Ira, can you put an engine next to this for us? It looks like you made it too shallow for an engine to fit.

 

Thanks for your comment Rob!

The MPC "Can AM" Turbine Engine is my choice, its a Great Fit. 2 Turbocharged Harleys or a 4-Banger Racing Engine would also be an easy fit... B)

Another great build!  A Corvair flat six might fit, and would be extremely different.

You could always do a boxster type 10 or 12 clyender or one long rotary engine if a standard engine wont work.

That is if you dont have something even crayzer in mind

 

Thanks for your suggestions Gary!

 

A Rotary Engine would probably fit too... B)

Well everything is so aero, frankly the US Air Force seems a no brainer as a sponsor. We'll seen military sponsors in NASCAR, why not LSR? That would also make the color, obvious.

Getting better by the day . Still think the Stars and Stripes are right for it draped over both vehicles.

and make a custom flat 12 corvair and quad turbo with a large dose of nitrous :D .

This has inspired me to come up with some sort of hauler but that is off in the future.....
