  1. Is there a recommended aftermarket company that does the blue silicone couplers for turbo duct tubes? Any help would be appreciated.

  3. Aftermarket Pro-touring parts???

    The easiest way of buying pro-touring parts is just buying a Viper kit. That would have nearly everything you need and they aren't in demand so prices should be fairly reasonable.
  4. Stupid Is the New Smart

    You just can't make this stuff up. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2018/01/13/teens-are-daring-each-other-to-eat-tide-pods-we-dont-need-to-tell-you-thats-a-bad-idea/?utm_term=.3376a40553b7
  5. I think trying to create a manifold to dump equal amounts of air into three separate carbs would be problematic. I'd modify the intake to fit a single big 4-barrel or build some sort of EFI system with a throttle body (which is what I'm doing with my Slant 6 Cannonballer) would be easier and look more authentic.
  6. That looks super, Chuck. I like it.
  7. Joe's Backyard Paradise

    Looking forward to it.

    I did get some bench time this past weekend, but not a lot. I was able to get the bumper mounts from the '37 Ford ready to mount to the chassis and the body modified to allow the bumpers. They aren't a perfect fit but they are pretty darn close. Pics soon.
  9. AMT '32 Coupe - a basic street rod

    Nothing basic about that. Very nicely done.
  10. 70 Hemi Cuda - 2nd Time Around

    A very good looking model. Well done sir.
  11. 2018 Cannonball Run

    I've done that exact mod for a Model A. Shoot me a PM if you want to see how mine turned out.
  12. SB Chevy valve covers

    A good source for these is the Miami Vice Daytona. I'm sorry but I don't have another set.
  13. 48 ford chopped woody

    I like it quite a lot. Nice work on the chop. What are those three tubes on the back?
  14. 2018 Cannonball Run

    Absolutely fine. Looking forward to it.

    I think if we were doing pretty much any other theme, a curbside would likely be okay, although it's certainly not the norm for Cannonball racers. However as the theme specifically calls out a particular style engine, I do not believe a curbside is a good pick. Having said that, I am NOT going to disallow the model, as we have never had a rule against curbsides. I'm not inclined to make one now. If you want to build it as a curbside and call it an in-liner, so be it. But .................. on December 2, we race. It's hard to win a race without an engine.
