2015 Vintage Supermodified

21 October 2014 - 04:33 AM

027_zpsab7c4375.jpgI built this mock up of a car I designed and am going to build starting next month. I will race this in vintage shows in the west. The cars have to look like supers from the 70s and have a buggy spring front with a beam axle, and a roof. It will be a 410. They can't have more than 6" of offset so I moved the motor over 3" and the axles over another 3" then tilted the engine 30 degrees for left side weight bias.

Locked out of My Thread

I'm locked out of my thread about the Beck Pavement Sprinter. I didn't cuss, call anyone names, post lewd pictures and do anything I haven't done for the last two years here. What is the problem? I'm sure this will get deleted fast so hopefully someone will see it and fix the situation.

1974 Beck Pavement Sprinter

05 June 2014 - 02:34 AM

I'm starting another sprint car for a client in Vegas. He had this Beck sprint car restored 3 years ago and had been going all over racing it in vintage shows. He contacted me about buildinga replica last summer and we were to meet up at a race in Calif, in July. The week before, he was racing his sprinter and destroyed it and himself. He was in a hospital, up in Oregon, for months, before being released to go home. These vintage sprint cars really interest me. This one has a bolt on cage, buggy spring front with torsion bars at the rear. Beautiful car. The model will have injectors not a carb like the real one had.




RJ Johnson's 2013 USAC Champion

25 November 2013 - 02:49 AM

I'm lucky enough to have been asked to build the sprint car driven by RJ Johnson, this year, to a Southwest USAC championship. As always it's 1/8 scale, scratch built. I met the owners at the last race, last weekend in Peoria AZ. I started drawing plans the Sunday after that last race. Built the frame and body in 1 weeks time. This is a Sherman chassis with a Roush/ Yates Ford 360 motor.
