Just started to play around with this, it'll be mostly box stock with some wheels, tires and a cage maybe I'll throw a small block chevy in it to make the purists mad. Comments, advice, and criticism is all welcome :)

Nice wheels and tires. I like the stance. I would go with Ford motor but your build...

Fish mouthed all the bars for better fit at the joints, the cage should be finished sometime tonight or early tomorrow.

Just finished up the cage, it's a simple 10 point with some extra bars, might go further. Note: yes I know it doesn't have door bars, I need to figure out what I'll be doing for seats first.

This is really cool! Where did you source the wheels/tires from?

Thank you, Ron, the wheels are from the rat roaster, the slicks are race masters from the amt parts pack, and the fronts are firestones from the amt '66 nova.

Thank you, Id like to sit it down more but I'd have to completely tub the car which if I was going to go through the trouble of back halving the car id put a much larger tire under it, I kind of want to keep the outlaw 8.5 look that it has because I think the small tire looks good.

I'm pretty happy with the fit of the cage in the body, all you can really see from the side is the main hoop.

It looks good the way you have it im not trying to be rude, i personally like stuff completely smooth and lowered can't wait to see it finished..... I have 10.5 69 camaro I'm working on I still need to build the cage for but check it out sometime let me know what you think it was posted here in the drag racing section but somehow got moved to diecast

I didn't take it as being rude or anything, everybody has an opinion about how a car should sit, no harm, no foul. I would like to have it sit lower as well but ground clearance for the exhaust and oil pan is an obstacle. I'll head over to the diecast section and check your camaro out.

Just more cage work, no big deal, it's nothing like the cages Tyrone builds but I think it looks okay.

I think you have the stance/wheels/tires nailed down perfectly, wouldn't mess with it at all. Impressed with the cage you put together, too.
