    Not Gonna lie. Your Hambster was a inspiration in the creation of mine. Followed your thread closely from the very first one and treated it as a how to.

  3. Wow! It is so cool to see so many outstanding 6 powered cars!! It's nice to know there are others who share the same genetic defect :) Many of you have already seen pics of our '50 Chevy pickup with an injected 292. Best time to date is 10.94 at 119 mph. IMG-1498.JPG IMG-0019.JPG

  6. Hey, Bench Seat 4speed - I am with you all the way!! The race truck up above is a bench seat 4 speed, our '56 is a bench seat 4 speed (becoming a 5 speed), and our blue '50 driver pickup is a 5 speed bench seat. I remember the first new car I ever owned was a '68 Chevelle SS 396 350 hp with..... a bench seat 4 speed. I have loved them ever since!

  10. Here's our '56. It's not really a "race" car but we do race it some. It's more of a street/strip car, I guess. We've owned it for 46 years so it is part of the family. IMG-1450.jpg 56interior post.JPG 56engine doc.JPG

    OK, that also explains why the signage is not a blur as the camera would be panned. Good pic.

    Very cool! Are all the hambster drags the same set up ? I saw those two both ran Ford 170. I’m surprised it’s wasn’t a 200. I’m guessing a built c4 behind them? Looks like cheap fun. I dig it

    I was there hat day crewing for the green 40 Chev coupe. That's Dick Peterson's car. 292, Lump port Head, 3 Webers, 12.5 cr, 350 TH, 4:10 with a spool. Dick passed away in 2014. The 55 ran a 302 Jimmy and was owned by Frank Berlotuci (sp) of Hot Heads by Frank fame.

    Owner / Driver??? With #11 maybe a Div. I car?

    It looks like a Ford hybrid crossflow head six. Dig the extended magneto above the valve cover (to clear the relocated intakes).

    I think that was in a batch from a track in Canada.

    You may be right loudbang, that pickup in the background is badged as a Mercury, a Canadian variant of a Ford F100. Somebody probably recognized all the orange license plates.
