    How about a dyno display?

    You could build an engine test stand to display it on.
  3. Old Photographs

    I could spend hours looking through the Auto World catalog.

    In my experience back in the 60's and 70's, local tracks were a LOT more forgiving of the class rules than the national races. I knew several racers that were running Modified Production with cars that would have been in the Altered or Gas classes at a national event. They would not have been competitive, either, in those classes ;-). Also, there were lots of travelling match racers that threw the rule book away in the name of making money. They would be paid to show at these local races as crowd pleasers. The rules issues you have pointed out don't bother me at all. What you are building would have looked perfectly at home, and probably much nicer than most of the cars, at Golden Triangle Dragstrip in Beaumont, TX in the late 60's and early 70's. when I was a regular spectator and occasional participant.

    I followed some of that build on the HAMB. It was truly a labor of love and an amazing piece of work.
  6. What Engine is this ?

    Not a 351C though they look similar. It is a 385 series Ford 429/460. The 351C has angled exhaust bolts (top and bottom corners of the port). The 429 has them straight across from each other like this engine does..
  7. Don't give up Dave. It's people like you that keep the board interesting. I get this BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH all the time,

  8. Tired of your normal build subjects?

    Sorry if this topic offended some of you. It was meant to be a funny look at some really messed up cars, not a slam on your favorite builds. I'll go back to lurking in the background now. Heaven forbid I should ever try to brighten your day with a little humor again. DJ
  9. Tired of your normal build subjects?

    This one looks like something from a 007 film.

Maybe you are tired of the same-old same-old hot rod/F1/NASCAR/whatever? Looking to get rid of a few pieces from the parts box that you could never figure out what to do with? Well, you just hit the mother load of inspiration!
  11. I can't believe it.

    I had a friend who worked at Hobby Lobby. He got me about a dozen kits that they were throwing out because someone had opened them. Several were complete but three low rider kits were missing the wire wheels and tiny tires.
  12. Anyone interested in this one?

    I have the pickup truck version of that I would let go for half that price if anyone is interested! ;-)
  13. What do you miss about classic cars or cars of the past?

    One of the things I miss most is Options! Most new vehicles have packages that include different stuff but you can't pick and choose. If you want navigation, you have to buy the high end package with Bose sound, heated power seats, sun roof, etc. Individual options are rare. The other thing I miss is interior colors. When I ordered a new Camaro in 1975, I had the choice of at least 6 interior colors (white, tan, black, blue, red, green) and you could actually get those with any combo exterior color. If you wanted a black car with red interior, no problem. Now your interior is tied to the exterior color and if you have any choice at all, it is beige or gray.
  14. Those old custom were changed over years as the tastes and judging rules changed. One issue was the way points were given out in the contests. Each change from stock added points to the score. The top scorer won, many times at the cost of appearance. That is how the Kookie Kar went from an awesome T bucket to a god-awful mess.
  15. The Collier Collection, lots of classic cars

    Amazing collection. Thanks for the link!
