    I dig the organ pipes. There were a few inliner dragster events at Irwindale in 68 or so. Just enough for a 4 car show. Still, the racing was cool despite the light turnout.

    What can we do to get that Pinto down the track?

    Short of sending you wheelbarrows full of cash LOL.

    How many remember "Ike Iacono" and his 303 Wayne Head GMC inline roadster? LADS, Colton, Riverside, San Fernando and many others. What a car and what a great person too! There are others here too. Kay Sissell really built up some top contenders too. His legend still lives with his shop in West Covina.

    The Slant Six was one of the long line of successful Chrysler engine designs. I still see them racing and they still amaze a lot of folks at the track. Coupled with a worked over A-727 would make a real competitive racer if done right.

    I've thought about putting a flattie in one of those split-windows. Bowtie boys would probably burn my house down.

    "I've thought about putting a flattie in one of those split-windows. Bowtie boys would probably burn my house down."

    Ha! Yes. There used to be a 67 Camero on the west coast in the 70's that ran a Ford flathead V-8. Anything to "fit" into a class!

    Anyone remember the Altered Bantam Roadster that I believe Car Craft helped build for an Explorer Scout troop with a Pontiac OHC 6 in the late 60s ? I ran as a build feature for several months in the magazine.
     
  22. FrozenMerc, I came across the pic from an old Goodguys race,Looks to be a old 351Cleveland hybrid head,3 heads cut and furnace brazed together.
     
  23. I haven't had a chance to hear it run yet.I will see if I can find out more info on the motor for you.A few posts back the yellow FED the car owner built the engine for my friend in Colorado,that engine was capable of running 8's.I think it is pretty much the same.
