Currently sitting in my back yard. Once was, and maybe will be again. Time will tell. Needs a body, engine, trans, new bushings on the suspension... well, almost everything. Who puts a NASCAR engine in a quarter-miler? 351-4V Cleveland, AOD, 9-inch with disc brakes.

Sorry, Skip. I don't mean to be a smart-ass, just the first thing that came to mind. ;)


Here's my favorite pic. A few good friends, collective resources and some good fortune made it possible. :D

No problem, Doc. Nice race car.

PS- Hemis are good at everything. :D I have even heard that owning one will make an old guy like me feel "young" again. [ddd

Fiberglass '34 Chev Roadster race car shell.

Just picked this up off of CL. Like most old Chevies, it will need wood installed. :D Just from loading it in my truck, I am itching all over. The width is perfect, but it is about 20 inches longer than the former '32 Bantam body.

If I chicken out on using it, I am pretty sure i can get my investment back.

Kind of a sad story. The shop that made it had a fire, and all the molds were destroyed. 40+ years of building car bodies gone. This is likely the last one.

I just got the black shell. No front end available. I am thinking that tapering the running boards down to the cowl would fix that. We don't need no stinking... Open it up for two seats, follow the directions in the fiberglass thread. Nothin' to it! Right???

How do I make it look rusty? :D

Our last Nostalgia Front Motor dragster, West Coast NE-1 ride that ran on a 7.50 index and our NE-2 28 Altered Roadster that ran a 8.50 index. Both have moved on to new owners. Lots of fun with great race friends.

dmw56 -- Thanks for the nice words.

Another Vintage dragster I ran was built in my garage like we did in the old days. Ran a 194" Chevy 6 with dual 94 carbs. This car was built for old school "Flag Starts" at Eagle Field in central California. :D

i built this back in '94 for a nostalgia race we had here at are local track. at that time, there was only 2 races of this type at any track in socal. the antique nats and the yesteryears drags. the old time type drags had not caught on yet. that is not to say there wern't nostalgia drags, there were, just not running old motors.

sgtpontiac 02-02-2018 12:06 PM
