I've been an occasional lurker for a couple years and have wanted to try my hand at building a HA/GR for that long, thanks to Old6rodder. I've taken the time lately to go through all 32 pages of posts, so I can avoid all of the automatics, 4 barrels and narrowed rear ends stuff. I'm dedicated to the Slant 6, so that is the only option there. I have several to choose from. I've always run automatics for drag racing, but banging gears for a change sounds like a blast! It's not like I'll be running in any HA/GR pure events given my location, so I've thought about going the SDRA route if I can't come up with a good 3 or 4 speed set up. I picked up a '33 Chevy frame a couple weeks ago, so that will be the basis to start with. They had cut the rear section and moved it up and were using it as a farm trailer of sorts. Right now the wheelbase is 84", but once I reconfigure it for a HA/GR it should be legal length. I plan to keep it pretty short and may even follow Old6rodder's side slung theme. It's gonna be a slow process with several other projects needing to take precedence over this one, but I'm really looking forward to going old school and having some fun. I wasn't around during this era (born in '67), so I'll try and learn as much as I can and be as true to things as I can.
