    It's a long term retirement project recreating his street race car from the early seventies. The engine is around 500 cubes now with Hilborn EFI. They expect around 700hp when it goes on the dyno in the spring. Car is a 55 chev, narrowed 9" flip front stripped down car, hope to be on the road this summer in primer, maybe paint next winter. I'll get a video of the startup, but the car is OT, so I'll leave that off

    Don Hampton from Hampton blowers made it for me. It is a 380 inch 348 and dynoed 550 horse, 530 torque, 7.5 boost. It should scoot pretty good.

    A friend of mine's Ford coupe. Intentionally rough looking (he has lots of nice cars) the car runs a tci frame and a nasty built 409
