In Topic: Stumbled across a pic of this--Toronado Station Wagon!

24 November 2014 - 07:57 PM

When I was about 12, a friend of one of my neighbor's had a Toronado, the he had built into a sedan delivery. It was a beauty. It was red & looked factory. The last time I saw it, it had been rear ended. What a heartbreak. It may have been one of the reasons I love sedan deliveries & wagons.

Sorry for really hijacking the thread, Randy. The least I should have done, was commented on you great scratch building or commended you for tackling a subject, I've never seen, in scale.

 

Thanks for the answers about ETs & speed. 7.90s @ 85 is pretty stout for kids & teenagers. Throw a shift in there & leg it out to the 1/4, they'd be in the 12s. I'd say those little motors are putting out a bit more than 5HP.

Very Very neat! excellent job scratch building this junior! By no means do I mean to hijack your post, but I used to race a junior just two years ago, they're a great learning experience and great for learning to race before stepping up to a big car!

Just out of curiosity, what kind of times does a Jr. Dragster do, in the 1/4 mile.

Fantastic!!! That will make a great companion, for your '56. The weathering, especially the frame, is outstanding.
