  1. Most impressive chassis work - I'll be following right along!
  2. Very nicely done - looks like it can be fired up and head for the bleach box!
  3. Hi, Wes: Thanks for posting the video. It did me good and was great to see all of the members that I have not seen since 2007. I promise to be at next year's show, God willing. I have already cleared it with my wife. I look forward to seeing more photos from this year's show. God bless you all and see you in 2023.
  4. No, sir; it's actually Julie Nataas, who drives the Meyer Racing A/Fuel Dragster.
  5. Thank you very much - here is a small update; driver figure modified from Monogram sprint car kit.
  6. Thank you very much - who's Bob? 😀
  7. Your Vega 's paint job came out very nice - I remember when the song was first released!
  8. Engine complete except for a few details; on to the chassis and body. Thanks for looking and comments welcome.
  9. Thank you for your kind words and for photographing the car for the club's website - I hope to be at the next meeting! Your Porsche was awesome!

  11. WOW! The detail in the interior is incredible - I'm learning a lot just by following your build!

  13. Yes it does; still needs a tweak or two.
  14. Magnetos ready for installation, fuel distribution blocks in place; starter pulley, input/output shaft and injector hat mocked up, valve covers painted. Next is engine painting and mag installation. thanks for looking and comment welcome.
  15. The NHRA rules for TA/FC for next year have been amended to include injected nitro cars: minimum weight is 2,400 lbs., maximum engine displacement is 456 cid, maximum nitro percentage at sea-level events is 85% with 95% at high altitude events (i.e. Denver), no electro/pneumatic clutch management systems or electronic fuel control systems and no transmission; direct drive only. Body style can be 1969 or later. Otherwise, all other TA/FC rules apply.
  16. Thank you for your interest, Barry. This is a photo of Randy Meyer's new injected nitro car that he ran at a Funny Car Chaos event earlier this year.
  17. Thanks for posting - I remember buying one of those MPC Corvettes back in 1980; it was a great kit! I'll have my first update in a day or so - I'm in the process of painting the engine.
