I'm speechless. I'm not saying, I like it.
Great thread. Some really cool and crazy stuff.
Kinda what I thought when I saw it for the first time at Goodguys Pulleyup
Jeff Dunham owns that rod now.
Hide the women and children!
That's putting it nicely. Wow.
I say every year, it will be this summer, but never seems to work out that way. Thanks for the kind words
Speechless as in WTF!!
So, you want to open the exhaust? Here is Tommy Jenkins Texas Twister from back in the day.
Here's what I was building about the same time. My first set. Gas welded with stripped coat hangers.
I built these 50 years ago, found some rusty tailpipes behind a gas station. My humble beginnings.
I'll probably get yelled at and I know it's off topic but in 1964 I was in England and attended a F1 race and just the look of eight pipes coming out and over the top of the Coventry Ford cars then twisted into a wad then ending in two long megaphone cones was pure art. The sound of those engines running at 10-12K would make your neck hair stand up. If you have ever seen the first two minutes of the movie Grand Prix you understand.
I'm not sure if you would call my RPU's headers wild and crazy but I like them
Larry, the way you ran them though the frame is a bit wild and crazy
Randy Bianchi's channeled 3W:
Cool stuff Marty! I love the old pic of your first set from 50 years ago. My first set was about 35 years ago for my friend Steve Brown (R.I.P.). Back then in New Zealand you couldn't just order that stuff. Build your own or go without....
couple of years later....
Do you have any pics of this first T fully assembled?

I'd love to see that T in the top photo with body etc. on!
I always thought that car had weird proportions,
Now that the drivers position is there, it must be a 3/4 scale body or something.
I've always been a fan of Tommy Ivo's single-engine Buick dragster's headers.
