    Very cool thread - always thought this would be a cool idea.
    Used to be a 76 Laguna that ran around this area done this way - haven't seen it in a long time.
    There are 2 #3 late model replicas that run around Omaha - one white, one black, and one red as Dale JRs car. They are members of the same family and are pretty well done but bone stock under the paint.
    A friend of mine built this;

    It's built with all real race car parts, 351 with a Richmond 6 speed.
    I got a good 60 mile or better ride in it - simply unbelievable!

    Well, the one I'm building is pretty tame compared to what some of you guys are doing. I'm building a 48 Plymouth business coupe as a street driven race car replica from our local dirt track from the early-mid 60s.

    My 48 is a body shell put on a Dodge Dakota frame that I'm building with a 4 point cage, full fenders with cut wheel wells, side and front and rear nerf bars. I plan on driving it all overthe place when its done, so I'm starting with the Dakota's V6 5 speed but may upgrade to a healthy V8 at a later date. I hope to have it on the road by summer 2011, we will see how the money holds up. Gene

    That truck would be fun. I could see you in a Torino Tim, and the visible-man version as well.

    He actually enjoys giving rides in it.
    Take my word for it - you'd never forget it!

    Probably be awhile before he gets it back down here - notice the Canada plates.
    He will be doing a couple few big shows down here with it next year - I can post where it will be.
    BTW - it hasn't been on a trailer since it came back from paint with no driveline. As Ken put it "Trucks are meant to be driven not just looked at"

    I might do the Fred Lorenzen '63-1/2 Fastback ride for the street. I advertized my '63-1/2 Galaxy for sale, and a Hamber called. He was to come and see it last week, but didn't call...There are leaks on here as well as Craigslist. I wouldn't sell it to him now for twice the price.
    That being said... I have a fresh 406 I've just finished, (was going to use it in my '54 Ford Coupe gasser; I also have a 460 I built, that can go in the '54)
    406 FE in the Galaxie, have heavy duty 3-speed toploader trans converted to direct floor shift. Car's interior is worn, so a NASCAR streeter is just the ticket.
    Nice thing is the wide wheels, roll cage, all the hard stuff gets done 'in house'.
    And I've got everything.

    I have been keen to do a similar style with a 64 pontiac grand prix, always loved the look of this style of cars. Has anyone got any photos of a 64 grand prix done this way?

    A friend of mine's dad used to race a #2+ 33' Plymouth in the early 60's. When the time was right, he bought a 33 and made it into a street-able racecar that runs on Miller Lite! He runs open headers and is a very cool rod!

    He is also an artist and is a good car whiz, he used to have a 66 Corvete he built from an s10 chassis. And he now has a 1948 Ford Rat Rod Pickup he built from a late 90's Buick and is building a 59' T-Bird Curtis Turner Replica. He also builds custom pedal cars, bikes and go-carts.

    Video of Beer Test. http://racersreunion.ning.com/video/rat-rod-runs-on-beer

    Here are some photos of his street-able racer: [​IMG]

    And a few of the custom pedal cars he builds too!

  29. That Falcon is "KILLER" bad.

    Not much on the late engine, but I like the rest. I always thought these and Chevy II's made great looking race cars.

    My choice for an engine would be an FE.
