    It's on Alcohol. I wish the audio did it justice. This thing has a sound all it's own.

    Todd, Bad ass. I dont know where I first seen a photo of the Hollish Bros. car. But it was the side view with the dude standing next to it. And I thought "that is kick ass". Then I found out that it got re-created. Now it runs.!!!! Cool.

    Man you like to live dangerously. Chain driven blower with a fuel tank sitting right next to it and no fire extinguisher in sight. I would hate to see all your fine work go up in a ball of flame.

    That chain has broke before. My fault. To tight. The gaurd does it's job, It never leaves the blower sprocket, just kills the engine. There was a fire extinguisher in sight, just not your sight.

    I was in the garage over the weekend building the coupler scatter shield and it occured to me that I haven't posted any pic's of the car without the body on it. I hope the Chassis Research fans like it. Next fab will be the scatter sheild for the flywheel/clutch. Todd

    Well it's been awhile since I've posted anything on here so I figured it was time for a update. Had new front wheels built over the winter with parts i've been collecting for a while now. Also had a scoop cover sewd up for it. The wheels really do make all the differance. I'll see ya at the "Detroit Dragway Reunion" May 21st at Milan Dragway.
