It will no doubt be different. I'll be following this build, like to see how it turns out,from what I've seen of your previous builds this should be a looker.

Should be interesting John. Don't worry about it being believeable or not. One of the best parts of the pro mod classes is seeing something just a little bit different than what the next guy is running. Just take a peek at some of the European/Australian drag sites and you will see some very interesting body styles selected for competition, including high end Mercedes and BMW's. Heck, if Rick Moore can turn a Lambhorgini Countach into a pro mod (late 80's, early 90's), then what you have planned is not so far-fetched. Can't wait to see what you do with it.

Hi John, after seeing this Pro-Mod build and some others I have noticed that the front ends are usually stretched and the body is widened. I live in Kansas so I have only seen the NHRA Summer Nationals in Topeka and they don’t run the Pro-Mods at that event so I have never seen them in person.

My question is, are they a set wheel base and width per the rules? It seems like a lot of body mods are needed to make an accurate representation of one of these cars.

This going to be a gorgeous car, the XKE looks good as any type of race car.

From what I've seen of the rules for the P/M type car (I say P/M type because the ADRL does not use the Pro-Mod moniker,Pro-Extreme for blown cars & Pro-Nitrous for nitrous cars),both racing bodies rules are same up to certain points, the wheelbase is the same: min.100" max.115" (for cars, trucks are longer)width is also the same: 2" either way, both allow a front overhang of 45"'s from center of wheel to tip of the nose with a approved extension if the front doesn't make it to 45".
