 hemi Gtx shortened 2 ft
it looks like the stude might have been sponsored by the store in w. pomona , it was on the north side of holt . Jim Savage was the manager of the store .....does anyone know how to contact him?
That's not working either. Maybe you can just tell me about it in PM instead of the chase?
I got mine back. I'll take pics later.
