  1. Hi, all;

    Sorry I've been away for awhile; I've been busy remodeling the kitchen. Now that it's almost completed (it needs to be templated for quartz countertops), I can get back to this project. The chassis is nearly completed and the Mustang body is coming along nicely. I hope to have everything completed in the next couple of weeks. Thanks for looking and comments welcome.

    This is a great build. I'll be following.

    I didn't make it to Maple Grove this year but my son and grandson did. They overheard an interview with a driver saying that with TF and FC, the G forces are such that it can tend to pull your foot off the throttle, so you have to concentrate on keeping the pedal down. I had never heard that, but it makes sense.


    Thanks for the kind words - this is a photo (courtesy of Baumgartner Race Cars) of a typical TF/FC throttle pedal assembly.

    Again, I'd like to say what a cool project this is. I forgot to mention that I have a very good, long-time friend who's pretty heavily involved in Funny Car Chaos. A lot of folks know him as Shaggy Racer. Lyle Greenberg is also a friend.

    Thank you - your nostalgia dragster is a master class in metal work and fabrication. I remember seeing Lyle Greenberg racing at one of the Nitro Chaos events on Youtube; he drives the Cone Hunter Corvette. 

  4. Hi,all;

    I decided to change the Avenger body over to something more identifiable - a Mustang. I had started a Mustang conversion some years ago, but messed it up trying too hard to lower it. Instead, I will graft the nose nd tail onto the Avenger and rework the backlight. Thanks for looking and comments welcome.
