Art Arfons Green Monster #6

15 March 2009 - 05:56 AM

Hey George53 buddy, thanks for emailing me and checking if everything was cool with me.
Here you are George, the car that you saw in person when you'ze was litlle at the track

Here's something you dont see every day, Allison V-12 aircraft powered home made dragster from the 50's. Most know who Art Arfons was and what he did for the automotive and racing. This is one guy who either had a death wish or just plain nuts. But through his engineering of dragsters, numorous land speed record breaking cars, to monster truck pullers he was one of the most famous pioneers of racing with his Jet engine powered 1/4 milers.....so I decided to build this from scratch except the Allison engine and see what i would be able to accomplish.

Frame rails from styrene square rod and round rod, Allison aircraft motor from the Revell parts pack, wheels from the Ford F-350 dually, tires from old 1940's truck and as for the body.....
;) lets say I had 2 choices..... 1-buy an aircraft kit at a cost of $40+ and hope to be the right shape and size.....OR.... :o UM! think WAY outside the box and UH Yikes!! devile go to and adult store and buy a torpedo for $7.95, LMAO gut it... so I can cut it up and weld the nose end to the frame which happens to be a perfect fit and shape. :lol:
Guess which one i picked :lol:

The conffession

10 January 2009 - 05:16 AM

'Bless me Father, for I have sinned. I have been with a loose girl'.
The priest asks, 'Is that you, little Joey Pagano ?'


'Yes, Father, it is.'


'And who was the girl you were with?'
'I can't tell you, Father, I don't want to ruin her reputation'
Well, Joey, I'm sure to find out her name sooner or later so you may as well tell me now. Was it Tina Minetti?'
'I cannot say.'
'Was it Teresa Mazzarelli?'
'I'll never tell.'
'Was it Nina Capelli?'
'I'm sorry, but I cannot name her.'
'Was it Cathy Piriano?'
'My lips are sealed.'
'Was it Rosa DiAngelo, then?'
'Please, Father, I cannot tell you.'


The priest sighs in frustration. 'You're very tight lipped, and I admire that. But you've sinned and have to atone. You cannot be an altar boy now for 4 months. Now you go and behave yourself.'


Joey walks back to his pew, and his friend Franco slides over and whispers, 'What'd you get?'


'Four months vacation and five good leads.'

1937 Ford Street Rod

04 January 2009 - 07:16 PM

I based this build on a 1:1 car hat I had seen years ago in Truckin' magazine. I started with the Boyd's Smoothster kit by Testors. Molded in the chrome trimming, Cut the body behind the drivers seat and finished it off as a pick up by scratchbuilding the rear half of the model including widening the rear fenders to accomodate the box. The consol was scratch built, and the roof was shortened to fit the new bod style. Got rid of the front suspension that came with the kit and replaced it with a more accurate independent set up. Brakes are the 15 inch discs by Pegasus, and the tires and wheels are the 19" chrome T's with big and little tires also by Pegasus. A ford motor ws used with a 6 pack set up with resin cast air cleaners. The paint is 2003 Lambourghini Alta Tangerine Pearl Orange with a touch of Sunset Russet Pearl.
