69 Cougar, if I finish it before the end of the month, it'll be #3 for the year (ties last year total)

69 Nova Pro Touring

66 Nova Drag car

58 Vette Stock

Focus on out of the box stuff, for the rest of next year, to get some stuff finished & put a dent, in my unbuilt stash

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

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.

In Topic: What about the up & coming kids? ....Junior Dragster

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.
