My drag project

I have an idea that I am going to try. I have an '88 F-150 that I am building a 460 (of course!!!) to put in it and put it on the track. Am I completely stupid, or is this a good idea? You just don't see many Ford trucks on the strip, so I thought I would try it.

random-strike,

Apparently you're a new user and may not have picked up on the fact that this site is relatively "clean cut".

I don't intend to preach, I just like to keep the site at a current standard so your post has been edited.

Nothing personal.

Naaa, not stupid. You can drag race anything if you can dream it. Check out this F-100 of Willinghams. It is currently under re-constuction and is going to be bad! 8)




More pics and info on his truck here...... http://www.cardomain.com/ride/731461

We race a black-primered '88 Ranger with a 514. It's as ugly as homemade poop, but it jerks the front end up for 100' and hauls. Fun to drive....fun to watch.

The older I get, the smarter Dad was.

Yep, that would be Wes Littrell's old 65 or 66 F100. It's running an 557 on alcohol. It's still got the straight axle in it if I recall correctly. Runs in the 8's.......


Wayne pretty much summed it up. If you can dream it then do it.

I think if you lowered it a little and tucked up the rear tires it would handle a lot better down track. Plus you would get cool points for being different.
