Heres my latest project im working on this is my first drag car im building i thought about building a Bracket Racer for some time. I might need some assistance on this build to point me in the right direction.

This what i had in mind.

I will follow this one for sure. This is one of the best looking cars from the 80's. Are you planning to use original Six Cylinder Turbo engine, or swapping V8 engine for this one?

Billy,
Thanks for offering that will be helpful. Got back to work on the Regal tonight i'd removed the fuel tank, spare tire well, inner fenderwells & radiator shroud. I'd scratchbuilt a plate to fill the void where the A/C evaporator & blower motor once was.
