    I'm a long time lurker and attended the H.A.M.B. drags at Mo-Kan last year for the first time!

    I was blown away with the quality and number of rides!

    I grew up about 40 miles from Mo-Kan and it was the first dragstrip that I ever went to as a teenager so it holds a special place in my heart.

    I have a '63 Dodge 330 that I rescued from a farmer back in the mid-90's and shoved in the back of Dad's barn for a few years while I played with a '71 'Cuda. I sold the 'Cuda recently and put all my focus on the '63 since it was always my favorite.

    It's a 440/727/3.55 combo with A-100 seats, radio and heater delete and black with a red interior. I've done 90% of the work myself with the exceptions being the upholstery and machine work on the engine. I'm finishing up headliner and carpet in the next couple of weeks and hope to have it terrorizing the neighborhood this fall!

    Here it is peeking out of the garage.

    Still in PPG DP90 Epoxy while I shake it down and de-bug it.

    Cool!

    I plan on taking this one out to KID but it will probably be next year.

    I recently got the windshield and gasket and discovered that the headliner really needs to go in first so that and carpet are on order and should be here any day.

    It's been a comedy of errors trying to get the right windshield gasket here and get it installed!

    It is kinda fun to drive at 100 mph with the windshield out, though! LOL!

    Never did that. In the early seveties the 63 wasnt that old and had never had the windshield out yet.

    Yeah, I know where Potwin is.

    I lived in Newton for about 12 years before I moved to Wichita.

    Funny. I bought mine for $275.00.:D

    Of course the only bolt on panels that are original to it is the passenger door and the trunk lid. :D

    Mine started life as a teal/teal slant 6 car with a 3 on the tree.

    The old farmer I bought it from was using the trunk to store dog food. :eek:
