The idea here is that when Javelin Engineering finish an engine build they strap it into Muffin, trailer her to the strip and run a couple of passes down the 1/4 mile to see how it goes.

Although there are no pics of the underside I built the engine & tranny mounts to be adjustable for a variety of engines.

That is sweet!  Might need to add some ballast to the bed, though.  I'm sure rear tires don't last long on this beast.

I really like what you have done with this kit. The fact that it has history, is over the top.

I dig it Fred, and as the others have said, the backstory makes it even better. I love those first two 3/4 front views, very realistic. I can just see ( and hear it ) with uncorked headers burning those rear tires off.
