  1. Nice job on this car. Love the color!
  2. The MT car appears to have some type of blower in the front of the car driven off the crankshaft of the front motor. It looks like the blower then feeds both engines via some ductwork over the top of the engines. Mickey Thompson was nothing if not creative!!
  3. Mr. Teresi, I have several pictures of the restored car from the Don Garlits Museum in Ocala if they would be of any interest to you. They were taken in 2012 and 2016.
  4. Beautiful work, as we've come to expect from you. Fantastic idea to build the jig and great implementation of the idea. Good job sir!!
  5. I love your work sir!! This thing is killer! Amazing work!
  6. Unreal! If I didn't see some items in the background I'd swear this was a full sized, functioning engine. Amazing unbelievable work sir!!!!
  7. Now...a couple of observations from the trip to the Garlics museum and seeing this car in person: 1.) The front of the "wedge" is ABOUT the same width as the front wheels spacing. 2.) The headers on the car in the museum come out from under the bodywork, although the CarCraft article has them coming out of the bodywork. I do have about four or five other pictures I can post if anyone needs them. I'm not sure if they'll help anyone or not, but willing to share.
  8. Okay...I'm going to see if I can make this work.
  9. I went to the Garlits museum Ocala, Florida in February of this year, and have several pictures of the Prudhomme wedge dragster (supposedly the original) in the museum that I can post IF someone can help me with posting the pictures since Photobucket has decided to be the south end of Northbound horses.
  10. Okay guys, why can I not see the pictures? All I can see is an image that says "Please update your account to enable 3rd party hosting" and then "for important info please go to www.photobucket.com/p500"
  11. I was (and still am!) a HUGE drag racing fan and I was particularly fond of Don Prudhomme and Tom McEwen. I have tried to build many of their late 60's and 70's cars and over the last 6 weeks I've built the recent releases by MPC. No, they are not super detailed, and they may vary from the actual cars in some details, but they were fun to build and look pretty good! I hope you like them!
  12. As always, just AMAZING work. I have said it before but this car has made the transition from "just" a model car to a work of art. Your skills are incredible!! Steve
  13. This has become so much more than a model...it has become a work of art! Incredible, amazing work. Great job!!
  14. Amazing, outstanding and any other superlative you can come up with. Great work!!!
  15. Beautiful, amazing, awesome. Plus every other positive adjective out there. Nice work!!
