I wasn't going to post the progress of this project, because I am building this for a local contest this July, but I figure I need the motivation to keep with it as it progresses. I tend to not get 100% finished with things, so it will help to have an audience. I hope.
Anyway, this Ed Pink front engine dragster will be easily the most advanced and optimistic build I have attempted, only having really done OOB kit builds with wiring and good paint details. I'm tremendously excited about this car for a lot of reasons, but mainly because this car has been restored by Pete Eastwood for Cacklefest and there is a ton of documentation and photo detail of this car. It was even the focus of a 1964 Hot Rod Magazine 2-issue build article following Don Long building the actual car (which I actually found the original issues). It was built in 1964 and competed in the 1965 NHRA Top Fuel class winning in it's first time on the track at the Winternationals in 1965. It has a spectacular pedigree and a wonderful amount of reference material to use in the build.
So, here we go...
