    LOW 10S, HIGH 9S, but the mph would indicate about a second faster, with today's transmission and tire technology.

    kinda makes me think of a straight 6 on the next project depending on what I use. Was there many 240 or 300 fords used? or mainly the chevy or slant 6?

    After the mid sixties when the 240/300 was introduced many of the front runners switched to Ford power; some with hybrid V8 heads. Search Arnold, Andrews, Williamson, Majors, Huettman, Ambrose, Treadwell, Sizemore and others.

    Anything would have been ran. The 302 Jimmy with a Wayne head was probably the most common inliner of the "front runners"

    Dave Malcom's dragster has always been a favorite of mine. A local car, I remember riding my bike by Lanears shop as a kid and seeing it when he was building the headers. Rumor is Dave still has the car and it's slated for a restoration.

    Is there anything out there with an 308 International Black Diamond in it?

    It is kind of cool to see what people did in the day to push the limits with what they had. Would have never looked twice at a inline.

    I had an old truck with a Blue Diamond 260 that was pretty impressive. The Black Diamond 308 is basically the same engine. They have 7 mains and are about the same size as a GMC. It would need a better head. I have seen after market intakes for them at swap meets.

    Well it should be legal in XO/classes at Bonneville. Put one in a car and run it.

    Don't have one just thinking. I ran into the guy that has my old "First National" at Hot August Nights after I had seen an aluminum intake at the swap meet and it just got me thinking. I think too much and do to little. I saw on another old thread where you were talking about a Red Diamond. I guess they are all diamonds in the rust .:rolleyes:

    I believe the black diamond is not legal by the SCTA rules but the red is along with older ones.

    That looks like a Model Y Ford - the predecessor to the Anglia.
    Three SU carbs, DOHC, I'm guessing Jag power.

    All I know is Red Diamond lifters fit in a '32 Plymouth lifter bore and have the same dia. foot. So, if you want to convert a 32 Plymouth to OHV, Red Diamond is it.

    Yes, that's a Jaguar six; the body was however an Austin Ruby.

    The Jag was replaced by a V8 later on.

    Awesome Scott. I can close my eyes and visualize Bruce Sizemore in another era making similar sounds. Good run.

    I believe that's David Majors. The number 1 signifies NHRA World Champion.

    Ford 300 six with a crossflow cylinder head. (Who'd ever be crazy enough to race one of those?)
