Nick- ok the vehicles we chose can not be newer the 85, but can we use newer engines, drive trains, and so on?, or do we have to keep everything with in the years stated

Jonathan I don t think we need to do that. Since my build will be a 1966 Karmann giha whit a Carrera gt V10 engine and that has got the green light from Nick.

I wish my Karmann would come next week so i can get started stuffing the engine in. :(

Johnathan, I'm willing to let some stuff slide, meaning newer engines in older cars, Newer tires, ETC

Did the wheels and plates.

Hmmm a hemi cuda ,70 Coronet and a slew of mopars we have as far s seeing dust from the hemi,
you will have all the so-called purist experts from Barret Jackson chasing you leaving me to show you
a proper wedge head will do :P better pics later this week. as my crew has sorta wheeled in some awesome parts from a chrysler showcar, apparently these boys have a nice viper V-10 with an auto trans
and thensuspension under the truck but i was asked not to ask where the parts have come from.
they keep me on my tows everytime i go out back of the shop i keep seeing new arrivals to be scrapped out .man the boys take after the older folk rowming around here . seems there has been this kindof thing going on since the late 50's .
With the connections here in this shop , nothing surprizes me much anymore.
Moreto come later this week good luck to everyone here and watch out for Lapchick on his cycle.

Michael

OK guys, count me in. Even though I'm running the Cannonball Run I figured I could build something else at the same time for the Gumball Rally. I've had the idea for this build for a long time and this is the perfect place for it. Here is my Dodge Shelby Charger, I thought it was an 85 but when I pulled it out I have 84 written on the box. I'll be combinding parts from 2 kits. Plans call for use of the 2.2L engine, though I will probably add a larger turbo and an intercooler.....and maybe a few surprises.

Ok I painted the Camaro engine block gloss red. Next needs to paint some other parts, and look if TunnerRam manifold fits with this engine. I did some bodywork too, and hopefully I can primer this thing soon.

Looks like the engine needs another coat of paint, though.
