That is Awesome Scotty...Fresh flattie and a 10 is a nice reward ! Wish I was their to fix ya an Angus Fajita .
I shot a ton of video's today, I think I recored that pass, it'll take me a couple days of editing before I know if I have it or not.
A video would be great Kenneth
Well done Skot...........I'm jealous........That is my all time goal to get the WOLF in the high 10's
It was the hit of the show! way to go, Skotz!
Hope to see it in person next weekend!
That's moving in a flattie Congrats Skotz
Atta boy Skot !!!
What gears did you settle on????
That's awesome! That FED looks KILLER too! Congrats!
Thanks for "the announcement".....and Thanks to everyone for the nice comments.
This has been quite a milestone to get into the 10's with a Flathead Rail that was built on a small budget, with a lot of donations of parts from a bunch of friends....Thanks Guys for helping me "live the dream"!!!!....AND it was done on the 32nd pass on the car(for those of you who know me...that's a special number).
It literally has "rusty cylinder bores", used bearings, all homemade stuff, like the blower manifold/plates/drive parts, headers, etc.....I did all the porting and relieving, head work and assembly, so it's not some "hi-buck, store bought" engine, but more of a return to "what I wish I could have done in High School"
It was originally a "Stucky Chassis" from around 1960 that had been lengthened to 138 around 1962....had to straighten out the frame, widen it so I could fit and fit a new cage and other safety pieces(would have been easier to start over ....haha). Paul Wright did the aluminum body and Mercury Charlie painted the orange portion. It has literally been a labor of love....never could come up with an "excuse" to build/drive a FED, until all of this Nostalgia comeback... Thanks HAMB!!!
Been working on a "real engine" for several months....hoping to have it all sorted out by Day of the Drags(El Jefe, are you gonna have your's ready?).
Thanks again for the supportive comments, HAMBers
I just started out checking out your CR FED build....that's a real nice car that you're putting together!!!
For those who haven't seen it....it's worth looking at his site!
For you that don't know yet.....Kathy is putting together a Flathead FED now that the 32 is up and going....she says stuff like "gonna kick my ass" .....hahaha....."and" I keep on trying to help her do it.....We Flathead Folks are a "sick bunch"
Here's the "secret trick" for you.....shhhhh.....put a Flathead in it....hahaha
Missed seeing you on Sat
Wow! Way to go. Congrats!
Congrats!! That's awesome. Josh
Ha Ha! Casey made me say it - you know "smack talk"! Guess what the big brown truck brought me today??? A little baby blower - it's so cute!
Are you going to Yello Belly?
Very Nice. A 10;90 at 132 Mph would be cool !
